Ford Van purchased today in Asda. The fact you can only get certain colours in Asda could lend it some collectible status in years to come

Matchbox have a correctly scaled one in their lineup ATM, seen it in Poundland.

 

Bought one for my son just yesterday (Poundland, inspired by comments above). They didn't have much that appealed to me other than a green Ford Bronco.


1973 Datsun 1200 B110 2dr; 1980 Laurel 2.4 C230; 1988 Sunny 1.6 LX N13
1992 Camry 2.2GL project car (still on hold, probably just for spares now); 1993 Camry Estate 2.2GL (was daily driver, written-off and awaiting repair)
1996 Carina E 1.8 CD custodian

And a couple of modern Toyotas

To my utter surprise, I managed to coax this from the French:

It contains the usual half arsed mag:

Must have taken them all of half an hour to make. Oh wait, they are French, so it probably took them two weeks.

 

Anyway, here is the model:

However, since one can't live with just an R16, I actually got me two of them.

The real reason for having two of them is that I want to "TX" one, if I ever find the correct wheels.

The Nissan is funky little thing,if it's been painted then it's been done quite well
The small Welly's are sold over here for a couple of lev in most supermarkets,along with some very oddball stuff

I have a 1:18 Otto 16TX with the correct wheels if you wanted to borrow it for 3D scanning and printing purposes.

Do you really believe I don't have one myself?

Good idea, I haven't thought about that.

However, I think there is a set in the upcoming ESCI/Italeri R5 reissue.

The coffin light mk1 Estelle is nice, it's one of those mag partworks, I do hope eventually they do a Garde/Rapid coupe. Abrex are a bit weird these days, saw a photo of a mk2 Fav estate on their website, but no sign of it in their catalogue, and tbh Abrex are getting pricey. Have a couple of bigger shots of the Estelles, plus my Lada collection. My camera doesn't seem to loke taking shots of white models :(

Abrex are currently somewhat defunct to all intents and purposes as the people who made everything for them seem to have shut up shop with financial issues.

Shame, we were the biggest Abrex retailer in the U.K. y'know.

It's not so much that they were pricey, more that they'd spent so long with so much stock heavily reduced that it made the standard releases look expensive when in reality the normal price stuff still sold really well.
