Title: BSA Diecast Model
Post by: LynnLegend on 28.12. 2017 16:47
Hello all,

I'd like to buy my little boy a diecast bsa model, but struggling to find anything suitable. I had previously bought him a model gold star, but it was mostly plastic and he smashed it to pieces in about 3 minutes (as 2 year olds tend to do).

I can find plenty of sidecar models, but that's not what I'm looking for.

Welcome any help in this! Doesn't have to be A7/10.

Sam.

 *smile*

maybe a bit too much for a 2 year old?

Thanks Harvey, The top one is very similar to the one he smashed to pieces - the "Atlas" brand are mostly plastic, which would be fine if he wasn't such a heavy handed little sh...

And the second link looks much more like what I want... think it might be a hard sell to the Mrs though  *fight*

These things are not really toys.

These things are not really toys.

Everything's a toy to a 2 year old... scissors, matches, etc etc...
