Another 'sold out' Vanguards model, picked up for £10.49 including p+p.

If anyone wants one, Ill kindly tell you where they are.
Seems to me like ebay drives the price of these not so common ones way way way up, someones got one of these yellow capris for £40. Bonkers.

I wouldn't mind one of these Capris to add to the collection if there's any left at that price. where did you find it?

Current Shite:

79 T Ford Cortina 2.0S

02 02 MG ZT 190

02 51 MG ZT 190 "for spares"

VWP, i really admire your work on that display, it does look good.Ah, cortinadave, they appear to have sold out, which is annoying, I can keep a look out for one for you though, sorry about that.Also, i saw a picture of the 'colin mcrae' collection releases, the other notable one being a MKI sierra, i really hope this means they will finally make a normal sierra release, no one has ever. And maybe we will get a base one. The 309 looks pretty good, as does the pre production sample of the Legacy.

It's by Norev, originally part of the Italian part series with a magazine like the Altaya 80s cars and so on originally were. This is one of the cheeky unboxed ones from China :wink: as is the 124. They also do a Trevi which is similarly difficult to get hold of. Fulvia is by Starline and a bit easier to get. My next one will be the Pego Beta Berlina when I have the spare funds I think.

I think that set was the only one to make a model of the coach from the film, so thats probably whats making it worth more, as there has been countless reissues of the minis!

It must be a bit galling for VWPowered to be criticised on the bought/brought confusion by someone who abuses apostrophe's regularly. :wink:

thanks VWP, plenty more where those came from although they are the most 'shite'. lots of boring vanguards stuff that everyone's seen before.
here's a few more of my 'restoration' jobs. i tended to just buy totally borked old toys and do them up myself (with varying results) rather than shell out for mint examples.

Hey, this chap has a very interesting shop. He can do me the Norev Asso di Fiori and the Ebbro Mazda AZ 1 for less than Minicapopo.

I'm going to need some serious willpower not to buy those two....
