Lucky find!

Postby btaylor » Tue Mar 01, 2016 8:11 am

Got these two in an auction yesterday. Pretty rare, and in great condition. They look to be the 1966 release, but no later than 1969. The Watson is worth doing a mold from I think.Image

Nice scores. If you do decide to cast it...I won't object :)

Very cool finds Bob. Any Indy car is worth casting. Looks like a winner.

I really like the Watson. Good idea to make a cast of it.

Nice cars.
Both Scalextric, made in their Hong-Kong factory. Fairly common in the UK. Repro decals are still available.

I have been restoring a couple of the Watsons and am short a couple of the exhausts.
Any clues on where I might find a couple? Will there be casts of those? As mentioned the decals are available but no pipes.
Great condition, great cars.
