HEYU models

I am in the Philippines at the moment and have never seen these before and although boxed look pretty cheap Chinese models. There appear to be ten but I have only found these four so far. If anyone is interested they are £1.50 each plus postage.

We found a Saturday boot sale - in fact thinking about it we could attend four per weekend as two are 10 am starts and the others are stupid o'clock 

Weirdest find was this Hong Kong plastic Beetle, not one I recognise

Another TF like the one Datsuncog sent me recently

And if you've got the black version

These Matchbox motorbikes often seem to be missing the panniers

Had to go outside for this one. I had a few Convoys as a kid but this one's unfamiliar. Ladder is a bit of a monster!

Found the tractor unit in a different tub to the trailer, both were mostly assorted kid crap but there were gems buried

what sort of condition coop does sir hanker after?

Sir is partial to the salvageable sort of lame duck!  The coop under discussion seems to be complete but probably in need of paint, which is an ideal condition.  I'm interested in almost any family-type or executive cars from the 50s to the 70s, especially American, or police.  I'm also interested in commercial vehicles, from a Minivan to a Mack truck.  All in approximately 1/43 please, and at scrap prices.  Show me whatcha got!

That's my favourite UK Dinky model. I wanted one for years before finding mine at a swapmeet in 1995.

Interesting to see that they change the number plate to coincide with that year. Mine is UVR576D. The 'I's in Dinky plates always make my teeth itch though.

Dinky did that for several years, which amused me because the real-life vehicle could have been replaced in the span of the model, so you'd get for example, a Mini with exposed door hinges but on a K suffix.  And yeah, the I in the INJ series always irked me too.  If I get one now I usually make it into a T or J.

Boxed Zodiac is cheap

I’d bet for £20 it’s been restored and a repro box.

I'm glad that sparked some interest - cos I bought it. Original and unrestored

I'd have snapped that up at that price. You'd get £50 minimum of Ebay for that.

And on the 1300 theme here's my contribution.
