  3. I've JUST listed five Derrez Models 1971Triumph Herald Skylight models.

     

    I was just about to announce this in the blog and before I had the chance to do so, a customer has bought four of them. There's one left - white with wire wheels.

     

    I've got some more on order and they should be here in the next couple of weeks, hopefully, so if you want one, keep watching, or let me know.

  5. MATRIX MODELS ADDED TO THE FOLD!!!

     

    Most of you will know of the Matrix brand of model cars, from The Netherlands-based company.

    The models are hand-built in limited quantities, are beautifully detailed and finished, and made in China from high-quality resin and photo-etched parts.

    I've decided to add this brand to the catalogue as I've been asked for them a number of times by customers.

    I've just added an initial seven models and will add more as I can get them, as they're mostly sold out at the importers.

     

    If there's any particular Matrix model that you're trying to find (British or foreign) let me know as the hunt goes on to track down more models.

     

    Click over now and have a look at what's available.

     

    Regards to all,

    Frank.

  8.  

    The inaugural stock of the Automodello models has sold well. I ordered an exploratory eight models and have sold five of them already: 4 x TVRs, various colours, and 1 x metallic blue RHD 1964 Marcos 1800 - it was the only one I had.

     

    I've just put in another order for more TVR models (the colours that sold initially, plus now red and also yellow) and more blue Marcos 1800s.

     

    I've also ordered a couple of pale blue 1965 Sunbeam Tiger Mk 1 convertibles - these come with an additional detachable hard roof, in black.

    It's a LIMITED EDITION of 165 and will be priced at around £125-130.

    There's only TWO Tigers initially, so if you want one, pre-order by contacting me as usual.

    See photos in the Automodello category on the site.

    Regards to all,

    Frank.

     

     

     

     

  9.  

    Just arrived into stock is the latest model from Lansdowne: the 1935 Brough Superior Eight, 4-seater, open drophead coupe. And what a gorgeous model!

     

    Nip over now to the Lansdowne Current Models category and take a butcher's. It's beautifully excecuted in what appears to be RAF blue, but just shows on the box flap as 'blue'.

    I've also added the Lansdowne AC 16/80 sports roadster - a gorgeous little model in BRG with tan upholstery. 

     

    I've started to get up to speed, at last, with the (current) Lansdowne photos. During the last couple of months, I've not had much time to spare, what with the deleted Lansdownes, then the Cavalier Mk 1 models flying out, (the words 'headless' and 'chicken' spring to mind) but things have quietened down a bit now, so I've replaced the Lansdowne Website photos (which I temporarily borrowed) with my own.

     

    I'll be doing the Brooklin ones next.

     

    Never mind, it'll soon be Christmas. Ho! Ho! Ho!  :-)

     

    Regards to all,

    Frank.
