MINIATURE SHITE HOARD DISPOSAL: 13-05-19 More new photos

Recommended Posts

Messrs L and Laurel you have private message. Mr DVee8 the BMW is on hold and Mr Tidybeard I will swap the Cadbury Double Decker for a quantity of chocolate, or a small number of new style pound coins that can be exchanged for confectionery.


I think this lot is about the last of it, for now anyway - there is some tattier Corgi/Matchbox and Majorette stuff at my parents' place which I will retrieve eventually.




First up, the "project Sierras" loosely reassembled.  MAY 2019 - BOTH SOLD




Superkings Unimog, amazingly the figure and lamp-post have stayed together with it since the early eighties.  MAY 2019 - SOLD






Now this is one I will regret selling, fantastic "garage transporter" from about 1986. Matchbox designed this one really well!




Renner Espace from Guisval, 1-43 scale, with a strange drop-down tailgate. 26-10-17 GUISVAL ESPACESTIC SOLD







More bus shite, Sunderland and Newcastle Metrobuses, a couple of the same that I repainted (badly) age 15, and a London example in that nice Airbus livery they had for a while.  MAY 2019 ALL BUSES SOLD








A couple of EFE models missing the outer packaging, and a very smart Dennis Dart in the Lothian colours of a decade ago. 26-10-17 BRADFORD DECKER AND LEA VALLEY MK1 POINTER SOLD, LOTHIAN BUS ALSO SOLD


Hurry, before my son finds them and plays multiple model car pile ups!

The trailer of that 'garage transporter' was later offered as a cradle to carry a wildly out-of-scale coastguard boat. Tractor unit was Merc for that, too.


Edit: Actually, I'm RONG. It's very similar, but not the same.




Have a free bump, anyway.


Good luck with sale!

Just as an update for anybody who's not yet received their goodies yet - I entrusted the job of posting them out to my wife but found out an hour ago that she clean forgot to visit the post office until yesterday lunchtime, so they're on their way a few days later than planned. Profuse apologies and rest assured I will be asking her to deep clean the interior of my manky old new £40 Volvo as punishment.


There are a few of you who have had PM from me, please check your in boxes.


Also, would anybody be interested in unboxed Matchbox and Corgi cars from the 1970s and 1980s, mainly the "Juniors" size but a few of the "Superkings" scale as well (i.e. like the red and silver Sierras earlier in this thread). These are in various states of playworn though some later ones are in good condition and there are the odd few still in the box such as a Rover 800 police car.




Picture nicked from an eBay seller who reckons its 45 Quid's worth! Obv I'm not after anywhere near that much for it.


I'll try and get some photos of the others next time I'm at my parents place, there must be at least 100 there.

No idea what the Concorde is worth. Think its 1-200 scale. PM me an offer! Also forgot to mention that there's a good few Majorette cars in there, Renner 18, Peugeot 604, Chrysler Alpine, mk1 Clio, etc etc etc

I don't want to insult you with a low offer, let me know what you're thinking and if we're in the same ballpark haggling will commence :D

Got some photos earlier.  I think this is your lot as far as boxed Corgis go, the Rover is very much better than the Escort in terms of both the car and the box:




The unboxed Corgis are in some cases very "used":




The FX4 is a bit better and the tow truck is a Matchbox Superking:




The other Corgi/Superkings are all in regular use by my son when he visits my parents, but he's careful with them (left to right - Escort mk3, yellow 2CV, 911, XJ6, mk1 Polo):




The box contains a Matchbox caravan that I think would have come with the XJ6 originally, Ford Transcontinental car transporter with a green Renner 14 just visible inside, a Britains tractor/trailer, Corgi Renner 5 and 11, plus a couple of Matchbox artics:




Right so this is some of the smaller stuff, amongst others there's a white Renner 5, silver Citroen CX, white De Tomaso Pantera, blue Merc S Class, green Beetle, white Range Rover, orange/blue Merc 608, blue Ford Model A van in Kellogg's Rice Krispies livery...




...green Mk4 Cortina, blue Chrysler Alpine, yellow Lambo Countach, orange BMW CS, white Citroen Dyane, pink Mk1 Capri, grey Peugeot 604, blue R5 sans tailgate, red Datsun Z, red Mini, orange Fiat Ritmo, yellow Renner 18 taxi.




