The Specialist Diecast Auction held on Thursday 20th February comprised two private owner collections offering over 460 of superior Diecast and plastic models. The West Yorkshire Collection featured a superb selection of boxed Corgi, Dinky and Spanish Dinky plus some more recent editions such as Polistil, Bburago, Lansdown and Brooklyn to highlight just a few. Mainly boxed, there was an excellent range of TV related vehicles, helicopters and boats featuring Batman, The Saint, Superman, Captain Marvel, Hulk and James Bond. There was also a strong presence of Britains from farm vehicles, implements and buildings to the ever-popular Speedway set, Motorcycles and Wild West. The second portion of the auction was also from one private seller and included a tempting group of Siku trucks, transporters, lorries and emergency vehicles, all boxed and in excellent order.
