^ I've been meaning to have a go at modifying some of them Fiats myself - we got loads of 'em and inevitably there are a few damaged ones but that does mean I can get a 127 with some Ritmo Abarth wheels on it or somesuch. Just need to find the time :roll:

In other news (and if you haven't seen it on our Facebook page) then the new Corgi releases for April - September 2011 were announced last week, probably a few of interest to mini-shiteists -

Mk4 Cortina 2.0S, Mk1 Fiesta (1.1L & XR2), Mk2 Granada (2.8 & Police) and Miami Blue Peugeot 309 GTi. Also, the first Mk4 Cortina is FINALLY available at the beginning of next month. At long last.

I've got the exact same Green MG 1100, slightly better condition and I think I bought in Bridgnorth a few years ago. There is a small toy shop there that apart from selling very expensive teddy bears also sells model cars, he has a bargain basket of cars from which I've bought a Corgi Triumph Acclaim, Ford Escort Van. Volvo 740, and a some boxed Gama Vauxhalls to name a few.

Nowt wrong with that! I teetered over the edge and fell head-first into a life of nerdism many years ago. You're right about those BMC concepts not being worth much, despite being a super unusual subject they were produced just as much as any other matchbox car of the era. The MG 1100 would be worth a bit if it was mint as it's on the early style wheels which it lost quite quickly, the DBS also I think is probably worth a few bob, as is the Cortina if only because it looks like it's in very good condition. We're still only talking a few quid a pop, but it's GR9 that you got them all free. Round here they'd all be for sale at £15 or something stupid :?

Many years ago Airfix made 1/32 scale "modern cars" some of which were better than others. Some have been resurrected in recent years: you can still buy the MGB, Mk1 Escort and DB5 IIRC. I remember having one (count 'em: one!) FD Victor Estate, which seemed to have an even shorter production run than the full-size car as I never saw it in the shops again. It made up into a lovely model too, but being 10 years old I wrecked it over time... :cry: I would love to find a stock of the real old Airfix cars now! Sunbeam Rapier, Renault Dauphine, Frogeye Sprite, HA Viva, FD of course, Mk3 Zodiac... There must be some lying around somewhere.

Some of those old airfix kits have a near-mythical status. The Capri they did is worth megabucks I know, and I'm sure if you found any of the other ones unbuilt you'd have to pay through the nose for them. They did rerelease the Frogeye, MGB, Aston DB6, Triumph TR4A, E-Type, Ferrari 250LM and possibly the Escort, but the moulds for most of the other ones don't exist anymore and the ones that do are not 'popular' enough to put back into production (can you imagine many kids wanting to build a kit of a Viva?).
The reason the moulds are gone is because in the 70s a lot of the range was turned into a 'Street Machine'-style custom car range and they had to alter the original tooling to make the new models. Real shame that.

Tis a shame, but some of them are as rare as rocking horse doo doo.
I've been trying to get hold of the Marina/Maxi and I haven't got anywhere, and any that I havefound have gone for nearly £150 clams (some nearly £200!), as a result I have resorted to tracking down uilt ones and rebuilding them. :cry:

The sports cars are ten a penny as they keep on being reproduced every ten years or so, along with the Herald, Viva, Escort and Beetle, anything else is rocking horse!

So there I am, having a bit of a preview of Neo Scale Models plans for 2011.

In their catalogue they use photos of actual cars if they haven't got a prototype yet. So I'm leafing through the catalogue and come across a car I've seen before, the actual Dan_Hirst_Galant. :shock: 8) Apparently the model should be pretty much the exact car!

Also, they have a 1:18 scale Mk5 Cortina Ghia which looks absolutely superb. Gonna cost about £120 though...

Don't think the red one is available in the UK though..... only green one shows on importers website.

Personally, I'm rather looking forward to this from Neo

Theres some really cool stuff coming in the next year or so from Neo as well, Mk4 Escort RS Turbo, dangly mirror Mk1 Sierra, Mk2 Golf Country, Datsun Bluebird, Mazda 929 Coupe, Toyota Tercel and not forgetting the D_Hirst_Galant.

There was a resin Mk2 MR2 but its a while back and I can't remember the manufacturer. We got one and only had that on a sale or return basis as the importer had it as a sample from the manufacturer and wanted rid. Don't think they were imported here in the end. Sorry thats not much help really.

Not come across a Sunny or 120Y that I can think of either.

Neo always seem to choose some weird/great stuff, apparently the owner of the company is some massive car lover. Shame they cost so much though, may have to buy the MKI Sierra when I actually have money.
Also, I was passing the second hand store opposite me the other day and they had this in the window:

Cheap too, and these things can go for a good price on ebay, as they rarely appear over here these days. Hmmm.

I only got a look at the catalogue that Neo sent a wholesaler so haven't had a copy myself yet and its not on their website yet either. I'll try and get a picture of something when I see the wholesaler again.
