Blog Anniversary, February 11th 2013.

TUGS TV Models no longer for sale!

We've had feedback from Auction Bay regarding the sale of the TUGS models, and have been informed that they have been sold off as a whole collection, not individual.

In a reply from Mr Cowan regarding one of the TUGS characters, he replied to us with the following message.

"Our client has just accepted an offer for the entire collection of Tugs models and consequently they are no longer available for sale.

Thank you for your interest.

Fergie Cowan"

We thank Mr Cowan for replying to our inquiries about the TUGS characters, and are glad to see that they are now safely together as a whole collection.

Some may be disappointed with the outcome, but, as a whole collection, in time the models will be worth much more, and with some restoration and tlc, look even better than they do at present.
