I said on the Telsalda topic that I had lost my interest in doing my models, I bought a couple of repainted Dinky's to get me back doing things, I also bought a Spot On Zodiac a while back & as this morning we had no rain , I got to work , here is the triumph 1800 & the Riley , the Zodiac will be in the Spot on Topic.

I'll post these photos of my collection as an appreciation of fine toys, and the fun I've had collecting and restoring them for 50 years. Last night my workshop and office burned down, and all of these were lost. no one was hurt, but I'm very sad, a lot of equipment I appreciated has been lost, including a [real] Cessna airplane I've owned for 35 years. So appreciate your collections, and know that their value has increased a little with this loss. I have rebuilding to do, but think I have come to the end of my toy collecting...

Oh no - this is so sad. You had so many cases of wonderful old diecast. Thank goodness no one was hurt but you must be suffered so right now. Thanks for letting us know. I will be praying for you to come out of this dark tunnel as soon as you can. I am so so sorry for your loss.

I am really sorry for losing the collection you collected over the years.

So sorry Toy Jim to read your post. A lifetime of collecting - heartbreaking.

Terrible, terrible news. So sorry to hear. I would be devestated and yet my collection pales in comparison. I don't know what words to offer for support.
