Mystery items from Beatties
A couple of additions to my collection of stuff from the defunct chain of model shops, Beatties, have me stumped. What are they?
On the left the hollow tubes are 11mm long and 2mm in diameter along most of the length.
The springs are 10mm along the top edge and 9mm on the legs.
Being a general model shop they could be railway or R/C car parts but I can't see what. Suggestions welcome. I will say that they represented excellent investments for someone. I paid 99p for each packet including postage on eBay, so quite a return!
