I'm a one legend collector, however over the last few months I've been lucky to pick up a couple of gorgeous little Callops. I told Alistair that I was thinking of putting a colour run together, and he found the two Ploppy models at the Expo for me. I'm going to save a spot for these four lures in my collection. I think they'll look great under a bit of light. The Callops certainly have a more golden tinge as opposed to the caramel on the Ploppy models, but it's pretty close. Can't say I'll have much luck finding anything else in this colour pattern (it appears to be very common on these four lures, however that looks to be about the end of it apart from a couple of rarer models) but you never know. As far as I can tell the Ploppy eyes are around the same time as the early Gower era eyes on the Callops. If more experienced Newell collectors could confirm this for me it would be much appreciated.

The more I read about Peter, the more respect and admiration I have for him, so I see it as fitting to have a few examples of his work on display.





Cheers,

Danny

Paul, awesome colours and patterns there, and a nicely crafted display case too. Thanks for the link.

Steiny hopefully that's the limit. Just a nice little tribute. I've been strong so far and passed on a lot of rarer Newells that I've come across. Can't collect them all. Or can I? Hmmmmm......

Cheers,

Danny.
