Chris Derbyshire runs us through the history of Sunbeam Talbot 10 model cars.

10 Saloon

Lansdowne (UK) Ref no LDM 46 1:43 scale handbuilt white metal

This was the very first model ever made of a Talbot 10 and was first released in 2005.

After much consultation with Talbot 10 expert Ruud Lem a model of a 1945 saloon version was chosen. The first production run was of 600 and if required another run would be made in the same colour.

For the real collector one to look out for is the early boxes had a 1948 date on the label for the first 100 models only, before being changed to 1945.
