It does not photograph well, but in the metal it's not that bad. They both appear to have had a hard life but still retain some character, some previous owners liked them enough to play them to death. However this aside it is the first model to have 'Mazak' stamped on the bottom and as such is a watershed in the fortunes of the brand. The Capri shares some of its heaviness and lack of accurate detail, but I think this is the beginning of the end. There are some really nice models to come, but this is a signpost to the future.

For 1.50 for the blue one and a few pence fore the bronze one - they fill a slot in the collection, the lower bronze one came 'free' in a mixed lot
