WTF? A DS on spacehoppers!? :lol::lol:

Citroen did it for the release of the DS way back when.

The balloons were supposed to signify that the ride was like floating on water or something

Most detailed 132 model I've yet seen! Shame it's a police car though....http://cgi.ebay.co.u...1QQcmdZViewItemI'm glad I decided to look at his other items though, he's got come corkers! - if you like Italian cars that is! 8) Best I can do is this IXO Seat 132, indeed it's still the only model I've got of a 132, it's decent enough....http://search.ebay.c...&fsop=32&fsoo=2

I ordered the Police 132 a few weeks back from E-bay and am currently waiting on it. It is new with no box, but mega cheap (think about £7 and a fiver postage). I think I remember someone saying that these types of bargains are probably pocketed items from the production line as they always seem to come from China directly. Despite that, the models usually go for about a fiver and add same again for postage and you've got a bargain!!! I also bought my Tagora and R14 model this way :lol: Just going to check that Seat 132 now! Cheers Regie!

That's what I suspect! It's too much of a coincidence that they're made out there & these eBayers selling them are based out there & it's funny how the models have never ever ever got the box with them! :wink:


Despite that, the models usually go for about a fiver and add same again for postage and you've got a bargain!!! I also bought my Tagora and R14 model this way :lol:



I'm tempted to do that for some of the ones that I've missed that don't seem to get offered as frequently by European eBayers. But I'm a bit of a freak for having everything 'just so' so tend to hang on until I can get one in it's proper box that I know will only have been handled by the production / packaging dept. I could be waiting a while! :roll:

Which Tagora did you get, the white or the black? (pics please!)
I assume the 14 is the same silver GTS I've got? Handy because it's a Portuguese model of a Spanish car so is of the GTS, the likes of which the real version was only available in the Spanish market from Renault's Spanish factories. Also it's the first model of a 'phase 2' R14 from 1980 - 83 [anorak mode]with the indicators next to the headlights[/anorak mode] :wink:

also came up in the search is this 1/43 R9http://cgi.ebay.co.u...p3286.m20.l1116I should have been more careful with the ones of these I had as a kid! :shock: http://cgi.ebay.co.u...id=p3286.c0.m14http://cgi.ebay.co.u...id=p3286.c0.m14

I've got the yellow R5 turbot and the rallying R9 - the 9's missing its front wheels, but the great thing about B(b)urago is you can pop the wheels off one and fit them on another!I think I might try and get a replacement R14 - they really are lovely!

AFAIK we don't get the real versions of these yet (maybe we won't?) as I don't recall seeing them, but here's a couple of recent production Fiat vans.....

does this mean the Doblo's been replaced by the returning Fiorino? In theory (well my own theory) there should be a place for all three! In size order, Fiorino, then Doblo, then Scudo! :)


* if you have a spare 5 mins, check out that seller's other models, there's some spiffing ones there! Unfortunately since I first alerted you to his items last night, the following have sold according to my watch list, but here they are anyway....

The Tagora is a black 2.2 GLS. I'm very please with it as it therefore would have the rattly ex-Simca engine 8) I'll get some pics up.IIRC my 14 is a TS, but I'd need to check again. It is indeed the later wrap-around indicator version - its a fine modelIMO :D

They've gone all overkill here in Ireland. Size wise in ascending order you have:
Sedici van
Grande Punto van
Fiorino
Doblo Cargo
Scudo
Ducato

Talk about covering your bases.

This is the only IXO model of an R14 as far as I know & is the one I've got.....

it has captured the shape very well hasn't it!

http://cgi.ebay.co.u...Q2em118Q2el1247

For Renault 14 models, I've got 1 x Solido, 3 x Norev, 1 x IXO, 2 x Burago, 2 x Mira......think that's it. Always wished there was a Majorette one out there somewhere but I've never seen one. Nearest in that scale is a Norev Mini Jet I suppose, but it was slightly too small.

As mentioned on page 25, some of those Auto Pilen / Pilen models are the same castings as French Dinky but they come in the clear perspex & orange plastic cases as shown in that picture kindly posted by SS90. From that range I have the R14, the Opel Ascona B, Seat 127, Volvo 66DL, R12 Barcelona taxi......think that's it but might have missed something or other!PS: of my bedroom shots on page 25, all of the models from on top of the wardrobe have now gone, been a busy boy bubble wrapping everything in readiness for the house move in two week's time. It's taking bloody hours! :shock: :lol:

New shite purchase from e-bay:

Posted Image

Its a ZIL 117, dating from the 70's. (pic rom the listing). I know sod all about them other than they are heavy, sinister Russian Government cars, so will have fun Googling this marque on my lunch break tomorrow.

The model was a good buy, ZIL models are quite rare on the bay, this one only set me back a tenner.

However it has so far lived up to the terrible build quality of all things automotive and Russian; although both box and car are otherwise mint, 2 of the 4 doors have already sheared off at the hinges and are now held on with blue tack! :D
