I love retro displays like that, brings back lots of good memories.  :)
That C5 looks like it's seen far better days though!  :(

There is stuff in there  i had forgotten all about.

That C5 needs some TLC, it was looking a bit sad there buried under all that other stuff.

Yeah, sometimes you see C5s crop up on ebay which are suffering from the same problem as this one - where they look like they've been stored badly for a long period of time causing the front fairing to be bent downwards.
I assume this can be corrected by forcing it back the other way and applying heat but fortunately it's not a problem I've had to tackle!

Never mind the C5 with the missed placed indicator, is that a mk2 Raleigh Chopper & two Grifters next to it.

Don't tell BooBoo & GrifterMike they will be planning a robbery for them ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

That is a toy museum? As it looks like from here these are just pictures of my childrens room!  :o

Sorry for being off-topic here, but ScubaChris, I have a question for you.
I noticed you quote under your messages,
"A journey of a thousand light-years begins with a single step." ~ Confucius

Did they have knowledge of Lightyears 500 B.C. in China?

just wandering. ;)

Frank,
The explanation is printed straight after the word 'Confucius'...

"(extended 13 orders of magnitude)"  ;)

It's a quote from an astronomy book, yes I know I'm a geek  :D
