Lovey schmitt, shame I'm a little old for one of them, I am nearly the age to drive the real thing!

Keep on the great work!

Well, I guess I'm taller than most frnehc ADULTS from over here in South France, but they are just bent down farmers!

Seeing that I dont fit in the back of a goggo or Nobel, I dont think I will fit in that...

(I mean I can hardly lay down on the whole bench!)

perhaps this is the best place for supposedly replica Heinkel/ Trojan back lights that were made too small !! people who know a lot better are still selling them as " correct "to less informed buyers. they would look great on this scaled down car  ;)

I'm not so sure that it's a microcar Bob.  Some of the lines remind me of a Reliant when you look at it from the back!

Still got a few left I might part with but I am on the last box and I am keeping a load for my own use. It is interesting to see them resold as correct or blaming the source, which in many cases was me as I bulk bought some 400 units miss ordered by a club. I have never described them as original fitment. So many people do not read and digest what is written but immediately make assumptions. Later it turns out I am alleged to have mislead them, nope! They mislead themselves. What do you expect when they were £15 each anyway? Equivalent genuine units are well above £50. Indeed I am about to restore my stash so I have sets ready to put on the cars as they restore and I will be looking well above that for a complete restored original unit - matching Mannheim retail prices. Otherwise there is an appropriate replica available which is close enough for an basic restoration at about £45 unless you can afford a bulk purchase. I prefer to not use them as they are chromed, wrong, not available without numberplate lense, wrong for Heinkels, Tigers and such and the shape is not accurate to the original on the screw hole end. You pays your money and takes your choice. It is unfortunate that the stock of the undersized light was used up prior to the Bamby cars as they would have been perfect.
