Britains Lilliput Vehicle Series
L/7 Farm Display Set
Britains Lilliput Vehicle Series L/7 Farm Set

Issued 1955-1960    'OO/HO' scale

 

In the Lilliput range, Britains issued many of their models in themed sets, particularly figures, animals or farm accessories. L/7 was the only Farm Set to include vehicles and it replaced the earlier set LV/SA.

The vehicles in the Farm Set were

LV/602 Saloon Car

LV/604 Fordson Tractor

LV/605 Milk Float & Horse

LV/606 Tumbrel Cart

Details of the models can be found on their individual pages via the links.

 

The Farm Set is interesting because the vehicles were held in place by cut-outs on card backings instead of the usual string retainers, an unusual method for Britains. On the central panel, however, the animals were strung to the card as normal.

Along the top of the set the various figures for the vehicles, milkman, carter, and tractor driver were included with other farm figures, animals and hurdles. There was also a copy of a Lilliput fold-out Catalogue inside the box and as always the production slip as part of the guarantee.

The box was the standard green paper-covered lidded one, a style which Britains used for several sets, and it had the standard label on the lid. One characteristic of Britains was that they did not name their Sets on the label, but identified them by a white paper strip stuck to one end of the box lid.

 

L/7 Farm Display Set is a scarce item and rare in mint condition.
