  1. Like this ? build thread - http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/topic/108150-1984-ford-transit-esci-124/
  2. Your 300 ZX is from an early 1990's Matchbox series called 'Lightning Wheels' & each model came with a plastic cylinder to store the model in, which had a spec sheet detailing the spec of the real vehicle the mdoel was based on. I think there was an F40, & a Porsche of some kind in the same series, plus a few more models no doubt!
  3. Havent a clue on the engine origin, possibly a Matchbox Kingsize dragster model (like K38 Gus Gulper Mustang model) That model looks sweet, looks so 'right' although maybe a subtle roof chop would improve the aesthetics? What colour scheme are you planning for it?
  4. The body is a Corgi 'Wild Honey' dragster, dont know the origin of the chassis / wheels though ?
  5. @sierraman there will be some matchbox models at some point (might be a little while as I have hundreds of models to sort out, all whilst trying not to think of excuses to keep them).
  6. Begining a massive sort out & slimming down of my diecast collection (more to be added for sale when I get time to sort them out)
  7. Bad shit happens in threes, right? 1. Saturday 9th May (mid PM) I notice there is some water seeping from under the floor joint cover strip between the hallway & downstairs loo. Thats odd thinks I, although the floor had been mopped recently (we have vinyl flooring downstairs). Curiosity gets the better of me & I prise up the joint cover & find that the concrete sub floor in the loo & the felt backing of the vinyl is piss wet! I trace the leak to a 'slightly more than weeping' connection on the pipework for the cistern inlet (the inlet is on the left hand side of the
  8. Dont know if the info here is any good - https://www.fordwiki.co.uk/index.php/Front_bumper_removal or - https://talkford.com/community/topic/115402-front-bumper-removal-procedure/ Good to see one of these being saved, cant remember the last time I saw one on the road

  10. If you were going smaller scale for an Escort Estate model, maybe use a Matchbox Escort cabriolet as a basis for the model, as the rear panel & lights are already the right type for an estate version (pic from Google)
  11. Gently rub a cotton bud dipped in non-acetone nail varnish remover over the decals & they should disappear!
  12. I remember having a matchbox Saab 9000 in racing livery (white body with red, yellow & orange stripes & number 22 on the bonnet & doors) - tho I dont think it was based on a genuine BTCC car.
  13. Does anyone remember the Matchbox Lightning Wheels series, from the late 80's - early 90's? The models had printed 'refelctions' on the windows & wheels & were finished in vaious garish bright pastel colours that were in fashion in the late 80's - early 90's. Each model came with a storage tube that had a tech spec printed sheet on the side. I had the Nissan 300ZX model (not mine in the pic), indeed I might still have it somewhere! There was a series of models, I dont know what the others were though.
  14. Do you want £250 worth of silver Fever? (looking at the stae of the interior you could catch something far worse than just a fever.....) https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201907220342947?radius=35&price-to=1000&postcode=pe261uu&sort=price-asc&onesearchad=Used&onesearchad=Nearly New&onesearchad=New&advertising-location=at_cars&page=1
