    No problem, I'll mark these both as sold to you@bunglebus

    @eddyramrod
    Likewise, I'll put these to one side for you too. Thanks. 
    Guilty! I'd realized after I made the original post, that I'd forgotten to include it. So quickly edited it afterwards. 
    I'll leave the pm's about payment, until either over the weekend or Mon if that's ok with everyone?
    Just in case anyone else wants to buy anything before I put them all away again.
    Although I will try and go back in the loft for another look 1st. As I'm sure there a few others hidden somewhere. 
    It's the reason I'm partly selling it, as I keep being tempted to start looking for more Darda whenever I look at it.
     Which is last thing I should be doing right now! You watch though, in another 12 months. I'll be out buying some more.

    I have a reasonable Commer milk float frame but am after a van or pickup body instead
    The red one on the right was in the toy box at my Nan’s when I was small.  Painted it last year, can’t part with it so wanted to do something with it.  Is a Transolighter too

    The plastic body ‘Hong Kommer’ isn’t going to fit without cutting it about

    Anyone have a box of Commer spares ?

    Also had a school day moment
    Struck me that the Ford Thames ‘Airborne Caravan’ was a slightly smaller cab casting  compared to the Ford Thames ‘Atlas Copco’.  Thought that a bit odd… then looked underneath

    I am muppet!  One is Dinky and one is Corgi.

     
    Doh.

    In which case, could I also claim the Sable wagon and the SD1 from the first pic please?

    I've got a 1:32 Jadatoys GTR from the Fat and Furryus range. Amazing detail for around £13 if I remember correctly.

    As @flat4alfaposted earlier, JPS set for the gold one

    Not sure if I have the F1 car as I kept taking them apart as wheel donors
    I do have the Rancho that tows the red trailer he also ID'd earlier, but not the bikes

    Could be - I've been eyeing up a little job lot local to me and decided to grab it. Main point of interest being a slightly down at heal white K-7

    It came with mostly Corgi single seaters that will either be flogged on or become parts donors. Tippex finish on the (well timed) Yardley McLaren is quite special. That and the red Surtees have screwed on bases,  presumably the work of a former keeper

    Went away abroad to Cornwall for two weeks.  Got back and the door mat had multiple you-were-out Post Lady cards.
    All got redelivered today!
    Corgi D2D Club Porsche and the figures arrived

    Crikey I was a bit click happy in July too....  Dinkys and Corgis from a seller who had everything from 99p start and ended at odd times in the middle of the day, so did well there for £16 the lot

    Also this model kit, which will probably interest @Spottedlaurel
    I hope to (when get round to it, as got a pile of unmade kits up on shelf again) build into a 1:32 slot car in the traditional Hakosuka GTR silver but with a gloss black bonnet.

    Saw first one of these at a show in Tokyo and loved seeing in the flesh.  This was ~25 years ago and they were iconic and valuable even then

    Remember the Corgi Renault 5 chat the week?  Never ever had a 5.  Anyhow, fancied this Alpine one because of the tidy stickers and THAT INTERIOR

    It has opening things which a helmeted dude is inspecting

    Even better than that, it was 99p

    It's all your fault.

    Will update shortly, once I've gone through all the boxes. By which time I'll have decided that I can't part with 90% of them all!

    With thanks to @Tenmil Socket, there can be another round of WHO DID IT WORSE ?
    In the left corner:  The Corgi Rockets Morgan Plus 8
    In the right corner: The Majorette Serie 200 Morgan Plus 8

    The Corgi had a short life, just 1970-1972 as a Rocket and 1971-73 as a Whizzwheel.  This is one of the earliest Rocket examples (if the chassis is original!) as it has the all-black wheel set.  It is missing the steering wheel, but apparently many left the factory without one...

    The Majorette spanned a much longer lifetime through 1979-04.  This red example apparently dates to 1986-87. 

    Interesting to note the Majorette has the second fuel filler, but there are only 6 bonnet side louvres (there should be 8 ) and the bonnet top louvres were never chromed on a real car; perhaps they though it a good idea to brighten it up by carrying the brightwork through. 

    The Corgi has slightly lower quality casting, but the 'Solarbrite' red paint must have wound-up the giffers in the owner's club, so that's a good thing.

    Two lugs AND two rivets make the Corgi win the build strength event.
    Corgi Scaled to 1:55, Majorette scaled to 1:50
