Diecast Car Collector

Sometimes, I reflect on why I collect model cars (Reflections on Why I collect diecast cars?). Yesterday (4 March 2019), I was visiting the secondhand stores near Tbilisi Central Station, as I often do and found they had some new stock. There was nothing especially old, but I came away with five models from one […]

Though this is fairly obvious to any experienced Matchbox collector, I’m not much of an expert on these things. For me, this is just for fun… I loved them as a kid, and I enjoy taking old broken ones apart and fixing them up to like-new condition. I have bought a few Matchboxes that are […]

The Race Case

After I found this Lesney Matchbox boat trailer recently at the Wichita Community Market, I went on a search for a boat to make it complete. I did a similar thing a few years ago when I found a loose Lesney Matchbox Jennings cattle trailer, reuniting it with a Thames Trader cab to make the […]

Lesney had been selling a lot of models in the States, but with the introduction of Hot Wheels, Lesney’s US Sales plummeted. In response […]

Here’s another 28c Jaguar Mark 10 restoration, this time with a metallic bronze finish. These were all purchased as part of larger eBay lots, and I chose this one to refinish because it looked pretty terrible & I wanted to do something about it. On one hand, this was a straightforward project, not too dissimilar […]

*Paint and cement not included

Due to circumstances beyond my control, the whole “one purchase per month” thing has been put on hold. I won’t be hunting down any more kits on eBay for quite a while. However… over the Christmas holiday, my wife and I spent some time at antique shops, and I came across quite a number of […]
