In the picture of the Pickfords lorry there is what looks like a Shogun? Can you nab it for me please?


Yeah, it's made by Welly apparently - Pajero name on the base. I had an Automax version, which may be the same casting. Not superb nick, but definitely unusual - will see if it's still there!

I keep seeing tempting stuff in these (almost) weekly photos. As I don't seem to be able to get any sales myself at present could I please ask you to pick me up the blue Corgi 1/36 XJC in the first shot, what looks like a silver Merc W114 in the 4th photo (next to a police Jaguar?), and if they're 1/36 caravans in the 5th photo then a couple of those that are in decent nick and ideally with alternative colour schemes.

 

Will Paypal funds to you.

 

Thanks!

No worries - Jag should be fine, though the Corgi Merc does have structural damage sadly: roof is bent at the rear offside and the rear screen is smashed out (but if you're still interested, it might be cheap?)

Caravans are all Corgi items - will pick two of the best in different schemes?

Generally his stuff is about £3 a pop - if you're happy enough, I'll head over shortly and see what's still about!

Ah well, don't worry about the Merc then. Unless he has another that I haven't seen?

 

Otherwise all good, thanks.

Picked up this "super gt" matchbox lotus recently,with an idea to try and combine it with a original Matchbox one.

I had this pink doorless one,so thought it may be a candidate.
So swapped the base,interior and glass from the original into the GT bodyshell.

Okay, I've just had a look at the Corgi 1/35 caravans and none of them are complete!

Three of the four are missing their door, two have broken/missing glazing, while the only one with a door and glazing has a broken drawbar (and has been painted).

20190315_115558.jpg

Possibly less good than hoped, unless you're building a post-apocalyptic caravan park diorama?

Jaguar XJ12C has a bit of rear bumper loss (o/s quarter) and a crack to the rear screen, but otherwise reasonable.

20190315_120136.jpg

Merc has a bend. And a bust. I'm looking for a good one of these too; sadly I don't think this is it.

20190315_120819.jpg

If none of these are quite as good as you'd want, that's not a problem dude! You're under no obligation to buy rubbish - just wish I'd looked a bit closer at them earlier.


All other Smol Corgis etc from the 50p bins procured as requested, though.

Sure thing - the Europa's been the lucky* recipient of a Humbrol makeover, but seems mostly intact. There's a few white Corgi Volvo's in there; I'll find the best one. SD1 peelermobile can also be procured, no bother! Will toddle back over in a while and see if I can nab those for you.


Thank you. Any other SD1s greatly appreciated. Have a bit of a thi g for them, must own one - one day.

I'll take the Pickfords transporter and the bin lorry you rescued if they're still available.  Not too fussed about the horse box since I've already got a couple of those.

If you're wanting a really convincing chrome, then the Moltow Liquid Chrome pens everyone bangs on about on Youtube are every bit as good as they look, you can't tell the difference between it and the chromed parts on the kit and I'm seriously impressed by it.  For most of the trim, I could just use the pen straight on the car, some bits I needed to blob some paint out and use a paintbrush, and some areas I need to redo where I managed to mess up, which is for my final round of fettling on this.

 

I've made the decision to avoid chasing perfection.  In a way, it being an ordinary spec car has helped hide the imperfections a bit which also makes me feel better about the whole thing. Main weakness is definitely the bodywork, I find it pretty much impossible to keep dust out of the paint and I'm not very good at polishing the paint without going through to the plastic, so I definitely need practice on that side of things.

 

I also learned that the Revell water slide decals are of the more annoying variety because they're quite stiff, so getting them to conform to the shapes of the dashboard was annoying.  There are potions you can buy that soften the decals which I think would have helped.  I'm not to fussed, the interior is quite difficult to see so my less than perfect application isn't too obvious.  I'm just happy that it looks good on display, and doesn't really look like a kit even though it's not quite finished.  I've got small details like side markers, a bit of chrome detailing, hubcap emblems, and that sort of thing to do.  Then a final clean all over to make it look its best for fancy photos.

 

I'm looking forward to finding out what my friend finally does with his half, he won't tell me beyond the fact he's picked out what he's using and has already dismantled and cleaned stuff, so we'll have to wait and see what he comes up with.

Hooked out my boyhood collection from the roof. Only kept a very few boxes. One or two later additions but mostly 1968-78. Trying to track down the ones I destroyed which is a bit of a long list.

 

That's an enviable collection, and very nicely displayed. Good job, chap.

 

I'm in a similar boat, as I'm also trying to track down some of the toys I 'modified' with a claw hammer and bench vice when I was about six, for my 'toy scrapyard' (I was very into scrapyards). Those that were spared that onslaught later received some most interesting custom paints jobs involving Humbrol/Tamiya paints, including the glazing. In despair at my younger self, I sold them all last year as restoration projects. I know...

 

Consequently, I'm starting afresh by collecting up the Corgi/Matchbox/Bburago catalogues of the era to jog my memory, before starting to look for particular models - both those I owned, and those I wanted to own but never did.

 

If there's anything you're looking for in particular, I'd be happy to keep my eyes peeled on your behalf.
