Large stocks passed down the line to the Watford Model Supply Co. in 1971.
“Putred” and “Happee Dracow” are nodding toys that, if properly balanced, will nod unaided for some considerable time, once started.
This is one of the few Micromodels that has signed wrapper artwork: G.O. Partridge.
One presumes that the genesis of the model was a visit to Heighway’s premises by pin striped officialdom, as the figure carries a writ in its left hand pocket.
Micromodels London has also published this model.
