    Someone gifted me this Burago 1980's (I think) poster of 1:24 scale models. This is great but it's also a bad thing as I now want to collect them all!
    I have found the Range Rover (nice model this) and the Ferrari is on it's way. I think the Escort, 911 and BMW will be a lot pricier but if anyone see's any about please let me know.  Condition not really important tbh as long as they are intact.

    I had that Magirus as a kid, it would have been around 1986. It came in a set with a Unimog that had a foam cannon and a generator trailer, together with a selection of firemen.  A pretty cool toy by all accounts.

    I think of when I was a kid if I’d discovered Bburago City I’d have needed my trousers changing. I’d have shit myself in excitement as that was the type of thing just up my street.

    Don't make a replica of it in case someone paints it white.

    More done on the D today.   
    Here’s how it started.

     
    I’ve shortened the chassis a tiny bit more. Then made up some plastic sections to both fill the void in the middle of the chassis sections and join the two firmly together. 
    I used impact adhesive to glue it all together then fitted a spare BA nut and bolt through the whole thing just to hold it tight and secure. 
    The nut & bolt won’t be seen after it’s finished.

       
    I’ll hide the back one underneath by filling the area with chemical metal putty shaped to look like the gearbox!

        
    Next I cut out a T shaped piece to hold the front end of the cab and act as a floor to support the front end.

            
    This area is where the little pony engine for the mixer will sit - covering the screws.

       
    Inside the new floor piece sits on a ridge under the cab behind the front bumper which holds the height perfect. Then the original front body mount was reused by drilling a hole through the new floor and screwing together.

       

      
    I decided to double check the original Dinky interior would still fit. Which it didn’t! 
    I’ve obviously cut the front panel down so the interior is now also too big. Luckily though there’s a few strengthening ribs on the interior which can be cut off and sanded down to make it fit. 
    It also sits nicely onto the new floor.

       
    So here it is as of now.


    Tomorrow I’ll build the pony engine and fit that in place. 
    It also needs the back half of the front mud guards making. 
    Id like to try to alter the design of the front wheels too as they don’t look particularly ‘British’ in appearance. 
    Some of these D’s also had a skid plate fitted under the cab to protect the underside from damage on construction sites etc, which might look the part on this one. 
    Also needs a pipe adding from the water tank down to the back of the truck for a wash out hose. 
    Door mirrors need making and fitting. 
    Then paint!

    I’d be inclined to no mask so closely, it’ll build a ridge up which you’ll have the devils own work cutting through.

    It was simply a lifestyle choice, same as the rest of us make, for whatever reasons.

    Ha that’s just reminded me of when I had a Mercedes key ring on the set of keys I had for a Sierra when I’d be about 17 in the hope of fooling young ladies into thinking I had a Merc. What the fuck was I thinking... what planet was I on?
