    Wow! Local Morrisons are on top of their Hot Wheels game at the moment,
    Check out this wacky little funster,

    Nice recolour for the gasser wagon,

    I think this an old-as-the-hills casting, but I've not seen a Cobra in the line up for years so this is a welcome release. A nice, fairly tasteful job they've done too.

    Another outing for the Datty pick up. Nice matt paint job, and still love these steelies,

    And a couple of modern Germans. Not everyone's cuppa but I think the new Merc A Class looks nice in red,

    And this seems to be one of the sought-after ones on the HW sites,

    To be honest there were a few more there I would have had, but the 'nip in for bread and milk' shop was starting to get expensive...

    The old ABC cinema, at the Linthorpe Rd/Borough Rd crossroads, Middlesbrough. The 'Now Showing' sign gives a clue to the year!
    A veritable smorgasbord of shite, with treats like the Pug 504, Lada, the Sabre 500 wheeltrim-shod Mini, the Rostyled-up Ascona B and the arse end of a Cleveland Transit Fleetline.

    Think it's pretty clear the Welly is copied from the YatMing - which I think is also my favourite

    Sadly things didn't go well for the little Aggro after I owned it. My mate bought it and did the small bits of welding (a little bit at the sill ends, under the sill covers and replaced the lower rear corners with NOS panels) it needed, then put it up for sale , just needing paint. Predictably, the massive cuntfunnel that bought it raped it for the engine then resold it as a rolling shell covered in primer and with the mint sorrel brown interior ripped out. Next thing I know, my brother sends me a pic of the V8 Allegro racer, with the message "isnt this near the reg number of the one you had?" Errr...
    I've seen pictures of the build, and considering the race car was apparently built on a red shell, I'm not sure how much of my old one is in there. But in the corner of the workshop, another 2 door shell in gold and primer can just be seen. I'm just glad it lives on in some form as its future post engine-rapeage didn't look good.

    A few week's back I received these gem's courtesy of @Petrolize bedroom clearout.
    Apologies on the poor phone pic's, I'd tired multiple times but these are the best of the worse! 

    Petrolize said these two used to pull a Majorette Caravan when he and his Sister were kids. So I thought I'd put them both to good use with towing my Siku Trailer.

    Tesco's had some new Matchbox in. 
    There were a couple of classics such as a 40s Cadillac and 2 modern cars (a Mercedes of some sort and a Porsche Panamera) and one left of these:



    Looks pretty good I think.

    Here's the latest bunch to go under the drill...

    I'm going to have to get a tin of Valencia Blue, if I can, for the Herald.  What you see on it now is an unholy mix of Humbrols, made by hand and eye a long time ago.

    Inside the back of the Ecurie Ecosse wagon.  I didn't have to drill this one, it's held together by some sort of clip arrangement. 

    Front screen is one of my home-made specials, held in by elderly Plasticine.  The original was broken when I got it, used.  Lucky to get the ramps and side door, I suppose.  I haven't decided whether to leave the name cast into the sides, or file/grind it off.  At the moment I haven't got a tub big enough to strip it in, so it's a bit academic.
    Now then... a nice parcel arrived from Mr Spottedlaurel of this parish.

    As a former Proton owner, what better to have my breakfast coffee in than a Proton mug?

    ...And a few rather nice models, which are now on my shelves upstairs.

    And to finish off, the latest batch of completed restorations.  The driver in the Corgi Austin Healey is Roger Moore, salvaged from the Volvo P1800.  Windscreens on both the sports cars are by me, cut from the moulded plastic that so many things come in these days.

    Parcel arrived from @Spottedlaurel yesterday, Cheers!
    My friend had the Datsun when we were kids in the 1980s and I used to love it as the bonnet popped up like when you release the mechanism on a real car.
    I also had the Sierra as a kid, given to me by a classmate, long gone now. I can't recall if it was part of the BP or a separate Golden Wonder promotion. Corgi seemed to lean heavily on this channel in the 1980s which we've discussed previously.

    What an idiot! Posts without uploading pics...  Tonight's Morrisons finds,

    I like this Monte Carlo casting. I haven't seen this release in any of the previews so was a nice find.

    The Jaaaag is now in a fetching sparkly version of BRG, which suits it nicely.

    The newer Civic Type R in a nice Touring-car style livery. Beats all those 793-odd Bisimoto-liveried  versions of the previous shape one...

    And on the subject of Honda, the big find of tonight,

    Prelude!!!

    A little honey this one, love the pimptastic red interior, and great Tampos front and rear,

    Still hunting the gold 944 though!
