A gathering of Mighty Antars

Most of you know that I recently completed the quest to add the Mighty Antar with Transformer load to my collection. For me, this marked the completion of having one each of the three basic Mighty Antar versions: the original tank transporter, the Low Loader with Propeller, and the Transformer load. As I mentioned in an earlier post today, I got the Tank Transporter for Christmas in 1956, so have had that one for a very long time, and it also instilled a huge appreciation for this wonderful model that Dinky produced....definitely a classic. About eight or nine years ago, I happened across the Low Loader with Propeller version, and soon added it. I had not thought much about the transformer one until a few years ago, then had considerable trouble finding a nice one. So, to celebrate this occasion, I decided to do a quick photo study of all three, together at last. I apologize for the photos....the three of them are too wide for my current photo setup, so the border partly appears, but I am still dazzled by just how wonderful they are. I think Meccano did a pretty nice job in extending the life of the model, by introducing such different versions.
Regards,
Terry

Really lovely Terry,
Great to see the set together, the Transformer still escapes me.
