I'm sure there's far better-quality models of this out there, but I had to have this one (Matchbox Yesteryear) when I first saw it long ago.  IMO, lots of cham!

Steamers in 1/43 are rare birds!  Here's a larger Revell Highway Pioneers Stanley from a few years back.

Sorry for its poor condition.  This dates to the early 1950's and shows it!  

(LATER) Just found another, over in my RAMI gathering, an 1876 Mancelle Amedee Bollee built by the first Amadee steam car builder.  Father and son shared the same name.

In 1878 Amédée père designed the La Mancelle, which is regarded as the first automobile to be put into series production, 50 being manufactured in all. It possessed such (for the period) advanced features as rear-wheel drive (via shaft to the differential and then via chain to the rear wheels) and independent suspension on all four wheels. The original vehicle is preserved in the collection of the Musée de l'Automobile de la Sarthe.  The RAMI (R.A.M.I. by J.M.K.) models were produced in France and exported to the United States in the 1970's.  They tend to be somewhat smaller than 1/43.

(later)  One more, this one over in my little Disney collection, another Stanley Steamer, but with an oversized driver that you may recognize.

Well, here's one.   A painted and detailed Danbury Mint pewter 1909 Stanley Steamer with Q Tip steam.

I had forgotten that one, Harv.  And when I found it in a case, the little folks here were having fun with it!

Christopher Moroni showed this charming steamer, I agree.

This one has a bit different livery but is also charming.

@stewil Outstanding collection that revealed a few models I've never seen. THANK YOU very much! My favorite by far, is Cugnot's 1769 Fadier (a model I featured here a few weeks back).  I hope to someday find or build a larger scale version. I'm aware of the 1/32 French made model kit released about 59 years ago but I'd like 1/18 or larger.

Along with Brumm's is my ultra-rare Richard Feil's, handmade brass & pewter replica created in 1980 (pardon the dust).

Here is another one that got smashed in shipping.  It's yours, if anyone wants it for free!  Not steam, but 2 horse power - the notes say "large horse" power. 😆
