Window Shopping for Collectibles, kind of…

Musings By Joschik
Christian obsesses over collectibles, antiques and toys more than the average person, but (he believes) in a productive way. Documenting collectibles has been a passion since working on a book about his favorite childhood toys from Timpo 41 years ago.



I have happened this to me now so often that I thought I share this last instance and invite you to show your finds!  Walking on the street I see some collectibles in a window, here my most recent experience in Kopenhagen, Denmark  –


To the chagrin of my wife, I knocked on the window and chatted to the owner.  These were the models she kept from her late husband’s collection and she was pleased that I liked them.  We had a nice chat and both parted with a smile. If you want to do the same they are close to Opera House!

Do you recognize any?  If so name one (1) but not more than one (1) in the Comments (i.e. let other people also feel knowledgeable…. 😉  ).

And if you have a similar experience please go ahead and share it!

I may have walked by there before – years ago! Some of those are easy, but the PV444 is a stumper! (The black Volvo) It’s not detailed enough for the new Atlas partworks and it is not the old Vilmer. Tekno made the PV544, so that leaves a white metal kit like Somerville! My best guess!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
