Well SF sells them in Plastic but being made in plastic makes the price about £3.10 each instead of the £2.00 he asks for the metal grilles for the 150 RR.

<p>The majority of these are Norev plastic models. I really have to control myself to not buy too many. The Italians models on the right are so beautiful.</p>
<p>But also the the Dinky Renault Floride, one of the prettiest cars ever made.</p>
<p>The Morris is a Politoys copy made in Mexico by McGregor, pretty rare as far as I know.</p>
<p>The Simca 1000 with the white walled tires is a Minialuxe from France, another great brand for authentic and old models.</p>

The Green Renault 12s is a Renault Pilen, a Dinky copy as far as I know but very well done, great paintjob

They all look very nice and street cars are some of the best sellers. Specially when they are relatively new issues as lots of collectors have or had one.

Are these all plastic Norev models?
That is quite the collection you have there if so.

Re: Just arrived... 5 months, 3 weeks ago #68

<p>Yes, they are all plastic Norevs, with one exception - a Minialuxe Panhard &amp; Levassor Skiff Labourdette.</p>
<p>The photo is already more than a year old and the collection has grown since...<br />Time for a re-enactment? I'm sure I can re-enact the being plastered bit quite ealisy.</p>
<p>I have no self control.</p>

Besides, the photo I posted earlier was taken in November 2018.

This one was taken in March 2018.




So much for self discipline.

<p>My first purchase of 2020 arrived in the mail today. I have been looking for a decent priced Dinky 215 Ford GT for a couple years on and off. I found one last week and bought it. All in price of just under $30.00 US. Most are over $50 just for the toy. Not bad condition and all is there. Jewel headlights instead of the flat covers and it has the holes in the base for the plinth if it came that way originally as not all did. Some had the holes with no insert for the screw. Others have no hole at all. Gold engine and front wishbone suspension and the paint is still nice. There are chips all over from play wear but none are bad. Just the misplaced decal on the rear and I am not sure if I will replace it or not. NO idea if that is factory or not but I would think so as it is not a restoration. All decal looks the same color Anyway, here she is.
