Ever since I emerged from my Dark Ages, I have regretted selling my Classic Space sets as a teenager, just before going to University. I used to keep them very well and I’m sure that they would still be in great condition if I had only put them away in a box somewhere. Hey ho.
But it has meant that I have been keeping an eye open on eBay to replace some of my favourite sets. I’m not sure I ever owned the famed 928 (it was a big set) but I definitely had 918 and I recently found this specimen for a reasonable price.
The bricks are in decent condition – although I suspect one or two may be bley rather than vintage old light grey. Benny’s red buddy has a broken chinstrap! But it doesn’t really show that much, and at least the gold on his chest print is still in evidence.
The set arrived in a made up condition, parts of it are a bit dusty so I think I will carefully dismantle it and give the pieces a gentle wash. Then it will look as good as new! 918 Has Landed!
