Show us your scale model bicycles - Protar, others

Years back I had a scale model Colnago in metal. Had a working chain, axle wing nuts, operating caliper brakes. Fun stuff to look at. Some Protar kits spotted on the net. Please share your model kits!

Bartali, Raleigh / Panasonic, Colnago, Bianchi / Coppi by Protar
