Gray Miniature 500 - Thanks to CRPF
« on: November 02, 2017, 06:50:18 PM »
Several years ago I posted a photo of my miniature 500 set collection. I noted that I had every color except the dark gray. A couple weeks ago I received an email from a collector that referenced the posting. He had an extra dark gray that he sent to me.

Nice! Great people here!

I also need a Dark Gray, Med Blue & Rose Beige to complete my color mini 500 collection.

It definitely is the greatest forum ever! :)

Now, now, Harry, don't try dropping hints like Chuck did. You may not get as lucky... ;D ;)

All kidding aside, just keep looking, and look especially hard at pen holders, music boxes, and other more novelty versions. My Med Blue was disguised as a pen holder, and I converted it to a regular mini 500. The fingerwheel was heavily damaged, and is now missing, so I'll have to make a new one using some clear resin.

Thanks. I am always looking. I had a damaged fingerwheel on one also. I bought a lot of 3 or 4 off eBay and switched the fingerwheel from one I did not need.

I need a FULL SET! (Preferably AEs) and would be nice if the worked!
