<p>I have been away for a time, sorry. Something with the family.</p>
<p>This week another Corgi Electro Rockets car. The body in oven cleaner and the contacts and cap  in 1/2 water and 1/2 viakal blue.</p>
<p>I was lucky with the cap, the brushes are good.</p>
<p>Here is a picture of all the Corgi Electro Rockets car, painted, tested and working.</p>

Nice to see you are making great progress with your cars. 23 cars done. They all look very colorful and ready to roll again. Maybe next time you post pictures you can use the full size option instead of the thumbnails option. Makes it much easier to see the photos instead of opening them up in another window so you can actually see what the photo is.

Quite a collection there! Yesterday was the NAMAC fair, but I haven't seen a Corgi Rockets car.

Hard to find and expensive are two different things. If you get them cheap, who cares but I have seen these go for way more money than I would pay.
4 cars for $65 plus shipping
2 cars for $34.42 plus shipping
The Key alone is selling for $13.23 at the cheapest that I can find plus shipping.
I hope you paid way less for these they can be quite expensive is working properly.
Here is a link for you on a Rockets Pit Stop Shop accessory with a Key too.

When i find the Corgi Electro cars in the UK it is cheaper for sending them from the UK to Belgium instead to Cananda. I guess i'm lucky.

Yes, postage makes all the difference these days. There was a time when you could mail a toy almost anywhere on the planet for under $8.00 but no more. Try to send for less than $12 now is very hard.

I have traded a car with a person from the UK. He send me the Corgi Electro car for free and with some work i got it running. He needed the big key from the Corgi Skypark. I have one so i made him a 3D copy and send it to him for free. I like to trade.

Price of postage is definably expensive and ever increasing between £7.00-£10.00 postage roughly to post overseas in GBP, if from the USA or other countries like Argentina for example can even be more.

Nice of that person to send you the Corgi Electro car Chaccamacca and key would be helpful most certainly to him (the person you send to).

Sorting through various bits and bobs I start to gather a small amount of Corgi or Dinky that I may send on at some stage in the foreseeable.
