How much for the matchbox swing wing plane?


I was at my sons nursery the other day and he had taken my old swing wing down and another little boy took a shine to it. He was upset when my lad took it back so being nice I ordered him his own one on Ebay. However, I've just been informed that I can't just get William one, I need to get Charlie one too as they are a trio.

Has the Lego gone? If not please let me know a price!


I ended up eBaying it to help pay for Christmas 2018.  Harbour went for £200 and the Monorail made £650!!!  Crazy but the stuff's become investment material.  I've more (lots more) in my parents' attic to gradually retrieve and do something with.

Do you mean more die-cast etc?

No, I think most of the diecast is out and visible in the photos on this here thread (though since sold a few things locally via Facebook etc. ) but I found a couple matchbox placca kits and an old Star Wars thing at the weekend. There are approx 20,000 bits of 1980s lego still to be dealt with however!

Evening mini-shite fans.  Right as it was nice weather here this afternoon I decided to dig everything outta my attic to get some decent photos of what's left (A lot more than I thought was left).  Seeing as the new forum appears to have shrunk all the old images right down in dimensions for some reason.












I did end up sticking some of this stuff on eBay for strong money in the hope that someone would blindly hit the Buy-It-Now button, amazingly three 1/18 Bburago cars recently went that way for £34.95 apiece but may I point out that CONSIDERABLE Shiters Discount is available, so that I can get a bit of my attic back and put some cash in the pot towards a Lego train set of some sort for my son's next birthday.


Alternatively, I'm open to crazy offers for everything in the photos as a job lot if somebody fancies selling them onwards and making a bit of money?  The Matchbox Tyrrell and Military kits are unbuilt by the way, and there's still a load of late 70s/early 80s Matchbox/Corgi/Majorette at my parents' place.

Wow, any chance if the 1.24 Fiat Punto, Tipo and Uno Italia '90 and a couple of purple Milka Fiesta vans? Might be interested in the orange 1.24 thing in the same photo as the Milka vans.

If you have got any West Mids/Shropshire/Worcestershire busses too....

Also do I spy a Majorette Volvo 740, Fiat Tipo , Renault Extra and Ford Sierra in a box with some other stuff? Also what is the Matchbox superking thing with the bulldozer?

Also interested in 70s/80s Majorette/Matchbox/Corgi stuff in bulk if it's not been snaffled already.

Hi gang, thanks for the interest!! OK let's go through these one by one,


ZEL  There's other Majorette etc stuff at my parents' place.  What I'll do is get some photos and post em up here in the next day or so.

Lord 800 Due to a shiter enquiry by PM the 1:24 Punto/Uno IT90 are provisionally SOLD but you can have a couple of Milka Couriers and the orange thing is the door-less Renner 14 that I think is on page 1 of the thread.  Don't think I've any Greater Birmingham buses, unless you want some Mk2 Metrobuses for repainting?  EDIT - 1:24 Tipo also still available!

SPLIT PIN Nice of you to think of CMS but alas an early PM from a non-Scottish shiter means the Volvo estate is provisionally SOLD!! Also the Z1 kit is already built-up, though it's yours for an insultingly low offer if you think you can do owt with it.

EDIT - Z1 pic attached



CMS regrettably as above re the Volvo.  You're correct about the Majorette vehicles!  Again I'll have a hunt through what's still at my parents' place and report back.  The big Superkings set is the Shell garage transporter, pics earlier in the thread.  I'll copy them back here in a while so that they're easier to see.


EDIT There has been a Volvo 700 Estate-related development!! PM incoming.

      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.
