  1. Who doesn’t love a Cougar Eddie 😉
  2. I think it’s basically just a video of someone’s collection with a brief description of the toy. But if I stilll have it it’s not been watched since the last century 😂
  3. I think I’ve got one of them in the depths of the loft? No2 maybe. Are you after some or have you acquired some?
  4. Hey that alright, did you build it or buy it (and where!)
  5. I had a Maxi taxi in period as a kid in the Stars and Stripes box.
  6. Looked fabulous in the flesh too, here’s a video I took at the time:
  7. It’s true I love that Corgi SL it’s just so delicate , a perfect colour too. Pretty much a favourite as a kid and still 40 odd plus years later!
  8. Top bombing @FakeConcern 👍
  9. Its like a Bond Equipe and a Renault 11 had a tinplate offspring!
  10. Why did so many model it? Did it look modern back in the late 50’s?
  11. Probably as simple as someone at Midland went to school with/played Golf/in the lodge with someone at Dinky. Its a new one on me though, like Tim it’s totally escaped my radar. I do like Dinky but I’m a Corgi guy at heart - is it me or is it tribal @ Ford ‘v’ Vauxhall type thing where you favour one or the other?
  12. ‘81 very much has a continental vibe - I wonder if there was a big euro push in ‘81?
  13. Too true!!! I also wish I didn’t have access to my dads vice in the garage… and he let me have an air rifle to shoot the bigger toys 😂
  14. I have to say today is spectacular Tat fest! I wish we knew the back stories to these finds.
  15. I did not needlessly spend half hour re jigging these shelves earlier 😁 No rhyme or reason, just things I enjoy in matching colours!
  16. I reckon Wetherspoons to join the 8am liquid breakfast club on the way should prepare you for the stench.
  17. Hey @Datsuncog if you have the cash I’d still fancy one of those Corgi Mustangs 👍
  18. Bit bigger than we are used too! Tamiya 1/10th TT01E chassis with a WRC Subaru shell. I built the chassis last year, painted it in the summer (You spray from the inside on the clear lexan plastic, the vents and back windows are actually heavy spray tint you can see through just about) and today whilst dying I finally stickered it all up. Fully functional RC but not likely to be used in anger - I have battered ones for that! (Besides the shell is far too low for the wheels to turn). Don’t look too close at the stickers, like I said I’m dying today!
  19. I’m so glad Dan rehomed those two… that was close 😆
  20. I walk pass a traditional independent dept store on my lunch time walk at work, and today I pooped in for a mooch…. Which turned into a quick coffee.. which turned into a bap and a cappuccino… It was particularly nice actually! Of course I think - might as well have a look in the toy section whilst I’m here….….. You can guess the rest 😂 So those 6000 steps ended costing £18 after all that…. sandwiches and sofa be safer and cheaper tomorrow 🤣
  21. No Monico is in Essex you fool 😂 https://visitingcanvey.co.uk/attractions/bar-monico-canvey-island/
  22. I buy them too when I see them, this and the X19 were both favourites as a kid.
