Shite in Miniature II

Onto VW stuff. This is my find of the week, some of you may remember me netting a Tomy AFX set from this boot sale last year, minus the MK2 Golf. That box of pound a car vehicles included this so I walked away grinning

I've also been trying to track down one of these Majorette buggies, one of a number of Majos I scored from a seller today

Pulled this Darda out of that huge 3 for £1 pile, should help refill the coffers

Can't put my finger on why this Corvette looks so familiar, marked Playskool

I'd seen it yesterday,but left it because of the missing front bumper.However,Steve Flowers sells reproductions,so that'll be another part to add to the list when I get round to placing an order.

Chrome Darda buggy! Want!

Last lot, I bought shedloads of Matchbox as they were cheap, only a few are new to me or unusual

The white Fandango is pleasing as I only had a tatty one. Fire Chief I had but has gone AWOL. 

Forgot to include this plastic MK1 Golf cab with the VW stuff, looks like the Early Learning Centre (we think) MK3 Escort I found a while ago, but is marked Viking Plast Sweden

Lastly this Corgi F1 has little marking on the base - part of a set of sold under another name?

First boot sale visit of the year here too this morning as we actually managed a whole 40 seconds or so when it wasn't fucking raining. Utter, utter shit. One of these Sundays I should get my arse in gear and take a look at Ayr market, it's not very far and it couldn't be any more of a waste of time and petrol than Dumfries. This was the only thing to come home with me today,it just seemed a little too nice to leave it clattering around in the 50p tub.

The Land Rover Hi-Cap is one from the Early Learning Centre, I had one as a kid. Quite scarce actually.

Which has grown my finds pile a bit!

That pile of diecast is a dream come true. If I found that I'd throw myself into it and make snow angel movements.

That's a Foden S80. I had the tipper but stupidly sold it. Great model.

I went back for a second rummage, couldn't resist. He bought them as a job lot to sell on, who knows where from or how much he paid. There were plenty more I should have just scooped up at 33.3p each

That Mercury must be up there as one of the most long lived castings from Lesney, with some changes it seemed to go on forever

After yesterday's boot sale shitshow,today I found myself visiting Hawick for the first time. Not sure what was going on with the traffic but the southbound A7 was diverted through the middle of the town ,which was handy as otherwise I'd not have been sitting at the lights in a position to notice a shop window full of old diecast. Even better,there was a Sprinter-sized gap by the pavement which it seemed rude not to take advantage of. Some rather nice stuff but his prices were all over the place, I had a closer look at a tatty Spot-on 105e Anglia but he wanted thirty quid and even by my low standards it wanted bumpers and a repaint. Have a crappy pic of some of the window display,the silver thing under the gold Lincoln was a Polistil Volvo 164,which is a new one on me. Typically,it was missing bits but he still regarded it as worth forty pounds..I didn't leave empty-handed (some of you know my complete lack of willpower) but that seemed much too salty to me. The Dinky A105 was rather tempting but again rather too much for me.

I know it's pointless repeating endlessly the complaints about old-school antiques places and their lack of pricing awareness, but surely five minutes on the internet would pay dividends in terms of actually flogging stuff, rather than have it clog up your window for years and years. Meh. Anyway, those 164s are pretty common and £20 would buy you a mint boxed one if you were so inclined. Unboxed for a bit less, ie: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/POLISTIL-S20-VOLVO-164E-1-25-SCALE-MODEL-CAR-MADE-IN-ITALY-/234553629438

Without knowing any of that,it just seemed bloody expensive for what it was. And, being Polistil,of course there were bits missing. I'm not particularly into them so it's not surprising I hadn't seen one before.

A bit disappointed that the front spoiler was broken,but it's not bad apart from that 😀
