somewhere in amongst that giant hoard was a photo with two what appear to be Series 3 Jaguar police cars, except they are 2 door. What's that then?Also, I'd love to get an XJ40 like the green one in one of the first photos.

'93 Jaguar XJ12, '05 Great Wall Deer, '61 M-B E350CDi Estate

Im not actually sure you know, after looking on google it came up with this baseplate:
Posted Image

No manufacturer name, and it says USSR, so perhaps the model is older than me.......
It cost me £12, plus the £5 more for postage as its from Holland. There is another one on the bay at the moment I think.....
Are they rare? I have heard of them before, but does anyone with a wider knowledge know anything more?

Also, Peter, I see you have a schabak Passat? How much did that set you back? I really do want one of those.

The Ebbro stuff is pretty good, certainly comparable to Minichamps in terms of finish / detail etc.

1;43 two door Range Rover Classic. Who makes that then? And well done Hudson, I thought the top picture was real at first.

Solido, apart from it having non orange front indi's and red rear lenses, is actually a nice model, have resisted the urge fer 32" Chrome Rimz :lol:

The green Jag XJ40s are by Matchbox. Not sure of their origin, but they are more detailed than the ordinary maroon coloured versions. See top left in photo:

The police cars are older Corgis (I think). They are Series 2 cars. Series 3 had black plastic bumpers!

I'm putting this nice set of Tomica Limited Vol. 1 Skylines up for sale:

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

£80 including postage within the UK, which is less than I paid for them. Might sound expensive, but remeber there's 12 models in there. I don't know if they've ever been taken out of their individual boxes. This set covers the older models and has a standard and alloy-wheeled version of each one.

The home of one previous owner Japanese cars:

1973 Datsun 1200 B110 2dr; 1980 Laurel 2.4 C230; 1988 Sunny 1.6 LX N13
1992 Camry 2.2GL (definitely just for spares now); 1993 Camry Estate 2.2GL on the road again!!

And a couple of modern Toyotas

Skills! Fatha_wat's friend runs a tyre business in Sale and owns an 840 that used to belong to Jay Kay. His name's on the log book and everything.

In other news, I managed to track down a 'Scandinavia only' Minichamps 1959 Amazon in red.

Posted Image

The vendor sent me a charming Netherlandglish meshage today saying he's posted it. Can't wait.

It's got loads of little details that were deleted on later cars like mine - the front grilles, hubcaps and boot garnish are different.

YESH! I love Dutch accented English. There was a girl on the radio when I was at University (before foul illness) who was utterly beautiful. She also sounded a bit like Goldmember :D 'Ohhhh yesh, dish ish Eytey Sheven poynt sheven baylreeg eff emm and shat wash de Blahck Reybl Motrshycle Clubb....dey're great!'

I did not know that. I know you lived there for a bit, but you lived further north of the city than me. I was a student there but everything went to pot when my health declined. Everything faltered, I didn't get my degreeand it's only really now that I'm getting back to where I was before things went a bit pants. I'd like to go back there in ten years or so and do something postgraduate, as I liked living there, problems nothwithstanding. When were you there? We've probably met and not realised, although the campus is effing massive. I was on Bailrigg a HELL of a lot in my third year. I spent far too much time there when I should have concentrated on studying and getting better. I was also Head of Production for a term but then the other mancom members voted me out when the decided a recovering external student couldn't be on the management committee.
