Hey I'm seeing a guy from Hornby / Corgi at some point, I might suggest some of these.


Well if they are accepting suggestions how about Maestro Montego Metro. It seems as though a scale model of almost every eighties car is available (across various diecast brands) except anything from Austin-Rover who, apart from the SD1 and a few 6R4s, seem to have been ignored.



Edit - I realise Both Hornby and Corgi made Metros and Maestros years ago, but I'm talking collectable diecast models not toys :wink:

+1 on the M/M/M-cars, definitely, having owned all three flavours. Mk1 Cavalier? They already have the Mk2... Chevette, maybe?

What about a 'BullsEye' box set with a box that looks like the studio, with a middle aged brummie couple NOT getting handed the keys to a cinnabar red Metro City by Jim Bowen. Lets take a look at what you could have won!

That'll sell like hotcakes. Though maybe not in the UK. Think of how many Lada enthusiasts, or people who can say "I/my Dad had one of those*" there'll be in Eastern Europe and Russia.

For once the panel fit on a die-cast car looks about as accurate as the real thing.

Only in cream or red it seems. The same casting will also be a SEAT 124 and Fiat 124 as well although the Lada is the first one due out. RRP is £49.99, looks like they should be popular - the 1/43 IST / IXO stuff had sold very well, especially the Lada models. Already presold most of ours, although we do have a couple left...

Only In France sadly. For whatever reason they've never made it over here (actually, a couple did but only small numbers of one or two of them) and probably won't be coming here now either.

I haven't posted here in ages, but thought my latest purchases would be of interest, all from a flea market today at Bath racecourse.

The two packaged Maseratis were £1 each, the rest £7 for the five.

I'm a bit disappointed in myself with the Jensen, I didn't notice the missing pillars. The Princess is very nice, though, 2200HL!

That Capri looks like the Corgi one from the 90s, which turned up in yellow in A Century Of Cars. In the same Corgi series were the Mk1 Escort as saloon or van, and the Mk3 Cortina, based on the old 2-door GXL casting, but with the later rectangular headlights and fixed doors instead of opening. Good shooting, Tatmeister!

Can't afford finance for a quality* pre-enjoyed** car from Cavcraft? Are you a 1/43 scale person who is need of cheap reliable transport? Are you a combination of both?
