My *absurdly well packed* parcel arrived yesterday (or was it Monday? It was delivered to my work address and they can...take their time in notifying).

 

Super happy with all my purchases and looking forward to coaching a 3 year old through the process of making the snap-together Camaro!

 

A pleasure doing business with THE DEALER

I noticed in the second pic of your boot sale there what appears to be a small cardboard (?) double garage for 2 x Matchbox sized cars? Is that still available? Thanks!


Ooh, sorry for only picking up on this now - the garage is a fairly modern tinplate Czech reproduction by Kovap of what looks like a 1970s CKO item, roughly 1/43 scale but would fit Matchbox for sure.

And yes, still available! There's a tinplate Beetle and T2 Bay Kombi as well, by the same manufacturer - links to pics should be in the last listings post!

Do you have details of the brochures?

 

Gosh, yes (sorry, been a bit of a week of it) - I had them all listed in the buy and sell thread in early December last year with minimal takers -  a cursory glance through the box shows:

And also...

Think that's mostly it! Really just looking to cover postage, if there's any there that interests you.

 

EDIT: Now linked to my previous posts from December - just click/poke each of the above links and, thanks to the magic of The InternetTM, you can see a photo and a fuller description of each. I know, right?

Boats arrived today, nicely packaged. Thankyou!

Very happy with them. One was tested today in the paddling pool, will get the hot tub out next and test them again after the kids go to bed ☺IMG_20180715_203512.jpg

Another brilliant package arrived from Mr Cog today who should do eBay tutorials on how to pack things.

 

Thanks Tim  :-D

Package that was nothing less than a work of modern art arrived over the weekend, a treat to arrive home to.

 

Terrifying anthropomorphic Mini Traveller that might actually be from hell itself will act as a "good luck" talisman when I drive the Rover to Orkney this weekend.

 

Great cellar.

 

I must stop now.

Heh, that's brilliant - the pic looks like some sort of surrealist picture with a mad sky.

Hope they both passed the hot tub test!!!

That's the very same Spot-On Maurice that I dragged out of a jumble sale bag some 25-odd years back???

More pixtures, if you'd be so kind - that looks chuffing awesome in its nice new beigeness!

Well played!

Yeah, I guess I find it hard to know where to stop with the tape... it would break my black little heart if something fell out and vanished forever into the depths of the Royal Mail machine, so "just another four circumferences" seems to be my mantra...

Hopefully the Troublingly Merry Mini hasn't seeped into your subconscious yet, and will prove a worthy mascot for such an arduous trip - can't wait for the write-up!

I fear my torrent of available models has now dwindled to more of a trickle, but maybe that's no bad thing for the sanity and wallets of all here gathered...

Thanks again, and enjoy!

Whoo-hoo! Glad it all arrived with you safely... Did you stay in professional mode and keep the unboxing until safely ensconced at home, or did you just tear it open then and there?? Either's good...

And do let us know how your little 'un got on with the Very Orange Camaro!

I've just realised a whole heap of pics were posted on the Shite in Miniature thread - just marvellous! That shade of beige looks just right too. Cracking stuff.

I'm absolutely blown away at the effort people are putting in to these formerly very sad specimens... but then again, if anywhere has people so inclined, it's gotta be here... great stuff, can't wait to see how it turns out (genuinely, no pressure at all though - I'm just glad they didn't end up binned).
