Recommended Posts

Great thread! Too bad about all the missing pics, though. I have a few in the display. I'll see if I can get 'em posted a bit later.

I always liked the old AMT '65 Chevelle wagon.  I sold this one on the auction site a few years ago.

I built this '60 Plymouth wagon many moons ago:

I might consider a redo on it.

This Alternomad was fun to build:DSC03899-vi.jpgDSC03900-vi.jpg

This '66 Chevelle wagon is the latest in my display;

This one represents my first ever attempt at chopping a top on a model.

Simple resin curbside I did about 15 years ago.

The green is custom mixed and the woodgrain is handpainted.

I love that 850! I want to get one to make a replica of my friends 850 but those kits are pretty pricey.

Yes I see the 850R race version on ebay UK on a very regular basis at over £50, nearly 3 times the price of the original kit, one that I built when they first came out! As a race/airfield marshal at Silverstone circuit I was there on the launch day.

We don't see many Hotwheels here because they are so expensive. There was an article in another Model magazine showing a guy in Asia and his collection of customised Hotwheels, they seem to be quite cheap in the USA but here they are about £10 each! Expensive for such a small diecast model.

Wow that crazy. In Canada they are around $1.50

I'll check that out! We have a medium size Tesco here and I don't see any diecasts there at the moment. They had a few diecasts last year but not the quality of Hotwheels.
