We had a Keddies in Colchester. Interesting little run Stefan. Your paperwork and instruction foci are really interesting and not something many collectors focus on or shout about. What fascinates you about them?

Been an product design engineer myself, both the artwork and thought the designers put into how the mechanics behind the vehicles work is fascinating.
