    Anyone still interested in these old GB stickers?
    I've got 2 ready to hit the printers. Its my first bash at something like this and the base photos i've managed to find are appalling quality so its taken hours to try and get each one into something even vaguely usable. The sizing is what it came out at to try and get the best oval match i.e. sticker oval to match the graphics oval.
    If they work out i'm planning on doing a few more.

    I have one on my R4. Old red R4 had one as well.
     

     
    Tbh it didn't bother anyone, even the people at Dover harbour liked it "bloody hell, not seen a Townsend sticker in years" etc.  TT were in general a very popular company prior to the Herald and everyone who commented seemed pleased to see it.
     
    I've got a spare one somewhere so when I get round to buying a scanner I can scan it (and a few others) if anyone wants copies.

    With a slight degree of risk that a gust of wind might blow it off, this is where most of the photos were taken, with a glamorous view of the bins and the Camry spares car and parts pile.

    Police version of the Siku Porsche 928 - I've noticed a lot of die casts of various makes have the driver's floor cut out as if a figure could go there, but there rarely is one, can anyone explain this?

    This is quite a funky set, Europ Assistance Solidos, got it mainly for the R4 van. Boom on the recovery truck is very nice

    Lovely post lady has just been.

    Getting a bit of deja-vu here...

    Well hello!

    So, another posh dealer model. Having got the saloon, it would be rude not to have the coupé. Same collection, so same nice packaging,

    Again, a lovely model, with premium levels of quality and detail,

    Loads to like at the rear, the boot hinges look like the real thing, the tiny screen washer, the rear heating elements are really fine, and look how delicate that rear wiper is. The Opel badge is a separate part, not tampo printed.

    Like the Senator, the interior is superb. Wood trim, seperate seat belts again, with buckles , speaker grilles in the rear shelf panels, little chrome ashtrays in the quarter panels.

    Again, nicely detailed underneath, slightly finer detailed around the front end than the Senator maybe,

    And the Autobahn stormers together. Didn't realise there was that much difference in the styling between the two, other than the obvious coupé styling, the front ends are also completely different,

    Funnily enough I’ve just ordered a Monza from the same series from our own @Mr Lobster’s eBay shop.
    Sadly they didn’t do the Monza in gold - or if they did they’re super rare. I went for green.

    Twingo now has moderately effective brakes. Only moderately though as they are pathetically small to start with. An upgrade would be an idea but... meh.
    Set of tyres and a service next I suppose.

    Now, question is, anyone know where I might get some 1:18 scale wheels similar to the ones on the big one.

    I like those old Victors.  Good save Triggs
    I ran this one three years back.  Don't think you ever saw it.  It's since been stripped and repainted properly

     
    The Vyvern mascot was to fill the holes a previous dork drilled to mount a Jaguar leaper!

    I know i posted about this on the News 24 thread but i thought i'd start it's own thread, just because.
    I've known the car for a few years as it's owner and his wife took it to all the local car shows and came to our East Coast Retros car meet every month without fail, sadly his lovely wife passed away in January and the owner couldn't bear driving it anymore so did what all grieving widows do and put it up for sale and bought a immaculate 1975 Jaguar XJ6L. This was where i got involved, it got posted onto my FB group for a good price, Mrs Trigger saw it and declared her love for it and i don't need much persuasion to buy a car!.

    The purchase was a bit odd, normally i wouldn't have gone under current circumstances but it was a good price and wasn't far away so i took the risk, i put a mask on, kept my distance and did all the payment via online banking and even did the V5 online, it was quite easy really, to save anymore risk though a friend who does car recoverys offered to collect it for me and swap it with my Marina and take that to a farm near my dads so that i didn't have to drive it.   


    It's very pretty! Mrs Trigger is over the moon with it too so that's extra brownie points!

    There's lots of little jobs to do, someone was excitable with the wood screws so I've got some stainless ones on order.


    There's a bit of rust here and there


    and the wings dented.

    But all in all it's very tidy for the money i paid, there's not a lot of old history with it but I do know it was a A reg once until it lost it's plate around 2003 time, the same time as it was involved in a  accident and became a donor car for Danny Hopkins in PC magazine but it was deemed too nice to break, someone did spend a lot of money on it back in 2007 though!.

    I've already started a few little jobs, the wipers have been swapped for original old stock chrome ones i had with new rubbers to replace the modern plastic ones with the ugly black clips.
     
    Front number plate straightened and a few bulbs replaced.

    and some stickers removed.

    I do plan on getting the wheels repainted, I'm thinking cream with the chrome caps although they need replacing too, underseal the underside, the steering is very wandery, not sure if that's the box or bushes yet and i definitely need to fit some front and rear seat belts but we both love it so car, Mrs T drove it today for the first time now it's insured and took to the 3 on the tree gearbox straight away which was good as it was her first time with that kind of box.
    I took it up the lane around the back for some photos with my nice camera.










    So there you go, and before anyone else asks, I still haven't decided on the headlight lips!
