I have mentioned them once or twice over the years in passing, invariably dropping the d I fear and writing them 'Lunby', and a real departure for the blog, but I saw this in a charity shop (Age UK, here in Fleet) the other day, and the lady kindly let me photograph it for the blog.
My interest comes via the Motoplay series from Barton, elements of which were carried/copied by both Blue Box and Lucky (among others) and are still available via Hobbys/Hobbies Annual, as they were always HK imports - you'll know the die-cast petrol pumps as they turn-up all the time in job-lots.
Barton were also makers of wooden farm buildings and such like, but today we're looking at something I know little about - so it's either enjoy the pictures or come back tomorrow and hope there's something a little more war-like for you!
Although . . . it would look good in a throne-room with a bunch of Vikings eating meat off the bone and drunkenly spilling mead - "Oi, watch the bearskin Olaf, it stains easy!"
