Hopefully I can find some stock cars to go with it sometime.


I like these - rockets were meant to rival hot wheels red lines. Unlike hot wheels they do not dissolve with zinc pest. I have quite a few.

Quick resto of Corgi Mini. Have attempted a few this week, this was the only one the paint chose to stick to...

Right, I haven't had much luck disposing of stuff here before but let's have another go. I just unearthed a box full of diecast junkyard fodder which will be going in the bin unless anybody here wants it.

 

These have all been repainted, badly, by a hamfisted pre-teen me, some are missing parts, most have had their rivets drilled and bases removed. Some are better than others but all are restoration/parts.

 

Obviously I don't want proper money for them but a contribution towards postage/packing/my time would be appreciated. I really CBA packing up loads of individual bits and would prefer to sell in bulk, but shout if there is anything you would like.

 

Sorry for poor pics

Oh I remember the Technocrats!  They were a comic strip used in Corgi advertising in the early 70s.  The clean-cut hero type was called Zak, I think.

 

Nice find :)

Ive got that DS and I also had the Neoplan. When I was a kid I had a friend who used to go to Switzerland every summer and he would bring me back a model car. I no longer have the bus but I do have the first car he ever brought me back, a Wiking 1/87 split window Beetle in PTT livery. At the time I had never seen a midel car so small and accurately made and immediately loved it. Im glad I still have it.
