  1. Great to see updates on this! The lights look brilliant.👍
  2. Yep!😆 that brings back memories!!
  3. I’m 99% sure the STP decal on the bonnet of the last one is not original. That car, and the black wagon and two T birds were mine from childhood, and I’m sure I got a sticker set with number plates etc etc from somewhere or other.
  4. I’m still mystified as to wtf that yellow Porsche is all about! I did wonder if the sticker on the base was the code for the combination lock but it didn’t seem to do anything when I tried? But even if it did… what would it do!? That pickup has scrubbed up pretty well!
  5. Never seen that little set! I can’t remember seeing them at all. Your box is still here, just waiting on one last thing for it so I’ll put it in your box. Hope your daughter likes it! Hmm, that’s why I didn’t recognise it then. I (wrongly as it turns out!) assumed the Hoynor trailers all had blue cabs. Clearly not. I think I’ll have a look for a military trailer for the green cab…
  6. Maybe it was something else I was thinking of? Husky maybe?
  7. Had a wonder into town earlier, popped into a local charity shop just on the off chance anything was in. Not much really, but I did rescue these for a few quid! Majorette Impala police car in pretty good shape. Corgi Transit isn’t too bad. Lesney Mercedes looks rough but it’s complete and rolls well too, and it’s one I don’t have already! The dumper says zylmex but reminds me of early Matchbox/Lesney ones, even the mechanism for the dumper. The odd ball though is the Matchbox Bulldog! It’s got a rollamatics style wheel and mechanism so the jaw opens and closes as it drives along! No idea what that was from!? I only took it as it would have been lonely on its own! Anyone want it free?? But the real treasure (imho!) was this, Yeah ok the screen is smashed out. And the chassis plate is loose so the 5th wheel coupler doesn’t work unless you hold it all together, but it’s not bad otherwise so I’m going to get a replacement glazing piece and strip it for a code 3 repaint! Anyone know what trailer it would have had? I don’t recognise the logo or the yellow chassis?
  8. The worst job is trying to remove years of hair that gets wrapped up on the axles!🤢
  9. I never noticed the cab interior colours! Makes you wonder what a big toy of this quality would cost nowadays? Just picking it up you can feel the ‘heft’ and quality of the things. I’m well impressed with them. Heres the spares list; https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/373306508125?hash=item56eacd435d:g:mFEAAOSwMrxfiDK6&amdata=enc%3AAQAHAAAAsPTU2MRGX1BpmNUjS9pQtyWhculpLmxZK5PHUg0E%2F1XZVsuMYuK%2Bck2FMAWxrhGX9QASCZSjVWB9ZA8ynaXVEMflmx9gb4CB%2FkdbKHQkF%2BCDbBBffCd2JltJaSwIEKAjuvDN4X70GMZNTE0Y63RE2hvtVbhbVKojaMQXqzOLRX3zfrNqjTsKIbDfOtVmXNiaAM5GE40OXTI4VltE9n3svh9kfYRzwNROUUCkmKdNlfjQ|tkp%3ABk9SR-aorrS-YQ I might get a set of hoses for mine. What are you cleaning yours with? Mine needs a clean but I really don’t want to damage the old stickers.
  10. Couple of other recent additions. Corgi Regal’s. Matchbox Mini, Mercury, Zodiac, Escort, Capri & the Cortina I posted above. Heres my Dinky AEC tanker. Missing its hoses…! I’ve checked inside the tanker. Only a scrap of paper in there! Oddly mines has grey tanker tops & caps. Wonder why they did different colours?
  11. Couple of new additions in the post today. Really nice Matchbox Cortina to replace my old rough one in the same colour, and one you’ve seen before courtesy of @Datsuncog thanks for that, it’s a lovely model!
  12. 😆Bloody hell! I wonder how long they’ve been in there!? Great result.
  13. Maybe it’s the missing tank caps!😄
  14. Glad you like it and it sounds like it’s found a good home now! They are a surprisingly big heavy model aren’t they! Look great though. I did toy with the idea of keeping this but one man doesn’t really need two. Can you see anything inside the tanker? I’m sure something was rattling around inside but I couldn’t see what it was.
  15. Got a parcel from @FakeConcern as part of a swap deal. Lovely pair of Corgi Commer vans. Well happy with these two as I’ve not got these versions so thank you very much @FakeConcern👍
