Bedford Astramax

Fucking hell, I'd forgotten about them. I'm fairly sure I've got a toy one of 'em from when I was a kid...it was either that or an Escort van...when I'm next able to get into my grandmother's loft I'll have a look for you.

YO! Any good?

BMC 1100/1300 http://cgi.ebay.co.u... ... 35a8c2a04a

BMC Oxford / Cambridge - large fins! http://cgi.ebay.co.u... ... 439e9342de

Escort Mk2 (non sporty) Minichamps did one, we are out of stock at present though. Similarly, have a search for Trofeu models as they have done a lot of Mk2 Escorts.

An old boy of my recent acquaintance (who is not a net savvy silver surfer type) has asked me if I can assist him in finding model of the following (pref 1:43 scale)

Austin Maxi - Gearbox Maxi club model 1994 (rare), Milestone Miniatures (expensive), Airfix kit (both)
BMC 1100/1300 - Spot On, Dinky, Ixo, Norev, Vanguards, Vitesse
Standard Pennant - Pathfinder (hugely expensive)
Sunbeam Alpine/Rapier/H120 (arrow) - Pathfinder (expensive)
Fiesta Mk3 - Schabak XR2i
Cortina Mk1 estate - Corgi 1960s
BMC Oxford / Cambridge - large fins! - Vanguards, Cararama but A60 versions only except for tiny Matchbox A55
Escort Mk2 (non sporty) - Trofeu, Minichamps, Solido, Vitesse
Bedford Astramax - AHC/Doorkey I think, certainly a Dutch make
Sooki Supercarry / Bedford Rascal - no idea
Hillman Minx ser.V / singer gazelle ser.V - Spot On
Austin 7 Ruby - Crossways (expensive)
Austin 10 - 1939 Cambridge by Somerville
Morris 8 Tourer - Crossways (expensive)

http://www.crossway-...uk/Civilian.htm

Hope that helps. I have most of those above. Cortina estate and Astramax do not come readily to hand and I sold the Pennant for a huge sum last year. Let me know if you want to see any better pics :wink:

Yes, to my knowledge I'm unaware of any model of a Bedford Rascal / Suzuki Supercarry although I wouldn't mind models of these minivans, Acty & Hijet included!

Theres a picture of my Astramax model, a seller on ebay had alot of them for sale a little while ago, they arent worth more than £15. Pretty good models, nothing special but the only one around. I doubt anyone else will ever make one.

Is that off a Maestro, Montego or a Metro?

I've got a MkV Escort van by them too (or is it a MkVI?!). It's the same shape as the MkV but it has the oval grille at the front.

MKVI I think it is, not too sure! They are a whole lot rarer! Ive seen one for sale in the past year, think it went for £20ish. Its a shame AHC/Doorkey arent around anymore, they modelled some real weird ones.

I wouldn't be surprised if Tomica did at least one of those,it would be in small(1/64?)scale if they did though.As for the A55 with large fins,there is one :). I've seen it at Toyfairs,it comes on a small diorama base.Not sure who makes it though :cry:

Possibly part of the 'Route Bleue' series by Altaya. Was only issued in France and each model was a small diorama depicting a differing roadside scene. We have a couple of other of them in stock but can't (so far at least) get the rest imported at a sensible enough price. The A55 was called something like "English Tourists" and had a couple stood by the car studying a map.

Not urinating in a hedge whilst flicking V signs at passers by, the ground littered with empty beer cans??

I've started to get back into the old stuff. Behold my Tekno Amazon police car. Considering what mental money even battered Tekno stuff goes for, I got this for very little off ebay:

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

It's missing two tyres \ inserts, but I'm currently bidding on a battered Tekno P1800 (I like the symmetry) that has the same wheels and tyres.
Failing that, does anyone know where I can get them new?

I'm also considering a couple of Rob Eddie pieces. He's pretty much modelled Volvo's entire line up from the OV4 to the present day. I've got my eye on the P1900 (yes, 1900, not 1800) and the Philip concept car. They're utterly crazy coin for 1:43s, but I may not get another chance for a long time because of Uni plans. I dunno. I might leave it.
