Thanks Niall , I have some Spot-On road sections somewhere & would have liked to have used them when I set the road scene up in" some of my spot on toys "topic, when I find them I will make a street scene up. The book has really captured me as I always liked Spot-On models.

Andy that garage is fantastic.


I'm going to try and get a garage for a nice diorama scene. Going to be tough to find one.

Excellent collection, I've seen spot on in a totally different light!

A toy garage is probably one of the best ways to display toy cars, I just have no room & sadly the garage gets stored away.

They are good buys Niall, the VW is a sort after model seen wreakers go for good money. I bought a Telephone box  & a Fiat to restore.

great finds, well done. Is the boat and trailer belonging to the VW?

Re: Spot On 7 years, 9 months ago #25

The VW is the very last Spot on made in Northern Ireland... and only available for a very short time...No spares available of the roof rack ...


The boat and trailer I don't have and the container truck is also tough to get...


Hopefully the start of a good run in 2014....I have another Thames trader on the way later in the month....

This set (#3) is  offered on Marktplaats (Marketplace) in the Netherlands.


Reported as "in new condition", either for sale (but not for just a few hundred Euros), or exchange.

He has some nice Solido's too Gerrit
But I dare not ask what he wants for this set.

You were right Niall, the Spot On Rolls Royce banger I bought just before New Year is structurally sound, the casting is just okay.


Apparently someone dipped this car in thick paint, took it to the beach and rolled in the sand. It came with 4 truck type tires of which one has a different size. If anyone needs these  tires, give a sign there are free to get.


I will repaint it and maybe give it rear wheel spads. I am also thinking of applying big Lucas headlights, but only if I am sure I can make them fit properly.
