Michiel, didnt realise the age of the plate. I've got a selection of plates saved from truck kits, how do you tell the year so I can bring it up to date?

I looked it up here: http://www.autobedri...tekenseries.htm Hope you can work out what to click... last category only goes up to 1999, 00-AA-AA format.

It appears the plate I have at home ('41-FX-25') is from 1975 if I've read the table correctly.

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.

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:

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v214/t...

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

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v214/t...
The green Jags were available from Nestlé as a promotion on Kit Kats IIRC. Have you got any close up pictures of the extra detailing on them?

In regards to police Jaguars, I also have a Matchbox Super Kings Series 2 or 3 very similar to the Corgi one.

Do you purchase duplicates on purpose or do you buy them not realising you've already got them, as has been mentioned?

I buy most of my models from local (Bucks & Berks) carboot sales. I buy for three reasons:

1. I like collecting.
2. I feel like I am saving a rare model from the hands of a child (who may damage it).
3. For investment. I buy cheap and know that some of the models are worth good money.

I don't mind having duplicates and I don't feel that they compromise the collection.

Spot on re the green XJ40! More pics:

The small silver BX is by Norev.

The light blue Fiat Ritmo is by Pilen, made in Spain.

The red Talbot Horizon is by Guisval, also made in Spain.

Hey, went for a MEGA LOFT CLEARANCE today on my rest day. Found a veritable shitload of Lledo 1:43s (including a boxed Thrust SSC I didn't realise I still had) and all my old DTM guff that I was looking for. Plus some old battered Corgis and Dinkys.

Posted Image

Solido \ Vitesse Renault collection. The white boggo Clio I bought when I went to Tignes skiing in 1992 with Fatha_Wat.

Posted Image

Solido Clio Williams. LOVED these when they came out.

Posted Image

Williams and Alberville 1992 edition Clio.

Posted Image

Solido 19 Cabrio. Bought this from the Renault showroom \ museum on the Champs Elysee in 1993 or thereabouts.

Posted Image

Vitesse Laguna Estate. Got this as a pressie from my dad's friend when he ran J&E on Manchester Road. Always thought the rear deck looked weird.

Posted Image

Minichamps 190E DTM. Went through a spate of liking the DTM stuff. This was mega cheap from Bowlers because it was unboxed.

Posted Image

Corgi WW Ford GT70. Has a really detailed Essex V6 mounted midships.

Posted Image

Corgi GT40. Bonnet and boot open. Might have had the innards painted gold at one time, doesn't look original.

Posted Image

4WD Tomy Beetle thing. Had this from a very young age.

Posted Image

Corgi Series 1 Land Rover. Thought Mr. Ross might like.

Posted Image

Minichamps DTM Calibra. Lost the pantograph bit on the wiper. Balls.

Posted Image

Onyx ETM Vectra Touring Car......

Posted Image

Schuco Vauxhall Vectra.

Posted Image

Minichamps DTM Ford Mondeo. Probably my favourite out of my touring cars, mainly for the weird livery.

Posted Image

Battered Corgi Lancia Fulvia Zagato. Loved the side hinged bonnet.

Posted Image

Vanguards Bedford. Listed underneath as a 'Big Bedford' :)

Posted Image

Minichamps DTM BMW E36.

Posted Image

Corgi 'Saint' Volvo P1800.

Posted Image

Dinky LSR car which I think is a Thunderbolt.

Posted Image

Corgi MGA which is quite boss.

Posted Image

Corgi VW Transporter which has an opening tool chest.

It's not the first time I've been told that about the Dinky LSR. Whenever I seem to ask, it seems it's worth fuck all. I will have a browse though, cheers for the heads up.

Right.

A big truck has unloaded it's contents into Chateau LobsterDiecast, bringing with it the latest in the way of 1/43 Altaya stuff. For those interested this includes

Morris 1100
Renault 4 GTL
Citroen BX
Citroen AX (blue this time)
Renault 9
Renault 11 Turbo (in red)
Renault 25 GTS
Peugeot 309
Fiat 131 Mirafiori
Fiat Ritmo
Fiat 124 Coupe
Austin Healey Sprite
VW Golf mk2 GTi

plus a few others.

With the exception of the Golf, they will all land here!here![/url]

'Shiters discount is available although I'd rather do off ebay for discounted stuff so PM me or something. If you'd rather buy on eBay then you can still have a discount, just not as much obviously and send us a message or something so we can send an invoice.

Additionally, I only have a relatively small number of Golfs and want to take some to the VW shows we do so they won't get on t'bay but there are a few available to 'shiters if required. They look like this anyway >

Hmmm I definitely need one of those R25s, maybe the 309 too. I still need one of those Fiestas, everytime I check though, the price seems to have changed on them! :?

I'm having a few issues with price on them at the moment. We ordered them at £X but they have actually arrived and have cost less than that which is nice but I'd priced everything from the order. So I need to revise prices on some of them downwards on ebay which I'm doing very shortly. Once I've done that I'll work out a new 'shiters price and let you know!

So you take good ones like the red one and deliberately make them look old and ruined? :? :? I thought you just bought them like it at auto jumbles etc for a matter of pennies (cents).

the scrappers are generally 10c up to a euro purchased just for the yard, from boot sales etc, decent one's like the red 18 will have new rims and subtle mods to make it look proper job (like the rubber windows seals, windscreen seal, number plates, it wont be trashed just made more realistic looking proper lights etc :)hence why the red 18 has minilites 8)
