Bassett Lowke feature, diecast update, cigarette card collection and plenty more! ...
Just a reminder that the July issue of Collectors Gazette is on sale today! One of the highlights is a fascinating feature on the 20th anniversary of the Bassett Lowke Society, including a look back at the group's formation. You can read a sneak peak on the website.
We've also got a run down of some of the best plastic model kits and accessories on the market, including products from Revell, Creative Models and Bachmann. There's also a fantastic opportunity to win two of Revell's 'London Icon' replicas, including a black London taxi and Routemaster bus. You can enter the competition here.
Meanwhile, with the Olympics preparing for the starting gun, David Brown goes through some Games-related memorabilia that has appeared at auctions in the past, including a large collection of Bobby Pearce items. As well as reading David's feature, you can also learn more about Bobby Pearce here on the Collectors Club of Great Britain.
There's also a great interview with Ashley Jones, who has amassed a vast collection of different cigarette and trade cards over the last five years. And, of course, there are the usual Collectors Gazette highlights, including the Diecast Update, Railway Round-up with Richard Wilson, auction news from David Brown, Toy Figure Focus by Mike Blake and the event reports. So, make sure you pick it up in stores today or order it online.
