I've got that exact Ritmo. Not sure about the 505 but I've definitely got Norev & IXO versions of it.I'm sure that giant dollop of whipped cream behind them will come in handy for something!

It is isn't it. Minichamps stuff in general is very very good, they don't often seem to get it wrong.

I like Fords, but I have been trying to get other marques as well, but alot of them are quite neglected, like Vauxhall for example.

That Citroen garage diorama is brilliant....I'm trying to do something similar in 1/24 scale. Trouble is I have to make everything, and anything I cant get in kit form I have to scratchbuild so its taking ages. :roll:

It took me a long time to understand the concept of scratchbuilding, meaning building from scratch, not scratching something to make something :lol: :oops:

But even now I can't really comprehend how you can make a model out of nothing, i.e. not based on a kit or something......I just can't get my head around it, I wouldn't know where to begin! Surely you'd need some sort of moulds or templates or something...just something to work with or from!

Oh I have toyed with this idea of building a diorama for many months now, and its not like Im short of cardboard, living above a shop and all.I just dont know where to start, plus I need wood as well, as a cardboard piece could look a bit flimsy without a base or 'supporting wall' if you will.I could do it this summer....... possibly.

I use plastic card and whatever else I can lay my hands on. Various plastic bits and bobs such as angle profiles are available, but it aint cheap.

Some shots of my latest mini shite. I really will have to peg the collecting back now, mainly for the sake of my bank balance and space.

A pea green Lada Samara is on the way from China.
I ended up going to the Toy Fair at the Reebok Stadium with Fatha_wat. Cheap entry and there was some good stuff on display, although the prices varied massively.

Posted Image

I don't really collect rally stuff, but this IXO Citroen BX 4TC seemed canonically shite - after all I'm a fan of the underdog. I'll get myself a Simtek S951 if the price is right. This was £9 well spent.

Posted Image

Next, a lovely blue Minichamps Ford RS 200 caught my eye. These seemed to vary in price according to stall and colour. The blues varied from £15 - 50. One seller had all three colours and was asking for £80 for a white 1:43! Madness. My blue 'un was £15.

Posted Image

Finally got myself the Minichamps Polis Amazon Kombi I wanted. Only one store had it, and it cost me £22 for the bother. Mind you, it was better than the £30 he wanted to start with.

Posted Image

Finally, this shop soiled-but-sound Vitesse Mitsubishi Carisma caught my eye. Really crazily detailed for a 1:43 - it has dials in the instrument binnacle, textured trim, and an opening bonnet and doors. Case is a bit knackered but responded to a clean, and the model itself is mint. All for a bargainous £4.

Was looking at the Hornby APTs as well. I have one of these, it tilts and everything. Didn't realise they were worth that much.......

Looks like you did pretty well there Wat! I did think about going but couldn't really be arsed in the end. The price variations are half the problem with fairs like Reebok, you get those people selling stuff at a massively inflated price but also a few that are dumping stock and will sell at essentially cost price - £15 for your RS200 is cheaper than wholesale price on Minichamps.
