This shopping site is dedicated to my brother Tom E. Friesen. It was his dying wish, and he reminded me from time to time that I was to sell his collections of diecast models and to see that his two daughters got this as their inheritance.
Category index pages will show up here, when ready, and Individual sales pages are coming up again now, for these models... but here is what to expect.
Because Tom was a trained farm machinery mechanic before he ended up in a wheelchair, he was especially keen to collect these models. At that time he didn't know yet that collectors prefer to have the models in their original packaging. So in a sense these also fall in the Toys category, but these do make up quite a large number of models.
These are models that he referred to as his Favourites. Again, mostly they are unboxed, so they will have lower prices than the boxed or closed packaged models.
These are the loose models and sometimes appearing more used than most of the models, so I am classifying them as TOYS, and marking them down quite low.
Tom almost papered the walls of his apartment with these small collector models in sealed hangers. He liked the Johnny Lightning models best, and had MANY! So they get a separate sub-index. The other brands of Collector's Hangers are found right here.
These were special tanker trucks with custom logos made for certain companies when they were celebrating special events and wanted to sell branded models totheir customers, or give them as special awards to their best employees. Because they were often limited editions they have become prize collector's items. Tom had just a few of them.
More Categories to Come! - We shall get to boxed muscle cars of a larger scale, (some in plexiglass cases). Watch for lots of Mustangs and Corvettes, in various colours and years. Also some big - really big trucks and tanker trucks!
