An Arnold tinplate clockwork three funnel liner proved popular when Warwick and Warwick’s Diecast, Model Soldiers and Toys Auction took place this month. In all there were 368 lots for keen bidders to choose from, in this the second auction of 2017.
Once bidding had got started the tinplate liner realised £212, but it was definitely Sci-Fi which ruled the day, with an Eaglemoss Doctor Who figurine collection, totalling 109 models, selling for a massive £737. Traditional Britains did well, too: an Aircraft Series Monoplane (No.434) realised £318 while a Timpo No.1 Arctic Set achieved £100. In the Dinky section, a Guy Warrior Flat Truck (No.265) made £112 and French Dinky Renault Camper No.565 sold for £212. Finally, a Tri-ang Spot-On Land Rover and Trailer (No.308) achieved £165.
