collection has been cut down to about 8 models as I'm concentrating much more now on quality over quantity and gradually adding over time.



Current collection:

sierra, escort and granada have been resprayed. The sierra and escort took ages to do! Hopefully they look much more realistic than before, especially the xr4i which vanguards did an awful job of.

thanks. They have to be neat after the amount of time I spend on them trying to look like the real thing!

Here all three models have had new custom made windscreen wipers. The Allegro has had new headlights put in as the original set was awful. These are actually a spare pair of cortina headlights shaped correctly. The Rover is from minichamps converted into RHD. A200 GKV is a genuine reg number of the same 1:1 model. I've blunted the headlights on these as minichamps made them too shiny, unlike the real thing.
