Hi ,
Tidying up my train room this week I unpacked some boxes containing various vehicles I have collected over the years.
I wondered whether a few pictures would interest some fellow petrol heads.
Here are some for starters .

First up :- 1931 Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 Monza .






1937 Jaguar SS 100







1936 Mercedes Benz 500K Roadster

Hi Steve . These are 1:18 scale . A bit on the large side, probably do for 5 " gauge. biggrin.gif
Diecast with some plastic parts all with opening bonnets complete with fully detailed mechanicals.
Made by Bburago in Italy , they were basically aimed at the toy market, with toy prices ( I wish I had bought more). I bought mine in 1989/90.

Thanks for your reply Trevor . I have posted a little more detail in the above post replying to Steve although I would be surprised if most forum members hadn't come across these before. I have kept the models in their original boxes which are quite strong and give good protection, so they are still "mint".I have taken the opportunity to post a few more pictures. I hope you like them.

Bugatti Type 59 1934







Mercedes Benz SSKL 1928







Jaguar "E" Type 1961

Hi Tony
I too went through a stage of collecting 1/18 scale burrago's, it all got a bit too much when I ran out of storage display space
so sold them all on ebay at a profit. I paid between 18 & 25 for them and sold them for between 26 & 30! It makes a difference if you keep the original boxes.

Hi Tony,

Good collection smile.gif i sold all of the range of these several times over at the shop ..... thought not a vintage vechile as your one of my favorites was the Rolls Royce Camargue 1/22 scale falling between the 1/18 & 1/24 ranges from Burago.

Thanks Nick and Steve for your replies. Nick I would never have made a good retailer as I would have brought all my stock home to add to my collection instead of selling it. lmfao.gif
Steve I got interested in collecting model cars when I belonged to a couple of car clubs in the late 80's early 90's ,after building my own 12" to the foot sports car. I must admit to collecting Matchbox Models Of Yesteryear from way back when. I still have these, which go back to the originals, I'll post some pictures of these if anyone is interested.
For now I'll post the last of my "big" motors . All of the following are 1:24 scale.

Bburago .

1936 Bugatti Atlantic









The next three are from Franklin Mint .A bit more expensive than Bburago but very nice .All are 1:24 scale .



1907 Rolls Royce Silver Ghost.











1936 Mercedes 500K Special Roadster ( same as the black one in the Bburago set )








1930 Deusenberg J Derham Tourster . (I call this one the Bonnie and Clyde Special. tongue.gif








Thank you for visiting my museum

Greetings from the Goon Valley Railway.
Attached to the Museum, here in the city of Secombe, there will eventually be a "working museum " haulage depot.This will be constructed adjacent to Secombe Midland terminal station, which is also still to be built. I have chosen to represent Pickfords, as that company is well known , even in New Zealand . It has , IMHO , a good looking livery, and already there are a fair number of RTR models available. I have started to collect a few models to have ready for the day when the depot is completed and ready to open for business. These models are all by Basetoys and are shown in the attached photos.
3 of these are in Pickfords livery, and are :-
Commer Low Loader
Albion Tanker
Foden Low Loader,
The other 4 are already in a plain blue livery and I will enhance these with Pickfords Logos etc from decals /transfers from Langley models.
These are AEC tanker
Albion artic box van
Thorneycroft 6-wheel flat bed
Leyland Beaver 3 axle dropside.






The lovely Triumph Herald 948 Coupe is the manager's pet. I intend to repaint this pale grey /white as this was the colour of my Herald which I purchased new in 1960. In their day these were very innovative in a number of ways and were popular in spite of being more expensive than their competitors. The Coupe's with their twin carbs were quite peppy.

There are still more to be added , like the Mechanical horse and the big Scammell , and I should I hope finish up with a full yard. !!!

Regards

Posts for the Goon Valley Motor Museum have been few and far between recently as the Museum was closed for renovations during the Summer.
However members of the Bluebottle( where the bluebells grow) Vintage Car Club held a rally, borrowing a couple of cars from the Museum, as well as their own and finished up in the Place de Fromage in the French village of Bottedeblue.
Our intrepid photographer was there to record this event with the cars posed in front of a giant backscene also painted by her.

First up is 1939 Rolls Royce Phantom 111 Cabriolet



[/img]


Next 1926 Renault

[/img]


1931 Mercedes SSKL


[/img]


1936 Jaguar SS100


[/img]


1939 Delahaye Figoni Falashi 136M



[/img]


1939 Delage D 6120-


[/img]


1939 Bugatti Atalantique T39S


[/img]


1936 Talbot T23


[/img]

All these die-cast models are to O-guage 1:43. And were made in France by Toy maker Solido

I hope some of you appreciate these wonderful cars of yesteryear.

Regards

Delving into some more archival boxes I have unearthed some more classic cars . These are all "models of yesteryear' by Matchbox models .
I do not know which series they belong to but I have included their "y" numbers just in case someone is interested . They are of various scales but approximate 1:43 . Some a bit larger ,some smaller . It seems that the manufacturers were more intent in keeping the size of the model roughly equal Whilst not bothering too much about equal scales ..ie As long as an MG TC model is roughly the same size as a Roller
all is OK.


Here they are :-



Y8 !944 MG TC



Y3 1934 Riley MPH



Y17 1938 Hispano Suiza



Y1 1936 Jaguar SS 100



Y10 1906 Rolls Royce Silver Ghost



Y11 1933 Lagonda



Y14 1931 Stutz Bearcat


My Lady Photographer and I have enjoyed presenting this post and we hope you find something to interest you. Mind you I have said that many times before and have had very little or no response, so I am at a loss to know whether to continue such similar posts in the future or not. Any way we have had a lot of fun doing this so I personally , could not care less whether any of you like
it or not.

Cheers

You have some lovely models there Tony and I, for one, appreciate seeing your photos of them. They are obviously very dear to your heart and have been treated with a great deal of care. I only wish I had kept all of my old Dinky toys. dribble.gif

There are some really great motor cars in the Goon Valley Motor Museum collection and here are a few more of them for your enjoyment or otherwise.
Firstly the first five pictures show models from the series , Models of Yesteryear "Grand Prix " collection, by Matchbox Models.

I have included the model Number where known, so first up is :-

Y10 1957 Maserati 250 F Lightweight .



One of the three legendary Lightweights which swept all before them. winning that years Formula 1 World Championship. Juan Fangio won four GPs and his 5th World Championship in these classic racing cars.



Y11 1932 Bugatti type 51



Y14 1935 ERA " RIP" won the 1935 Swiss Grand Prix.



Y14 1935 ERA "Romulus"as raced by Prince Bira .



Y16 1960 Ferrari Dino 246 / V12.



Driven by Phil Hill in 1960 to win both the Belgian and the Italian Grand Prix.
Next up some more Matchbox models of Yesteryear,


1928 4.5 litre supercharged Bentley



1927 Bugatti T 44 . This model is a Three-seater , a specially hand built " Fiacre".



By Polistil of Italy is this Alfa Romeo Alfetta 1750 6C. With its horseshoe radiator grill and overall good looks , in my opinion , it's one of the most desirable cars ever.



Also made in Italy by Toy maker RIO is this Model of ITALA type 24/40. ITALA came to fame before the first world war by producing racing cars with enormous engines, and in their time were very fast.




Although most of the Matchbox models were made in England I was surprised to discover that some of them were made in the Portuguese colony of Macau.

I hope you find something to interest you.
