Lobster_san, are there any plans for a 5 door 1:43 Peugeot 306 any time soon? Would love to add one to my collection. Also, do you have any spare glass tops? I'd love a few for my 1:43 Vitesses, and the rally PV 544 I've got (which I think is Altaya).

Not seen any 5dr 306s but I would imagine Norev or IXO/Altaya must produce one at some point. Will let you know. I'm guessing you mean the clear plastic display case that sits on top of the plinth and encloses the model? Have got the odd Altaya one kicking about but don't think I've any Vitesse ones. The Vitesse ones seem to break fairly easily as well so we used what spares we had ourselves.

Yes mate, the clear plastic tops. Would love a quote on an Altaya top when you get a minute. I've also noticed that you've got the Ebbro Beat in stock......

Er, upon checking I think my PV544 is actually an IXO.

Ah right....would you be able to get me a yellow Beat or would it be a special order job? I'm also after a Minichamps 1:43 scale Amazon estate Swedish police car.

Would probably have to order a yellow Beat - we had them but they sold pretty quickly. Will have a look though... Amazon Police car sounds familiar. Will get back to you on that.

Polo is pretty good tbh. But then pretty much everything Minichamps do is of a fairly high standard.

Has anyone ordered from this 'cyrustsang' bloke on eBay HK?He has a load of TAT at very good prices that I stupidly want, mostly IXO stuff.There's a pea green Lada Samara, a red Riva and a rally Renault 15 I like the look of.Lobster has a few models as well, namely that red Seat Ibiza and the Amazon 'POLIS' estate, and that Ebbro yellow Beat he's looking into for me.Any spare IXO plinths \ tops going lobster? Best put these on my New Year's tab. Are you planning to go to the toy fair at the Reebok stadium?

Yes, "cyrustsang" is an excellent seller, I've had laods of cheap stuff from him and a couple of other Chinese sellers that have similar stuff. I cannot fault their service - in fact the HK and Chinese eBayers are some of the most concientious (sp?) and most polite to deal with of all.I usually get two or three models at a time so it keeps the postage down.
I dont no wot there worth tbh mate only wont it for pre 68 obvserly lol hav u got any pics plz mate

Amazon Polis doesn't appear to be in stock. I'm going to order some anyway, wether I actually get them is a different matter. Same story with yellow Beat as well tbh. Importer shows they are available but doesn't actually have them in stock atm... Not had a look for spare Altaya tops but even if I haven't got any I can probably get hold of some in January. Reebok - no. Did it a few years ago and it was an absolute wate of time and effort. Toyfairs can be good in terms of picking up bargains but its difficult to actually make money from them.

Oh FFS stop this now lobster, I want this as well now....

Wat's 1:43 list as of 26/12/09 (which cannot get any bigger than this lot because of storage limits)


Honda Beat - Yellow (Ebbro)
Dome Zero - (Ebbro)
Lada Niva - Orange (IXO)
Volvo Amazon Estate - Polis (Minichamps)
SEAT Ibiza - Red (Altaya)
Talbot Tagora - White (Altaya)
Renault 17 - Rally (IXO)

Might get a couple of loose IXOs ordered from cyrustsang now, then get some IXO \ Altaya stands and tops from Mr. Lobster along with his Ibiza and Tagora.

I think a VW-powered-type workshop/depot/scrapyard is called for, but there are nearly as many scales as models :(
