The Avengers Gift Set 40

With more great Gift Set 40 boxes I have been able to make up another 4 Avengers Gift Sets, three with a red Bentley and one with a green one. Most have almost totally original components apart from the umbrellas and one or two Emmas. They are pretty much indistinguishable from the originals though so no-one should be too worried about that.

It's quite difficult to find both cars now in first class condition. The Bentleys are easier as, although they usually have more things missing or broken, they can be repaired without any obvious sign of interference. A Lotus with a broken screen or poor paintwork, though, cannot really be used in original sets. I shall be making some more sets with repainted Lotuses in white or silver-blue to make best use of those less than perfect models and then, as I have mentioned before, I will be looking at a totally fresh set featuring the later Bentleys and Vitesse Lotus. That should be much cheaper to buy too. For now, though, these original sets can be bought for £250 - £300 each.
