This arrived today and I'm fairly pleased with it
Not seen before in 1/18 and is mint condition apart from a set of the spotlights need rebuilding
Not a fan of Otto as they don't open up but the detail of the car is very good
Need to find out if there is an aerial missing too....

Mot only just out on that, low miles as well.

I didn't even know Majorette did a 406, at all!  Although, logically, of course they would.  I need to find a couple of those, I think.

What now?
I've just stripped 60 odd years of paint from this, one of my Dad's old Dinkys. I bought a couple of Poundshop aerosols at the same time as the fake Nitromors. Can I just blow it over with topcoat or should I prime it? I don't want to much paint on it and lose detail. I'm even thinking about striping them all( box of about 20) and just laquering and buying some tyres off eBay, saying that, what's the worse that can happen if I just leave it bare?
I'm only doing this because of generations of abuse and childish repaints by my Dad, me and my brothers, cousins, nephews and nieces. I feel guilty cleaning them up and putting them in a cabinet instead of being played with and kept in a scruffy cardboard box in my Grandma's kitchen.

Know the feeling.......Despite having a T25 I hate the whole Dub scene.

 

Doesn't stop me devoting a chunk of cabinet space, though.....

Primer it, otherwise you may get flaking issues very quickly as the paint doean't bond to the metal, if you leave the metal bare, it will oxidise very quickly

A light blow over with primer should be enough.

I have the same model which was my dad's and its the only one he didnt repaint. The othets he did and my grandpa worked in the shipyards so you can guess the sort of paint he was given to use and why I have no inclination to restore them!

You could try just polishing that casting.
I did this using a Drexel and some autosol.

I think that old ford would look really good done like that.

A recent resto.

Matchbox Mk1 Mondeo.
Had the most awful wheels,thick blue paint and racing decals on it.
I could hardly tell what it was when I found it in a box of random diecast at a car boot sale recently.

Stripping the paint off revealed a lot of good detail.
So a few light coats of paint and some 70's superfast wheels later it looks fairly decent :)
