Rare Scale Models Of The Best Of British
Images: Tex Automotive models
Globally renowned for its original specification classic wiper and mirror products, British Motor Heritage (BMH) subsidiary Tex Automotive is now offering an ever-increasing range of enthusiast car parts and accessories, as well as a mouth-watering selection of rare, or in some cases, unique ‘mint and boxed’ model cars.
A collectors’ goldmine, the selection has been amassed over many years by BMH in its role as global licensee for the Austin, Austin-Healey, MG, Morris, Rover, Triumph and Wolseley brands. It comprises everything from one-off prototypes to limited edition runs, all boxed and in mint condition. A selection of the offerings can be found at www.texautomotive.com.
However, it is only a fraction of the total stock, with more items being added to the website all the time; so collectors are advised to make regular visits to the site in order not to miss out on this exciting opportunity.
Currently viewable are gems such as the Kyosho 1/18th scale 1959 Le Mans Triumph TR3S (£41.25 plus VAT, which is around Rs 4,100) and highly detailed Sun Star 1/36th scale RAC Austin Minivan (£55.00 plus VAT, or Rs 5,500).
Also recently uploaded are a splendid selection of the Corgi 1/76th scale Trackside miniatures which are compatible and therefore the perfect complement to ‘00’ gauge model railway layouts. Now rarely obtainable from other sources, these highly collectable items range from individual cars and vans priced at just £3.50 plus VAT (Rs 350) to three-piece sets for a mere £8.50 plus VAT (Rs 850).
The classic car parts and accessories also available at www.texautomotive.com include no end of useful items from EBC replacement brake parts to Samco silicone hoses and fuel caps to Renovo car care products, not to mention affordable all-year-round gifts such as leather driving gloves and branded key fobs.
