Puma

This is my Puma battalion. I have collected them for 30 years.
It takes a lot of dedication to collect this many of the same Roco.
Some I got new, some I got used. Still, all needed work.
I am planning on a review and upgrade of the whole battalion soon.
I do that once in a while, make sure all the wheels turn, the spare tires are in place, and touch up the paint jobs.

So nice! Bunkermeister, I wished they still made that model. Now they reduced their range so much and old models are no longer made... How much did you pay for all those little gem back then?

Bunkermeister:
Good LORD, that is one HELLUVA collection.
I am truly impressed.

Nicely done.

(( I think those RoCo PUMAS originally went for $.39 or $.49))

AJ, I purchased them over a period of about 30 years, some new, some used. They probably averaged a dollar each.

Yes, G, they were less than fifty cents when I started with them, they are some of my oldest Rocos.
