Hi and welcome to CN Collectables website for Triang Minic Ships and other toys, books and paraphernalia.
You are welcome to look around and then if you want to make a purchase please register and off you go.
Most of the Triang Minic Ships range are still generally available with the exceptions of some Container Ships, 2011 type 23s, US Carriers and most tankers. Stocks are diminishing and I plan to have a sold out stocklist in the library. The Library section is where previous newsletters and articles on Triang Ships are stored. The most recent one is the October newsletter which will be sent out soon.
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.
This month there is are many new listings on the site as we try and catch up with ourselves. 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 2017 Sale which is mostly 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.
The next section to be developed is the 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 magazineswhich 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 has been on Ebay for 17 years now and continues because it is so easy to use in almost every part of the world. Our Groovycart shop is still open as it shows up frequently on internet searches.
There is no news on any further Triang releases.
with very best wishes
Clive and Dave
