Hi and welcome to CN Collectables website for Triang Minic Ships, Mountford Model Ships and other toys, books, diecasts, heritage transport magazines and paraphernalia.
Recently listed over the weekend are Panamax cranes and gantries. Taken a while but there they are. Then there are some top ups to the 1st series harbour items.
It is October 18th. The site is working well.
Google Chrome suggests that the site is insecure which is untrue. There is a firewall and other security and as all payments are via third parties such as paypal this is not a worry. However, we bow down to the search engines and a safety certificate and upgrade is being arranged ( has been paid for). It just has to migrate.
We are delighted to announce that we have been appointed sole distributors to trade and retail of 1250 scale Mountford and XAS models.
Recent listings and stock include some Mountford kits too which are now discontinued and some several dozen different Mountford models. There are a few on Special Offer for a limited time. If you fancy one of these grab it now. These are hand made so there is not necessarily a date on which there will be more stock. Also the priority for Mountford is to make new models and keep supplies of the recent releases.What we list is what we have; here and covering the other sites on which we list.
Old and used items we use three categories mint/good, playworn/reasonable and tatty for restoration ie for TLC. Trying to get more old triang harbour items listed.
Some more full hull battleships now listed.
You are welcome to look around and then if you want to make a purchase please register and off you go.
Many of the Triang Minic Ships range are still available except for MOST Container Ships, 2011 type 23s, US Carriers and some tankers. Sometimes we are able to acquire out of stock ships on the secondary market, ie from other collectors or shops. Stocks are diminishing. The Library section is where previous newsletters and articles on Triang Ships are stored. The most recent one in the library is the September 2018 newsletter.
We have used stock of most of the popular harbour accessories such as quay straights, breakwaters, warehouses, oil tanks, customs sheds and cranes. There are 2 categories really; used and very used. If what you want isn’t listed then please email. Time to list is always at a premium.
We only list an item on one of our sites and give it a unique code number. You will find many items which are only on this site. From time to time there are some special offers. There are also a good range of old ships. One of our specialities is the Tender Loving Care category which is for repaint and restoration. Triang ships are amazingly tough. Another category is the 2018 Sale which is a selection of mostly Navy ships with slight faults, usually the printing. I think that the manufacturing process prints the decal and then the bubble almost at the same time so sometimes the ink doesn’t quite dry or the print doesn’t quite take. It’s reasonable to suppose that the other sides are fine.
Recently we have added some more heritage Transport magazines. I am a member of a variety of these and think that it is a good way to spread the word about them by recycling the magazines which they produce.
Sometimes the emails don’t seem to work, if you don’t receive a confirmatory mail of purchase or of despatch please let us know and we will try and fix it.
CN Collectables on Ebay is now into its 18th year now and continues because it is so easy to use in almost every part of the world. We have had customers in 76 countries plus BFPO,AFPO, Britannia Naval College and several ships including the much lamented HMS Illustrious. Our Groovycart shop is still open as it shows up frequently on internet searches. This site is now in its third second year
There is no news on any further Triang releases but we can confirm that Charles is alive and well and we had a long conversation in November 2017 but silence ever since.
