So Swordheads, I have emerged once more from a haze of nasal spray and ibuprofin to attend to more serious matters and carry on the blogiversary for a while. Not sure if I'm hallucintaing but I've just seen at least a couple of hundred scooters drive past the front window (on the road). I didn't know their were still Mods on scooters! Does that mean theirs still Rockers too?
Anyway, to the matter at hand. You'll remember a while ago that blog reader and ace designer Ferryman introduced us to his custom boxed JR21 Thunderbird 7 (pic tured in the top group shot), well now we have a real blog exclusive, which you cannot get anywhere else. Ferryman has created another masterpiece: a custom boxed JR21 Thunderbird Excavator. Take a look at all the pictures above and you'll agree its a real beauty and sits fantastically well with other JR21 toys as in the top shot. Ferryman is offering 5 of these exclusives to blog readers at just £40 each (inc.UK P&P) and once they're gone that's it!
The star features of this exclusive toy are:
*Limited edition of 5
*The Excavator model kit is the IMAI 1992 issue and will be supplied UNMADE in its original box (see bottom picture). It is the bigger version of the kit measuring just over 20 cm long and features rubber tracks and pivoting arms (non-motorized kit). YOU WILL NEED TO MAKE THE MODEL YOURSELF!**
*The custom JR21 boxes will be supplied fully made up and finished (that's just the BOX), being printed at 2880 dpi from Ferryman's Epson printer.
*The price is £40 each, which is incredible value. This includes Postage and Packing in the UK. Overseas buyers will have to pay extra shipping at cost (ask Ferryman for this).
*Email me here to register your interest in purchasing one of these exclusive kits and I will pass your details onto Ferryman, who will then contact you direct. Remember that this is a birthday blogsclusive and limited to 5 only!
**Ferryman's finished Excavator kit has been slightly modified in a few areas to enhance the end result. The original kit way back was motorized but these are unavailable really. The 1992 non-motorized issue kit has a few holes in the base and body where the gears and switch originally protruded. Ferryman has filled or covered these holes, which is relatively simple to do and enhances the finished biult-up toy model.
