Friend of mine turned up today with a set of 12 or 13 Cameo by Corgi old trucks and buses, all boxed and perfect. Stuff like a Cadbury's van, an old Charabanc, old Railway vans and stuff. Think the set is from 1991, but anyone know if it's worth anything, or should they just keep hold for a few more years? It's a complete 'Readers Digest' set, so it's probably not worth much, but looking at them, I'd have thought at least a few would be very sought after, but I know nothing about this kinda thing.

here's something similar for fifty smackers: http://cgi.ebay.co.u...1205187001r4893 so I suppose it's probably worth something? thing is, with stuff like this, it'll only go up in value as it gets older, so unless your mate is desperate for some cash i'd say shove it in the loft for another ten years and see what they are worth then

^ As above. I will have some value but holding onto it for another ten years will only see it's value increase.

Hey.

Not really into F1 stuff, but I like the also rans and anything with a back story.

Like this:

Posted Image

This is a 1991 \ 2 Jordan 192. It had the same Yamaha OX99 V12 that would later go into the abortive supercar of the same name. I need to get the Brabham BT61 that used it as well.

It popped up on eBay for next to nothing, and I decided I was having it. It's a Kyosho - I had no idea they made 1:43s.
As I say, I only have a passing interest in F1, but I'd like a Brabham BT61 and a Simtek as well. The latter seem to go for daft money though.

Oddly, last week I bought a 1996 Pacific F1 car for buttons which is going in my personal stash. Some F1 stuff does go very cheap. Oddly the Simtek models always fetch good money as does the 7Up liveried Jordan.Theres some interesting new Minichamps F1 stuff due out later this year. Amongst the McLarens, Williams' et al are a few of the also rans - Arrows, Larrouse etc.

1/24 scale Burago. Detail isnt too bad, not brilliant though. Im toying with dismantling it and spray painting it up to match my old one, but the wheels wouldnt look right so it will probably stay as it is.

Yeh the Bburago range from the 70s/80s is full of prime shite. Its all worth a little more than youd expect though, which is a shame as Id love to get some.I got 2 Gama models yesterday, an Ascona C and a Rekord. Still need a Belmont though.

Is that off a Maestro, Montego or a Metro?

Vin, its the Italeri re-hash...the rally one with the blanked side windows opened up and a scratchbuilt rear hatch :) The ESCI kits are pretty good I have a Transit but am after another one to turn into a beavertail. They fetch good money on evilbay though. :)

Once I get my Brabham BT60, my shite F1 collection is complete. Even if they never made a Brabham - Yamaha. I'll just have to make do with Damon Hill's Brabham Judd.

Behold!

Double Simtek S941 boxset by Minichamps. Had to send for Holland for these pair. David Brabham (31) and Roland Ratzenberger (32).

Might have to get an Onyx Pacific PR01 as well.

You can buy repro grilles/bumpers for most of the spot-on range now, not 100% about the 1100. Tyres, I guess you can get, but i'd reckon ones from a corgi or dinky of the same era might fit, and those are easily got. If I were you I wouldn't sell it, get the bits and fix it up, it'll make a nice little project and you'll probably never see another one... My spot-on Multipla is one of my favourite models for that reason.

my shite F1 collection is complete.

For the moment at least. Minichamps are releasing a load of more obscure F1 cars later this year - Larrouse Lamborghini, Arrows, Leyton House March, Super Aguri and assorted Tyrells. Strange you should mention the Pacific - I bought a PR02 to accompany my PR01 a week or so back :D I'd like a Simtek but can't get them new anymore and all the ones on ebay seem to go for daft money.
