I would have to go look page by page but I think you may be correct.

Pg 4 and Pg 5 both have a few buses posted by RoutemasterNL of course. I am sure there are others.

While acknowledging RoutemasterNL. Dinky Jay had some while Janwerner and DinkyCollect have posted excellent examples of combinations and there are more scatted among these pages. Cheers.

Yes, I only had time to look at the first 4 pages and knew there were more.

Here is another nice combination of the Dinky 150 Rolls Royce Silver Wraith. I have done a few in the past years. All but the red and white ones and the Blood and Custard one are in my collection. I still have one more to do. Just trying to decide what colors.

Thanks James. I like doing these cars as they have such beautiful lines. I think the one I have here to do will be two tone blue this time. Light top with dark bottom.

Wolter, your pictures are not showing. They system has changed and we can no longer use the picture uploader from there. You need to use. postimages.org/
Easy to use, and pick the Hotlink for Forums, the third from the bottom of the list the program makes. Would love to see your work.

Great, nice to see pictures. Now all you need to do is use the "Quick Reply" button on the bottom right. That will take all the annoying HTML code out of your messages. Starting a new thread will still give you the HTML though.

Those wagons look great. Thanks for showing us. The ambulance and the Military ambulance both really look the part and nice to see you did not put alloy hubs on the military one. That makes it so much more realistic
Your white stripe on the blue Rambler, did you do that by hand or mask it off? I ask because it looks very even.

I did not remember how it all had to be done.
Computers are not my thing.

Regards - Wolter.
