MODELS BY MR R GILLOW

The following models were produced in the early 1980s by an English collector, Mr R Gillow, of Stockton-on-Tees and although I bought a few then, I thought they were long out of production.

Whilst working on these pages in mid-2006 I spoke to Mr Gillow and the models are, in fact, still available. Details can be obtained from Mr Gillow at 62 Bishopton Road, Stockton-on-Tees, Cleveland, TS19 0AR, UK (I must point out that the prices given are the 1983 prices).

The list below is reproduced pretty much as originally issued in 1983, and contains the original descriptions. Where appropriate I have made a few comments in ITALICS. I do not guarantee that the list is complete. Please note that this document was compiled in June 2006.
