GOT MYSELF A LITTLE TREAT.
« on: May 17, 2016, 10:58:44 pm »

I will be the proud owner of a diecast Ertl Texaco Fire boat.


These are common in America but not so much over here and they can go for silly prices-well I saw it and got it brand new for 9.


It is also a money bank and it will look great in the mancave.

I probably will do nothing to it, being diecast and a money box and first in the series I will just admire it  :D


Glad you like the little tug, have you had it in the bath yet?

Only one I have at the moment, mine hasn't arrived yet. Is the length is 9 inch long. As a shelf sitter it is rather nice.


The red box version is for the European market and has a red hull instead of the one like mine which is black.
