Even though I have been working in photography for more years than I care to mention, I am not a photographer!
but during a cleaning session last night I decided to photograph some of my collection.
It's not big, but I love it

The 'Star' of my collection (in my opinion) with a CD to give real scale
SunStar 1:24 RM8 Routemaster 'London' Bus - No. 2297 out of 5,000 worldwide
(it has already sold out)




more to come

Thanks for your kind comments, also if any other member has had a bet with Felix, about my 'invisible' collection.
You've WON :giggle :giggle

Thanks Nadav
The Aircraft on 3 of the shelves are 1:100 scale, they came as a 32 partwork (of which I had some spare parts that were in the DX October Giveaway) The others are various scales ranging from 1:90 to 1:400 (depending on the model). I really do suffer from "Notenoughshelfspaceitis" to quote Jeff aka Max Power

No Ali, I wish I had the skill
All the 1:100s came in a 32 partworks (ie each model had a mag which profiled the supplied model plus 2 others)
The series is now finished, but their website is still up an running

As to the Minis, I bought those from the Oxford bus Museum, they are made by Hongwell and you can buy five in a set for approx £9 (I bought 2 different sets)

What a co-incidence, 3 weeks ago at a bus rally at the Oxford Bus Museum, there were 3 RM8's giving 30 minute rides, guess who had 3 rides? and drove one for at least 100 yards :giggle

My collection of 1:43s consist mainly of Matchbox (Models of Yesteryear), Lledo, Corgi and Solido with 1 Franklin Mint (a gift),
there are a few 1:36s in the backgound (Corgi)







The aircraft are 1:100 scale (32x partwork, ie diecast and history type magazine), I have 100+ various scale aircraft (again partworks),
but at present have no room to display them.



1:18 Anson 1932 Maybach DS8 Zeppelin
(I like 'old' cars) and this one in particular, can anyone guess why?



1:18 Signature 1930 Packard LeBaron

Will post more when they have been photographed

Does this qualify?



I have such a fascination for 'partworks' that I've even got the Inspector Morse series of 33 DVDs'
To those who don't know who he is, He's a World 'Famous' Television Detective based in Oxford, where I live







Not shown here are my 'tv & movie' collection - (DoH) General Lee, (S&H) Red Tomato, (BttF II) Delorean and the Munsters Koach.

Answer 1) Cars from left = Solido 1925 Panhard Levassor, next 4 are Matchbox (models of yesteryear) 1928 Bugatti Type 44 then 3 1936 Hispano Suizas' (3 different colours) they issued 4 colours, but the 4th is very rare and worth a lot more than the 3 I've got. :cry

Answer2) Cars from left = Solidos, 1965 Triumph TR6, Triumph Spitfire and Triumph TR3A

Answer 3) No, I only have 1 bus (and you know what that is) :giggle

Luciano

Say what you like about the Nazi's of the 1930s (I agree with you!), they did have some
wonderful cars

You started to drive in '32?
Because I was a biker for 19 years, I didn't learn to drive until 1983

I will post more pics as soon as I can borrow the camera

I'm afraid I haven't got a 'famed' bus collection, apart from the one you know about (in banner). But here are some 1:1s I'm involved with
