1960s and 70s glued, LEGO factory produced shop window display items
It's just great when you get a bit of luck come your way isn't it. Amongst other vintage LEGO I collect glued, LEGO factory made shop window display models. I could not believe this find so I had to share with you, I hope that's OK. I never expected to even see another of these aircraft carrier models, especially as LEGO were so anti war machines back in the early/mid 1960's (when this model was made) and then last week I turned my laptop on and found on ebay UK with 25 minutes to end of auction a second copy. It needs some restoration as the previous owner somewhere during its life has done there own modifications but I am thrilled to own it. The LEGO logo was originally rectangular (as can be seen by the glue residue) but on my first model I made some oval logo out of broken flags but this time I plan to make some in the correct shape. The only major difference in construction is the insertion of the red and yellow bricks in non visible areas to I guess make construction easier on the modellers work bench. Best wishes, Chris. Ps. IF ANYONE OUT THERE HAS ANY GLUED SHOP DISPLAY MODELS REGARDLESS OF CONDITION FROM THE 1960's/1970's PLEASE MESSAGE ME. https://www.flickr.com/photos/131944227@N06/
