All That Glisters Is Not Gold...A Good Deal Of It Is Leica

on October 05, 2014

Well, you do, don't you. You look. Even though you know it is just a luxury...

Early Leica camera - modelled in scale out of brass and gold-plated. Delightful in all the details.

Not for taking pictures, of course. For show. And we love it - we're toy collectors here and this is just soooo good.

Now if Chinese diecast model manufacturers would make this sort of thing...but of all different sorts of cameras. They would fly off the shelves. Who knows - one of the Japanese plastic model firms makes scale model school desks and folding chairs, so could little cameras be harder to do?
