Britains Lilliput World Vehicle Series
LV/SA Vehicle Set
Issued 1950-1956 'OO/HO' scale (1:76)
Britains regularly issued their models in Sets and at the launch of the Lilliput World Series, this boxed Set of models was produced. It contained the first six models in the Lilliput Series:
Details of all the models included can be found on their own pages.
They were all presented unboxed strung to a base card including the figures of the Tractor driver, the milkman and the carter of the Tumbrel Cart. In some later Sets, the backing card carried the 'W Britains' trade mark.
The colours and wheels of the models in each Set varied, particularly the cars, but there was not much variation possible with the Milk Float, Tumbrel Cart or Tractor. The Articulated Lorry seems often to have been the red variation.
The box was a green lidded one with a large paper label on the lid giving details of the items inside and the name of the manufacturer, W.Horton (Toys & Games) Ltd. who made them under licence from Britains. As with all Britains boxed models, a paper slip providing the production number was included as part of the quality guarantee.
Set LV/SA (which stood for 'Lilliput Vehicles/Set A') is not hard to find but more difficult to collect in mint condition.
