A bridge too far...

Postby Thundershot » 03 May 2010 17:53

Hi all,
What with all this V.A.M. stuff being posted recently & it being such miserable weather outside, I dug this beast out of the loft for a bit of a play...

Sorry for the poor focus, originally purchased @ a car-boot sale,I've had this since childhood & like all good self assembly flat pack furniture, it's missing one piece...the toys aren't the only 70's vintage stuff here...so are the carpets & sofa, they really made stuff to last back in the day :lol:

Thanks for looking, hope it's of interest

Thanks Andy, it should have another (4th) post for the barrier to be able close on @ the t'other end properly, dispite posing an Action man sized security risk, it's not a massive problem display wise.

Cool bridge.

The sofa isn't vintage, it's just old, but don't tell your nana....

Thanks Squaddie,
The bridge was made by Cherilea, more famous for producing the German motorcycle & sidecar amungst many other Action man sized vehicles...the jeep wasn't too expensive around the £50 mark all in all, one of them rare occasions that I had a bit of spare cash to invest in something less than sensible.
