Lesney Matchbox error pieces 2015
or, the oops hall of fame 2015.

These were all submitted to me in 2015 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,

This photo was sent in by Forum member Tony Godsey who no doubt saw several refuse truck pictures with extra wheels trapped inside the cabs that were sent in by other Forum members, Not to be outdone Tony sent in this picture with TWO trapped wheels, Thanks Tony.

Another plastics oops, This time the plastic window unit is missing completely but it does have a piece of sprue which is left over from the window molding, Thanks to Forum member Linus for sharing, Cheers Linus.  photo linusplastic_zpsxspoertv.jpg

This one was sent in by Numi our Lady collector from South Africa, It shows a piece of molten mazac which dripped into the casting when this rare green 30a Prefect was cast, Thanks for sharing Numi, An excellent oops if ever there was one.  photo numicast_zpsufz5hk6n.jpg

Plastics again, But its not missing this time, Just incorrectly installed so the drivers seat faces the ceiling, From Forum member Bob from Ohio, Thanks for sharing Bob.  photo bobohioplastic_zpsiwsq6lby.jpg

The Foden sugar container truck is well known for wheel errors but this one has several different size wheels so was probably assembled after a long pub lunch, It was sent in by Forum member and friend Reg (fixer), Thanks Reg.  photo fixerwheels3_zps2ofc2arp.jpg

Another wheel error but this one is quite attractive as it gives this 37 Coca Cola Bantam the nose down look of a funny car, This one was sent in by Forum member Fintail, Thanks Fintail, Very nice indeed!.  photo fintailwheels_zpskohka0ag.jpg

And this one shows how oopses can even be found in the Matchbox pocket catalogues, The descriptions for the Rolls and the Thomas were assigned to the wrong models, Sent in by that jolly nice chap Kevin, also known as ghosthunter on the forum, Thanks Kevin.  photo ghosty1973 Dealer Catalogue_zpsiomgaqfx.jpg

Its odd that this reversed interior in this Kingsize yellow foden should be sent in by Forum member Yellowfoden, Thanks Yellowfoden, A super error, Thanks for sharing. Or should that be thanks Nedofwolley?.  photo yellowfodeninterior_zpsaztres6n.jpg

Another very strange Ford wrecker. This one has one of the supporting legs missing from the crane boom. Odd but there could be more of them out there, Picture sent in by Forum member Rodger aka Tractorboy, Thanks for sharing Rodger.  photo rodgerpost_zpsvdxsel0l.jpg

Another Ford wrecker with a casting error, This time to the windscreen pillar which we know was not broken as the ends were painted, It was sent in by Simon, Thanks for sharing Simon, Very nice.  photo simon pillar_zpsme72tyka.jpg
