A fine collection there 155. I particularly like your Majorettes and the Ford Transcontinental transporter with 1/36 scale cars.

In episode 4, Corgi 1/36 models seem to have been finding me in recent years (like the last 20 or so) without any real effort on my part.  I was much too old to have them as toys in my youth, simply because they didn't exist until I was 20 (ish).  There are some that didn't make it into this pic...

attachicon.gifCamdump4 030.jpg

Film and television cars account for a chunk of my collection, as do models of cars I've owned; sadly I think most of them are still in boxes in my lockup.  As you can see, I'm not exactly well-endowed with display space!

These have been some violently-edited highlights.  I hope you've enjoyed them.

Nice fleet there Eddy

My collection is pretty awful these days. I did get some pretty tasty 1/24 stuff earlier this year from A60rod and still have some vaguely interesting other stuff,but it's spread over England and Scotland now. And in attics....
Think the last one I bought was a boxed Norev Jet cars Citroen BX.

 

 

I think I still have a few proper AS diecasts. A lion cars Vauxhall Astramax, a Gama Audi V8, various Bburagos, including an R14 and Matra Bagheera. 

 

i seriously can't remember what I have now.


Buying and driving Euro shit since 2016.

You know that 1/24 scale Hachette Auto Vintage partworks I'm collecting.

 

Well, I found out that Salvat tested an analog series in Brazil.

37643631271_8874107490_b.jpg

 

 

Well, using the well established Junknetwork, I managed to get them all!

 

 

The weird T1/T2 hybrid they made in Brazil:

One of the best VW Beetle models I've seen:

And lastly, the Chevrolet Opala:

37643625061_a2cf5504f9_b.jpg

 

 

 

Like many Brazilian collectors, I ardently hope this series will be released.

Imagine 50 to 60 models from a country with an impeccable track record of Shite.

Theyre my favourite too but I have to wait until my Facebook contacts get some in as they are too dear on ebay.

I recently got the Volvo 245, Fiat Ritmo, Renault 5 GT Turbo and Ford Transit MK3. Love them!

Got the Megane today. These old Vitesse pieces are well detailed but the crude opening doors are bizarre for a so called collector's model.

Was in aTK Max today and as usual had a butchers in the toy bit, lots of Welly VWs and many Lamborghini models, but also these;
image.jpeg
As you can see Oxford 1:43 Vectras! There were two and they're £7.99, I hid them at the back of the shelf, as all Vauxhalls are shit and I don't want one. But I did wonder if any VX perv would want one, don't know if they're rare or not.
Anyway I can always call back in if anybody wants me to get one and chuck it in the post.

Gentlemen, SOLD
In the process of moving house I have unearthed a box of old Husky, Corgi Junior, Matchbox and other Unknown makes of vehicle.
As I am not in need of transporting them to the new abode, would anyone of this fine establishment be interested in the lot before they go on the bay of e.

Most have some defect or another and/or have Ben painted at some stage. Therefore I realise I am not going to be able to retire to the sun on the proceeds of these. I don't think they will even reach my petrol money to my new house 15 miles away.

I would prefer pick up but if you would like them posted it will be at cost. It may take a few days to do so as I am in the middle of the move.

Any takers?

PS collection from Lincoln.
SOLD
