The Marc Bannister Collection, a unique collection of limited edition die-cast miniature transport models, today (30 December 2013) provides an update on its progress.
The Mini/MINI car collection retains its pre-eminent status with 327 models. The total size of the Collection now stands at 491 models.
Cataloguing the Collection has proved time consuming and MarcBannister.org will no longer be updated in December 2013. The year end remains on 31 January 2014 and an update on the expanded website will be presented in the Annual Statement 2014 which is due to be released on 27 March 2014.
The Collection notes that the brand name and website rights of the UK’s largest model transport retailer have been acquired by the UK’s largest newsagent. For this reason and a number of other factors, a potential retailing channel has now been delayed indefinitely.
