Lesney Matchbox error pieces 2016 page 4

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,

Models with mixed wheel treads are not that difficult to find but finding one with mixed colour wheels is rarely seen. this gem is from Mick Bruce's collection, Thanks for sharing Mick.  photo mickbrucewheel1_zpsczz8expr.jpg

 photo ritchiecard3_zpsjaznclss.jpgThis one was sent to me all the way from Hong Kong, This odd blister card has the model attached to the wrong side so it is almost certainly a friday afternoon piece, or a friday after the pub piece. It is from the collection of forum member Ritchie,
thanks for sharing Ritchie.

Another example of a wheel not getting its fair share of the hot foil chrome plate, This is another one from the collection of Steve (matchboxkiwi) from the forum,
Thanks for sharing Steve.

Another extra lable error from the incredible oops collection of downunder and then some Steve (matchboxkiwi). Amazing. Simply amazing. Thanks for sharing Steve,  photo matchboxkiwilable2_zpswvrdhsah.jpg

The front wheel of this Mercury Cougar is missing its chrome metal hub cap, Although its not a new error it is something that we don't come across very often, It is from the collection of that man Jason Roper,
Nice one Jason, Thanks for sharing.

This one was sent in by forum member Dave (leonty24), It is more of a disaster area than an oops as it not only has the interior missing and also the plastic suspension strip but I'm pretty sure the baseplate is fitted the wrong way around as well. Awesome!.
thanks for sharing Dave.

While we are on the subject of bonkers buggies take a look at this one, It has a casting hole in the rear of the bodywork, And because there is no damage to the paint we know the hole was in the casting before the paint went on,
Once again the credit for this one goes to Steve (matchboxkiwi).
Thanks Steve.
