Re: Reproduction octogonal Mutoscope at Mctears

Re: Temple’s Penny Arcade Trailer Project

That is stunning Paul, you must be delighted with it.
A true credit to your dedication.
I'd be astonished to hear if you got much change out of a crisp £50 note for that lot and no mistake!

Re: Novelty Merchantman Crane

That's a bit of a "How long's a piece of string set of questions there" How much do you think would be a good price ... It's all down to: - How much it'd be worth to you.

Re: Brooklands Racer

I was offered this machine (I remember the damage) in the early 90s for £150.
