Yes, we know it's a little bit of a contradiction in terms, but here's where you can talk about Norev, Minialuxe, Siku, Polistil, Tomte, Auburn, Sun Rubber or any other ready-made model car that's made of plastic or rubber. Hey, they're still cast in dies!

<p>I just got this very nice boxed "ice blue" version of the Zephyr , I have this rare colour already but couldn't resist buying this one, it had a rear door handle missing but I had a spare one.It has a very small chip to the boot lid but it does not take away the display value.</p>

Nice cars and are typical British Styling from what we see here in North America. Always nice to get a second one of a rare car model. Nice score.

Spotted a Tri-ang Mimic 16M Two Berth Caravan (c64) in poor condition for sale on eBay today, thought Andy may be interested..

I think it's actually 1:35 rather than the electric, but never mind lol

I got another Vauxhall Victor this week, it is in good condition however it sadly has damage to the boot lid where it has possibly been dropped, someone has repaired it but they covered the boot in glue, I have successfully flat and polished this out, i will when the weather is better attempt to make a better job of the repair.

That will take a bit if work to repair. Is the rear bumper broken too? It seems to have a split in it. The front grille also looks cracked or split, at the top just left of center. Are these actual cracks or splits or just part of the castings.

The grill is shaped in the middle at the top to go with the bonnet lines , I will take a picture to show.
It is badly damaged but it does display well as the damage is to the rear, I am thinking of using filler to smooth over the cracks (like when I repaired the Zephyr police car) but I am concerned with painting it. I will have a good think.

I now see what your referring to on the grille matching the hood design. I took the recessed part as being cracked or broken on the left while that is not the case.

I hope this can be fixed somehow...

Nice car, told they had a lot of chrome on the real thing.

i will think of my best option to make this model good again.

It's been a while since anything has come up in these models but I got two Austin Healey's this week , I can make an almost complete one from the two the red one being the best.
