Readers Comment from Jim McLachlan

Jim McLachlan posted this comment on Facebook when he heard of Vic Davey’s passing. Jim is an authority on Volkswagen Models who ran the Volkswagen Model Club for many years. 

So sad to hear that Vic has passed away. He was a friend and was also involved with the Volkswagen Model Club that I used to run. When Vic was in Hong Kong I was lucky to add some very interesting models to my collection that he supplied. Back in 1980 he even managed to do a deal with Playart in Hong Kong to supply the club with a batch of VW Beetle models which we used for a club model.
