all in original packaging as seen in pics, although the BMW cardboard has had the white facing peeled off underneath, leaving shameless naked buff card.   None of them have been opened. 

 

£6 posted UK each, or two for £10, all three for £12.

More waterslide experimentation. This time a replica of my old H van using a 1/24 Welly as a base.
As usual for me it's driving the graphics software that's been my main hassle hence there's a few errors.
I'm not that happy with the results close up but it looks ok from a distance. Much like the real van.
Apparently there's some fancy modelling solutions to apply to reduce silvering and to aid application over
uneven surfaces so I'll be trying them out on my next project.
First pic is the real van ,then the Welly, then my results.

I've had incoming, including the 'not Sweeney, honest guv' Mk2 Granada 2.8iS pre facelift. The certificate mentions it chasing old Jaguars on the telly box, and that it was part of Ford's pres & promotional fleet. Cararamalamadamadingdong P38 & Bond Miserati Trans Turbot came from a fb group unboxed n cheap, Rangey had no lightbar, and the Mierable had no mirrors, my spares stash found a perfect fit lightbar, and the mirrors are a smidge too big, but meh. The Rangey also had a nonsense reg plate, but now has an 'Essix innit' reg number, looks nice sat with my other plod models. Eagerly await further chod :)

The yellow bits are paint. The Martinet graphics are lifted from the first photo of the original van. Other bits are just whatever I could find close enough in my graphics software. Next time I'll get left and right correct, maybe on 1/12 Norse.

I drill it centrally and re rivet it. Or failing that I tap another thread and use a screw.

I think I need to drill down further, I only did far enough to get the original rivets out. Will try that first.

Couple of Vanguards I own which I no longer want.
I was thinking £20 for the Capri, £20 for the Escort and £25 each for Granada and Cortina?
Or £75 all in.
