The Greatest Show On Earth
Bringing back the childhood magic of fairs and circuses
Roll-up, roll-up for all the fun of the fair!
Traditional travelling fairs and circuses are an integral part of our heritage. Their heyday was that golden postwar age from the 50s to the 70s – and that’s what this evocative 1:76 scale metal model we’ve created represents.
This splendid Carters Tow Truck and Trailer proudly bears the livery of one of the few remaining travelling fairs still plying their trade. Just look at that lovely old Foden cab, and the wonderfully detailed generator load. And as for the trailer, well, let’s just say you’re getting a lot of metal for your money. And at just £1.99 – with FREE p&p – it’s such a small price to pay! Better yet, you’ll receive your model, mounted on a plinth and housed in a special presentation box, accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity and fact file, along with a FREE and authentic Carters Steam Fair poster. It’s all worth £14.99, so you save an amazing £13!
And that's not all. Order today and you’ll be placed on our priority delivery service – each month you will receive the latest in our ‘Greatest Show on Earth’ fairground models collection. Plus, with your next two deliveries, you will also receive some exclusive FREE gifts. Read on to find out more…
More superb models, more incredible giftsAs impressed as you’ll be with your Carters model, just wait until you receive your next delivery – the simply stunning, finely detailed and 100% accurate Burrell Scenic Showman’s Locomotive “Winston Churchill”.
Superbly rendered in 1:76 scale die-cast metal, this replica of a real working engine is worth £14.99 but is yours for just £9.99 (plus £4.99 p&p). Plinth-mounted, boxed and delivered direct to you with a Certificate of Authenticity and fact file, “Winston Churchill” will also arrive with a fascinating DVD, ‘The Story of British Circuses and Fun Fairs’. Worth £9.99, for you it’s FREE!
The next month, we’ll be delighted to send you another classic fairground vehicle model: Harris’s AEC Mammoth Ballast Truck and Trailer, hauling its colourful load of a packed-away fairground ride. At just £14.99 (plus £3.99 p&p), it is excellent value for money. Not only because it comes with a plinth, presentation box and Certificate of Authenticity and fact file, but there’s also a set of 6 exclusive ‘Greatest Show on Earth’ coasters and tin worth £6.99, absolutely FREE! All subsequent issues are £14.99 plus £3.99 p&p.
Revisit a bygone age of wonder and excitementThere’s no point asking why we created this superbly nostalgic series of travelling circus and fairground models. Simply look at them and all those memories of yesteryear come flooding back. The anticipation, knowing that the fair is coming next Bank Holiday, then the excitement of seeing the trucks roll into town with their brightly-painted liveries and multi-coloured lights.
Then there was the thrill of going to the fair. The noise, the rides, the happy, exhilarated faces all around you as you dash for that last seat on the Waltzer. Magic! And what about the circus? Imagine it, real lions and tigers performing just a few feet away. Close your eyes and you can still remember the smell! Or the acrobats, sailing overhead, impossibly agile, a glimpse into another, more exotic world far removed from normal daily life.
They’re still there today, of course, the loud, gaudy fun-fairs and the ‘arty’ Cirque de Whatevers… yet it’s not the same. There’s no grit, no romance. Except here, in this specially-created and completely exclusive celebration of a vanished age of great British entertainment – the ‘Greatest Show on Earth’!
