Real Estate - anyone remember these?

In July 1973 Minifigs announced a line of vacuum formed buildings. While I remember having a vac formed building about that time you had to cut out four walls and a roof and glue them together, so it wasn't a Minifigs one.

They probably don't qualify as being much to do with S Range, but I thought they would make an interesting post. I wonder if any have survived?

The two adverts are from Almark Modelworld magazine, the first the "teaser" from July 1973 and the second the first pictures, from August 1973.

You should try emailing the guys at Minifgs UK - they may still have some - or may be even the old moulds! :o)

Thanks for the suggestion Steve - have done this and will post again if anything interesting emerges...
