Shite in Miniature II

Recommended Posts

Parcel arrived from Lobster's Emporium of Diecast Tat, and ferkin' 'ell is it nice, 1/24 scale Sierra Cosworth saloon from an Italian partwork. Surprised it has an acrylic case, makes it a doddle to display, and I bet this gets serious scene tax very quickly. Knocks the 1/25 Schabak into a cocked hat

Love the Corty - I have bought a set of those decals to do my Mk2 Dinky as a Safari car.....  That CF looks interesting, what is it?

The CF is a Matchbox.

There is a mechanism inside that when it rolls along the Accident sign on the roof lights up red,

also a stop sign appears in the rear screen.

 

The Cortina is quite playworn,but in decent condition,sadly the roof mounted spotlight is broken off though.

This is an Atlas Edition Dinky copy. Atlas try and get you to buy other stuff but you can just opt out and pay for the model, which in this case was £2.99.

 

I can live with the fact that is says Mattel in the base! I am very impressed with it!

 

I've often wondered what the catch was.  Sounds like a Readers Digest type outfit  :-D .

Just in today:

 

I got the 1/43 Italia 90 Bburago Fiat Tipo when I was a kid but always wanted the 1/24 version. Courtesy of Sierraman of this parish I now have one and it's MINT!

 

Also delivered today was my Atlas French Dinky Toys Renault 12. It wasn't from one of their 'offers' but at £8.50 direct from China I couldn't say no. I have wanted this model since I saw one at a swapmeet which, at £55, was way out of my price range. I am very pleased with it!

Let's hope so eh? I bought all of them and I reckon me seeing quite so many of them sat in the unit could get old pretty quickly.

 

In other news - Corgi cancelled a fuck tonne of stuff they have announced for 2016 including, rather oddly, the Vanguards Stag.

They'll survive. As for most of the models, most will go ahead. They given (delayed) release dates for a lot which given timescales would suggest an awful lot has already been manufactured. There was obviously an issue holding up production which we can probably guess.

My first attempt at photographing model cars.....

 

This is a 1/43 Tatra 603 that I've had for a few years. I have another identical one which came in a 'Cold War Series' display box. Make?  Nothing underneath it.  No doubt someone will know.

Thanks for the info. Luckily my knowledge of the real thing is somewhat limited, so I'm just happy to have a generic '70s American 4dr kit. I don't think there are many others?

 

When I made my 1:32 resin bodyshells there were almost no plastic model kits available, most were created from 3D models.

 

Who wouldn't want an AMC, a few Dodges, a Buick and a Caddy?

 

That 1:43 Tatra is made by IXO :)

IXO, yes, that rings a bell.  Thanks.

Certainly not miniature but still shite. Can anybody advise me if these are collectable and have any value please?

 

They are both Triang tinplate pull along, quite large, about 18" long X 10" high. Scruffy condition and the van has no back door.  Many thanks.

After weeks advertising these without any response at all I finally sold them yesterday for £60.00 'sight unseen' to a tin plate collector who I met whilst browsing in a junk shop.
