Many thanks all, I have just put the no. plates on & stuck the base, I have had no. plates for a few years & had to cut the rear to make a square one. Job done have enjoyed doing this.

Looking at my VW the play wear is similar only mine took a beating to the bumpers










I restored this Vauxhall FB Cresta a couple of years ago & as i found my sets of no. plates out yesterday for the Fiat ,I have finally finished it

very nice resto. That Vauxhall looks very familiar, any chance Opel made it as a Kadett? Or am I totally wrong?

Opel did make a similar model  Dinky made a model of the Holden Sedan which is similar, I have one some where minus its bonnet.

Dinky's Holden , Vauxhall 101 and Viva









The Holden and 101 are the comparable to the Opel Record and the Viva is the same category as the Opel Kadett

They featured a Kadett on "Top Gear" Richard Hammond drove it on one of their chalanges,  I think Dinky made a model of this. The Holden I have is blue with an off white roof.
