One of the largest privately held collections of Sci Fi and military toys, as well as militaria and books on the same subject goes under the hammer
Cornel Fleming was a man of many facets; Doctor, husband, father, friend and soldier. But throughout his life, the one constant, was that he was a collector. His love of all things Science Fiction and military led him to build “The Dr Cornel Fleming Collection”.
As one of the largest privately held collections of Sci Fi and military toys, as well as militaria and books on the same subject, this collection chronicles not just his life, but the changes that occurred during it.
It was always known that his collection would be shared with the world and the idea of this was something he always liked – that his passion, his attention to detail and the sheer size of the collection would eventually be shared with the wider collecting community. For some, items will complete their set. For others, it may be just the start of catching the auction or collecting bug.
The Dr Cornel Fleming collection sale takes place over three days in November at Vectis Auctions, with Day 1 being predominantly TV and film related, Day 2 features further TV related and tinplate, while Day 3 is largely military vehicles.
The sale features a large collection of Star Trek items, Dr Who Dalek models, vintage Transformers and other robot vehicles plus Action Force Action Man, He-Man, Gerry Anderson vehicles, Star Wars, Major Matt Mason, Madelman vehicles and figures plus Corgi and Dinky diecast vehicles.
There is a large selection of interesting items within these three days and at every collecting level there will be something for everyone. For further information visit www.vectis.co.uk
