Looks like some more nice condition Corgi models. The Yellow Triumph Acclaim is not very common, despite never wanting to own a real car of it, it's nice to see the models of it.

Yesterday the fleamarket started again in my hometown.


I have found these 3 Corgi cars,  a Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, a Volkswagen 1200 Saloon and a Corgi Cubs.


I could not resiste for a few euro's.

Super condition model and another favourite Corgi Toy from my past. Looks as if that should have cost you lots of Money!

Nice condition and hard to find at a good price like that.

I also have a Mini Cooper and a Citroën DS 19 but if i want to transfer them for the Monte Carlo cars i don't know what to do for the lights.

If you mean when you strip the paint off, I always take the lights out of their holders or body. Take the plastic holders (if any) out too as they will melt. You can use silver or gold paint behind the jewel if all the paint comes off the backs of them. I just replace the with new ones as I bought a bag full of various size jewels a few years ago now. 2mm to 5mm for about $5.00. There must have been about 300 jewels in the bag. I have sold most on eBay. They were Swarovski crystals too. Look in the crafting parts of eBay.


Here is a link to some 5mm gems. Not sure what size you want.

Looks like the Rover has been restored.

The rover has been restored. And what i mean is that i have a Morris Mini and a Citroën DS 19.


But if i want to restore them to look like the Mini and Citroën like the Monte








Carlo range i have to do something for the lights. I think like Nobleco said.

You just have to be careful to drill the present lights out and fit the proper jewels. I am sure if you hunt you can find some of the right size for cheap. Otherwise both Rob and Steve sell them in many sizes and colors.
