Fantastic. I like the idea of having a million pounds and a massive layout and creating a company to build for me what I want to run. And coincidently I'll let you sell what you make for me to the public!

I absolutely love the attitude of the collector.

The QUOTE Get your filthy mits off my collection and I have no intention of running them approach is fantastic!


QUOTE JM Have you got a bin behind the desk?

Girl Yes

JM Can you put that in for me? Cheers

Great stuff.

Happy modelling
Gary

What an interesting piece of filming, i wonder if in 50/60 years time, the computer games of today will still have the same appeal as model railways continue to have,

Same here - although in my case its sometimes to have a play with the 1 : 1 Fire Engine as well !

Good video clip ! - loved the attitude of JM. Personally, I think most of the bidders in the auction take too many serious pills LOL.

Yes, it's actually a fully operational, fully equiped fire engine, quite capable of performing it's original function.

It gets used for Industrial Fire Fighting training, fire cover for events as well as for weddings & special occasions (it's not one of those "sad" limo conversions !).

I'll post a couple of pic & some details if anyone's interested.

What is a modern one that you bought and did up, or are you a firefighter, and you just bring it home sometimes

I'd love to see that Brian. Where do you keep it? Not in your driveway? Do you get requests from neighbours who are having trouble getting the fire brigade?

Hi Neil & Hoarp,

Sometimes the Bride, sometimes the Groom, sometime both collected after the ceremony (usually arranged as a surprise).

Briefly, it's a 1986 Dodge ex Northampton Fire brigade - I'll post some pics.

BTW - I park it outside the house ! (The neighours know where to come when they want to borrow a ladder).
