    Beneath the soil

    In foreign fields

    At rest, the young men lie

    Caressed by the wind

    Blessed by the sun

    Forever, to face the sky.


    How long will we appreciate

    The sacrifice they gave

    In handing us our freedom

    As they marched to an early grave


    Young lads, young men

    All as one

    Of laughter and of tears

    Of broken hearts

    Of beer and darts

    All wrapped in tender years

    Of football, sweethearts, motorbikes

    The innocence of the young

    Torn from their grasp

    By the wail of death

    No more, their song to be sung


    How long will we remember them

    And the sacrifice they made

    As they granted us our future

    It can never be repaid


    Beneath gravestones

    Far from their homes

    In death, the young men lie

    Row after row

    After row

    After row

    Forever, to face the sky





  2. Is due in next week.


    The price has been firmed up now and I'm pleased to say that I'll be putting it out at a special BHM price of £79.99 + p&p.


    I'll have six initially and three have been pre-ordered. More will follow.


    You can buy one now but it won't be posted until next week.


    I'll get it photographed and onto the site as soon as it arrives. 


    Regards to all,



    The first batch of CULT 1/18 models will be here very soon - back end of next week, with a bit of luck.


    The first three arrivals will be:


    Triumph TR7 open roadster in metallic blue or silver,

    Bentley Continental S1 Fastback,

    Rover 3500 SD1.


    There will only be 3 of each arriving, initially, and already 1 of each has been pre-ordered, leaving 2 of each available.


    I will list them on the site as soon as they arrive.


    If you've been hankering for one of these gorgeous models, it might be a good time to shove the knife up your piggy bank and give it a good wiggle!


    Regards to all,


  4. Just received this email from a Cavalier Mk 1 customer...


    "Hi Frank, having just read your letter in Model Collector, I just wanted to reassure you and say that I think my Excalibur Mk 1 Cavalier is FAB_U_LOUS " P.B.


    That makes two of us :-)


    Regards to all,






    Have just taken delivery of some more gorgeous MATRIX models. Click over now to the category to see them.


    The first batch have gone well, with nine models having been sold already and pre-orders for the Allard P2 Woody coming in off the back of the adverts in Model Collector and Diecast Collector..


    If you're a MATRIX fan, keep checking the category out because there will be more brilliant models on the way, SOON!!


    Regards to all,


  6. 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.


    This job would be really easy if I had no customers... ;-)
