Finally got some glass shelves into the shallow drawers to display some of the Oxford/Cararama models.

Slightly rough n' ready, but only for my own amusement. Glass frontage still to go on, then wall mounting. Planning on doing the same again for a few of the 1/43 models.

A bit like the old Mercury station wagon they did in the early 70’s that had 2 dogs in the back.

It's been a while since I inflicted my model purchases on you so here are a few recent ones. I do have some more stuff of the commercial vehicle variety that I'll also inflict on you as and when I can be arsed to sort them out. Some excellent stuff from your good selves of late too, love those Olds Vista wagons, wouldn't mind having a real one as I have a penchant for wagons having owned a few British and American types. And nothing to do with models but as I live not that far from the BBMF at Coningsby I've just had either a Spitfire or Hurricane fly low and fast over my house. A fine sound on a grey December day, cheered me up no end.

I repainted the Majorette Porsche 924 from the previous page,
Think it looks quite good in silver.

Great job JYD, every month I learn about a Majorette casting that I was previously unaware of. Definitely my 'flava' atm, model car manufacturer-wise.

As promised/threatened these are my latest commercial type vehicle purchases plus a bargain BHM Rolls Silver Wraith cabriolet bought from that there Ebay for 30 quid, quite a saving as I think they are normally around eighty. The Dinky Bedford OB's are Code 3 conversions that have been beautifully done by someone with skills, he even makes the boxes.

This arrived today, Vanguards Mini 1275GT. No mirrors are fitted to it strangely, so nicked one from a DeAgostini Lada Niva. Made it look a bit better. Another to add to my collection of 1970s BLshite

Another couple of battered Majorette models due a makeover.
Hopefully they will turn out decent enough.

Some* of you may* have noticed* that I posted relatively little here in the past few months.

The reality is that this is in stark contrast to the actual influx of new models.

For some odd reason I simply didn't manage to keep track of it all.

Would you like me to put aside all the important* stuff life currently throws at me and do a comprehensive update?
