Lesney Matchbox error pieces 2016 page 3

These were all submitted to me in 2016 and are shown here in no particular order, Most are from Forum Members with a few borrowed from ebay and elswhere, These could not have been compiled without your help so a big thank you to all of you that submitted the photos,

A very cool error, firstly because its a Splitty and secondly because it has the side doors fitted the wrong way around, My guess is the worker that assembled it was having a little bit of fun, Or was simply trying to ease the monotony of factory work.

If I remember correctly we showed a couple of Opel errors like this last year, the windscreen pillar has failed to cast which we can tell by the full paint covering of the 'broken' ends. This one is from the collection of andreas leue,
Thanks for sharing Andreas.

And now for a fairly unusual tampo error, this U.S. Mail Jeep has the tampo applied to the windscreen and partly to the bonnet, as can be seen by the accompanying model the tampo should be to the bonnet only.
Another one from the collection of steve (matchboxkiwi), Thanks for sharing Steve.

An E type Jaguar with mixed tyre tread patterns front and rear is not a variation you come across every day. This one is owned by forum member lee (lee@kai76), Thanks for sharing Lee.  photo leekaiwheels1_zpsnkfq9pli.jpg

This one is fitted with five slot mags at the rear and four arch wheels at the front. It is owned by Alwin Van Hattem, Thanks for sharing Alwin.  photo alwinvhwheels1_zps9yfmbc6v.jpg

It is always nice to see a mint and sealed up blister pack containing an untouched error piece like this hard to find Dodge Dumper truck which is missing its front wheels and axle. It is yet another one from Steves collection (matchboxkiwi), Thanks again Steve.  photo matchboxkiwiwheels5_zpsq1uxt0ce.jpg

This one is probably a 'Dad fixed it' custom rather than a factory produced error but I think it deserves to be shown here, It is from miller of the forums collection, Thanks for sharing Miller  photo millercrane_zpslthtm3qr.jpg
