    I have just spent an enjoyable couple of nights reading through this thread.

    I am lucky enough to have a few TRUX models; Huber roller, Caterpillar grader, armoured D7 and a CMP 15cwt, if I remember correctly. I guess I have several others in their new guises. I would be luckier if I had bought more kits when they were still available!

    Cheers

    Mike could I ask you about the Miltra figures which I think you had for a time - do you know what happened to them?

    I second the wish the Trux list was still in production - never get that field bakery now!

    Thank you Davis and Clive for your kind comments.

    The old Miltra range disappeared long ago, mainly because the moulds wore out and partly because they were dated. The vulcanised rubber moulds for centrifugal casting were expensive to make and only economically viable if large sales are likely. I always liked them because they were not as bulky as many later ranges and they could be bent into shape with a little care.
