Can do - cheers!

Also, I've a couple of others set aside for you from last year, if you still fancy them?

@DatsuncogC30 please

Sho' thing - will set that one aside for you. Thought that might tickle you!

Still have a very nice Matchbox ice cream van in the box with your name on it, if you're still interested?

IMG_20220113_165751.thumb.jpg.ae8b68168f47be1db9769e2e27b79857.jpg

Things got a bit much last summer, and I kinda lost track of where everything was...

Gaah! Can't believe I missed the Vanguards! Wouldn't mind the Vitesse Migraine and poo-brown Solara though, (if a buy now pay slightly later arrangement could be had...)

Oh yes, it can totally be arranged... as ever, I manage to pick the absolute worst times to be having a clear-out!

**EDIT - BOTH SOLD!!**

Not sure who makes these - but these 'Opel Car Collection' 1/43 models of the Senator and Monza each come in an absurdly oversized box with a GM part code on them.

664464718_IMG_20220113_1434502.thumb.jpg.979d6b8c305baa381319304b3666b374.jpg

The wiper's fallen off the Senator, but I've cunningly blu-tac'd it to the back of the box cos I'm out of superglue.

You can experience the joy of reattaching it for a mere £6, or both of them for £10.

Can’t believe I’ve missed this sale start as ironically I was collecting a metallic grey Volvo C30 from Hackney!
Could I please have, if not taken, the Espace, Fintail Taxi and the Merc 600.

Maybe others when I’ve reperused.

I missed the Cararama Ford Puma when I was on my way home in my Ford Puma 😂

Cararama police are 1/72 scale (or thereabouts...)

Apologies, I thought I'd found you a Polonez last year, or else I would have messaged you first!

I'll pass on the Carbonaras then, I can't really work in that scale any more, but thanks.  You did find me a Polonez, three in fact in various guises, but one can never have too many!

Hey DC, by all means pass the Polonez in Eddy's direction. His need is much greater than mine.

Thank YOU kind sir!

Not a bother - we'll sort something out, sure!

:)  You two are such lovely gents.  I hope to meet you both sometime.

These are made by Schuco. I've got the pair of them and they are some of the best 1/43 models I've ever seen. The regular Schuco packaged versions can regularly go for £40-£50 a throw.

More Corgi:

IMG_20220113_134900.thumb.jpg.9fe119731c86c53e351a4b23ccee2e59.jpg

Definitely* didn't forget about this one.

NI Hospitals Authority Daimler ambulance, in excellent nick.

Bought because I know the real-life ambulance this was modelled from, and then I wasn't sure what to do with it.

£10 on this one too.

I'm trying to be good and not put my hand up for any of the wonderful stuff DC is offering today. CSW has just saved me from 'having' to buy those lovely Opels, phew!

Did purchase a few things yesterday on a quick trip into town:

IMG_8457.thumb.JPG.f9d4684d2552e566b642ad97e769fd30.JPG

Majorette 300ZX was 50p from a charity shop. I have a red one already.

HW Prelude was from a pound shop (but was £1.50) and the rest were from Tesco. They'd had a couple of new cases of Matchbox in too, but there was nothing in there that was of overwhelming appeal.

I had a feeling the Prelude and R390 might have been duplicates, but happily not.

Got back into doing 1:24 stuff today:

Polished the brush-painted Humbrol enamelI applied over 35 years ago, should be dry enough by now. It's far from perfect, but the roof came up well and it's only meant to be a refresh of what I did all those years ago, not a new, squeaky clean build. Also brush-painted the hood scoop and attached it to the bonnet.

Lots of foil brightwork to do now.....