Bit of planeshite as well, including a slightly badly-built "Red Arrow" Hawk kit.






Plus some newer ones (XR4i, Camaro, F40, XR3i and E30 cabrios)




(Clio, Volvo 760, XM, Renner Extra, Tipo, 405, Renner 25)




Some Dinky Army stuff, this looks quite a bit older




And a snap-together kit of a Fiat Uno, which I must have got bored with and "decorated" using a Tipp-Ex pen at some point, the shame.




There's a couple more carry cases of small Matchboxes etc which I will dig out another time.

      My Compact is up for sale again, MOT until November.
      Manual, 2l turbo diesel, 165k miles.

      I've replaced a load of stuff over the years, been meticulous with servicing. Brand new turbo, crank pulley, injectors, inlet seals, handbrake mech, vortex filter etc). It had a new BMW battery from dealer a couple of years ago. New black kidney grilles. New spare wheel, toolkit, books, wallet, first aid kit box etc
      Swirl flaps in the inlet have been blanked. Has black M-sport alcantara interior, with bucket seats (fully adjustable) and leather bits. It's really clean inside and out. Cool fold out rear windows like old Japanese cars but they’re auto electric powered
      17" E90 alloy wheels with four 5 month old Landsail tyres
      Two keys, service/manuals, dealer keyring, etc.

      The only things wrong with it:
      the glow plug ECU is reporting a fault.
      The front bumper is stone chipped.
       It has always started first turn of the key in whatever weather in the four years I've had this, so I'm sure the glow plugs are working, but it's just giving an error. It has had this fault in INPA since I've had it.

      It shifts quite well with 150bhp, I've managed 70 - 80mpg on a gentle run over 200 miles, but always get an average of 60mpg. There's no rust on the car, it's pretty mechanically sound I've done close to 70k miles in it I think. Only the crank pulley has failed on me in that time.

      First some background:
      I was brought up with no car interest, a car was transport and nothing more which resulted in a selection of poor cheap cars being the cars of my youth.
      Fast forward many years (just over 9 years ago) and I have a wonderful* Vauxhall Vectra estate to carry us about. Unfortunately it is crap and throws fault codes at us with nothing being there when it is checked (even at Vauxhall)
      As Mrs T is the main pilot of this chariot with the two little miss T's on board, it has to go.
      The hunt is on for the new steed to safely and comfortably carry the family around. I have a company car at the time so big journeys are not an issue.
      ebay is my weapon of choice to find the new family car. It has to be good value cheap for no other reason than I am tight.
      Weeks of research with lots of cars that are too expensive and too far away for easy collection end up in my watch list.
      Finally a possible is spotted in Fife. I go and have a look and find a poor looking but solid car. One previous owner and lots of history.
      The auction was to end on the Saturday at midday, we were going to be out! I decided on how much I was willing to gamble on it and on the Saturday morning I put in my max bid but straight away it went to my max bid, I was winning but it had three hours to go with no room for me to go up! We went out anyway.
      I spent the next three hours kicking myself for not bidding more while we were out as it was the first car I had seen that fitted my criteria. Fate was in charge.
      On returning home I go straight on ebay to find 'Congratulations.............'
      For the grand total of £500 I had just won this fine vehicle!

      It has 5 months MOT and after fitting seat belts in the rear for the girls car seats it is pushed into daily service.
      My gamble and subsequent use results in a perfectly reliable car that actually does what it is supposed to do.
      Even more importantly Mrs T loves it so a win all round.
      All my cars have names (most are earned over a bit of time) and this one is called 'Gwendolen' ( G reg car and from Wales originally. I hate the name but I am not going to argue)
      That sums up part one, more will be along later (probably much later)

      Copied over from Shite In Miniature...
      Note for future reference...  I've decided most of my Matchbox (-sized) cars can go.  It's a vast collection,   Most have been repainted at least once - by me, obviously.  My eyes and hand aren't good enough to do them again.  I've got way too many to list so ask if there's something you want and if I've got it, we can do a deal.  Most will be 50p each plus postage, so it'll make sense to build up a parcel.
      I thought it best to do this, then I'm not clogging up the main thread.  This could well go on for months.
