The detailing on the Cortinas looks superb, especially the wheels and lights.

Do they do a Hillman Avenger 1600 Super, pre-'76 facelift, preferably in Cherry Red? Just wondered... :wink:

Woah. Cheers for the picture Lobster, that detailing is superb. Of all the post Hornby Corgi Vanguards, I have only bought the Nova, which was good, but not great. But that looks brilliant, better than the MKIII Cortina one.
Chaseracer, they do have a Hillman Avenger but not in that colour.

Is that off a Maestro, Montego or a Metro?

Old Tamiyas do fetch strong money nowadays.The old 3-speed Hi-lux and Blazers fetch upwards of £350 for one that need restoring for example.

Hmmm. Wonder what my VGC original Sand Scorcher (boxed-up in the attic since 1985) would go for?

Yeah maybe, except it sent me off on a trail of new windows that seemed to bear no relation to what I thought I was going to see. Fortunately Mrs Ramrod wasn't in the room! :shock:

Values of these have took a hit since Tamiya re-released these earlier this year.I've seen half decent examples go for around £150 but should fetch more if its nice and comes with its box and paperwork.

For no good reason I thought I'd show you these, which represent a tiny fraction of my collection:

As you can see, there's a bit of a police-car bias! Also a considerable lean towards Detroit, which is understandable the moment you look at the cars I've owned. I'm still buying, but on a rather more occasional basis now. Just think, someone has to pack all these away for our move in the spring. That'll be a job for me then!

Corgi haven't announced any new releases for April onwards yet, official announcement due shortly. Cortinas are as good as they look though, wouldn't expect them to hang around too long :D The post Hornby Corgi stuff has been a lot better than before and sells a lot better too!

I counted 45: 20 white, 25 bronze. If I hadn't repainted my two, I'd have one of each. As it is, I have one black and one red, to match the real ones I had. I can't imagine the Dinky model was a big seller, as it was still a toy in those days, and suffered from having no opening/operable features, nor even any suspension. My Corgi Marina Coupe, by comparison, has opening doors and bonnet, suspension and Whizzwheels. And it's painted blue to match my real one from 1983... Nowadays of course, the Vanguards Princess is a "Collectors' Model" and isn't expected to have opening doors etc, though at least it's available in colours that were used on the real cars. Anyone remember Marina Coupes in metallic lime green? Thought not... :mrgreen:

ok a quicker build hopefully it will inspire others to try...

Posted Image

wow what a mess, looks like pikey's have been

Posted Image

simple base 32x40cm, sandpaper as road base, cardboard sprayed for fence

Posted Image

simple moke up of how it should sit together

Posted Image
Posted Image

THE DOLL IS NOT MINE.... :o)

garage simply a cardboard box covered in white paper and bits out of magazines as posters

Posted Image

ahhh the stash shelf, lots of cars died for this but what an effect it has as a piece, shelfs made of modelling matchsticks and bits of lego

Posted Image

im not so good at scratch building only managing to build afew items, one is this tyre machine

Posted Image

Modded 504 sits its place in the garage with shelf in place

504 has datsun 240z wheels and headlights and indicators from a rally 504

Posted Image

see how quick it fills again...???

Posted Image

windows will replace my iffy matchstick ones, cutting glass (yes glass not plastic) all part of the fun. (the reason i use glass is one the reflection you get, normally very clear to see through, glass doesnt scratch as easy), epic wheel collection just keeps growing

Posted Image

something else i built was the tyre rack

Posted Image
Posted Image

appearance changed alot with simple add-ons

Posted Image

oh postbox built that too :o) bit of lego and a driveshaft done...

next installment, rendering the walls, adding more detail to the garage itself...

This is the reason why she isn't keen on me collecting stuff, yet she still bought me another new Tonka truck and a Tomica garage (more of that later) for Christmas.........

blimey nice collection of tonka's :D

update :

coated in thick pva then sand shaken on top... allow to dry

Posted Image

do all the bits you need to

Posted Image

will dry like so

Posted Image

mines painted in gloss which i find is alot harder to damage over emulsion which cracks, sometimes afew coats are needed, first coat onto framework

Posted Image

sizing it up...

Posted Image

put pva all along the baseline and cut some moss (yes the stuff down forest like) into fine bits., sprinkle over the area you've glued...repeat till its dense, spray with watered down glue to set it solidish...

Posted Image

umm walls, cheeky fix lego taped together, then again the same as walls, pva and sand, then whatever colour you require on top...

Posted Image

the work continues :D
