Do search on here you have to go to where you sign out in the top right hand corner. Click the drop down arrow and go to 'Settings' on the left side. From there Click on 'Preferences'. When you get there you will see black boxes on the left of your screen. Top is 'Forums' It is a fly-out, hover over it and at the bottom you will see "Forum Search" click on that and then change some of the parameters there.
In the 'Find Posts From' the default is 'a year ago' Change that to 'Any Date' That way you get all that is here. You can use the 'Search by User Name' at the top but make sure it is spelled correctly. You can find out if you have it right in the Community/Members tab in the red bar above. For the search all I do is make the date any data and in this case Renault Alpine and there it was.

Happened again. I was looking around on eBay for some of the toys I am wanting and just happened across a couple I was NOT looking for. Dinky 34c Bedford Speaker Van ($15.50us)and the 514 Guy Warrior Slumberland Van ($22.80us) plus shipping of $24.00 tracked and insured from the USA. NO not through the Global shipping program as that would be much more.
Here are some pictures.
The Speaker van is for my collection as it is in fair to good condition with original tires. Here is it as received today in the mail.

The Slumberland van is a repaint. I though it was when I saw the ad and it was comfirmed today upon opening the parcel it came in. Bad job of the painting and seems to be old. The decals are nice though and are only off a bit from side to side. Note the distance of the sentence line through the crest. Not equal distance from the end.
I will be restoring this van. Here it is as it arrived today.













Considering that I see these vans going for over $70.00 all the time I think I got a good deal on this Guy Warrior.
