    Seemed fitting to haul away the remnants of 2020, without doubt one of the worst years I can remember.

    I know enough about Anguplas to get myself into trouble, so knowledgeable correction as always is welcome. 1/87 scale, at least the models I've seen, and I believe this company was in Spain. To my knowledge they are no longer in operation, but they did make a nice series of models nicely detailed for the size with a focus on European makes.

    I know nothing of Sava Basura, this came in a lot but the astonishing detail leaves me to appreciate this example. I don't know if the weathering is factory, but it sure adds a good bit of realism.

    The image file limits have been reset. Upper limits now are 100,000 when we have some images that exceed 5,000,000. I've set the pixels for no more than 1000 across the longest side, so if you resize to that all should be well. (The limits are larger than what I typically use, and my images turn out just fine, so I know it shouldn't be a problem)

    Thank you for your understanding.

    Aguplas models were made in Spain - most of their boxes listed the scale as 1/86th. They are long gone - Eko "copied" many of their models. They do suffer from warpage and their own version of zinc pest - perhaps should call it plastic pest. Most of the cars came with a chrome base that had some weight to it. They were one of the early firms to offer miniature versions of the Edsel. Like the model you have, Wes, they came in a nice little, detailed box. While I know Eko models were sold in the US I am not sure about Angulplas - I do not recall ever seeing them in hobby shops back in the days when I was adding lots of stuff to my HO train layout. Most of the ones in my collection came from the late Dr. Ed Force and other European sources.
