  1. Looks good and a nice set of tractors
  2. I have one of these with a Bakelite handle. Is yours bakelite? It has that look about it.
  3. A good looking vintage bear
  4. That's really cool. I had the Action Man (Joe's somewhat gay sounding British cousin) version of the Jeep when I was a kid.
  5. Hi Fort, There is no privy, they would have just used a chamber pot, washed out in the sea which is just outside. I think you could cook a small meal on the stove.
  6. Never seen a wood panelled airstream before. It looks really good.
  7. Love those VW busses. Shame I have can't afford one or have anywhere to store one of likely ever use it. Otherwise I'd buy one. Maybe when I win the lottery.....
  8. Cool looking beast. You can see the crocodile in him
  9. True that. I was on a coach tour of California about 20 years ago and we stopped at the Madonna Inn and the tour guide was quite instant that everyone visit the men's room.
  10. Great old racer I wish it was possible to watch old races from before the war but with modern TV coverage. Very little film of full races exists.
  11. Nice little wagon. Makes me think of Calvin and Hobbes
  12. Nice. You need an Eeyore now
  13. Really cool
  14. Piglet is great and you have a nice collection of bears
  15. Fantastic
  16. Looks well detailed for a small model. I like it.
  17. Knowing you though Fort you couldn't buy just one classic car. By this time next year your driveway would be full of a dozen of them.
  18. Cool. I love those old VW campers
  19. An excellent refurbishment. Looks as good as the day it was new
  20. Good find. It appears to be in great condition. 5 gallons please Nigel
  21. Great vehicle
  22. Like the coach. I think the full size one would have likely had a two tone paint scheme so it would have been nice to see that reproduced for the match box. I am a sucker for two tone paintwork.
  23. Its a great set. Lots of attention to detail.
  24. This is excellent. Love the way Grandpa is hanging from the ceiling
  25. Pretty sure I had that same octopus but it didn't come with a GI Joe. Mind you octopuses do kinda all look the same.
  26. You sure look after it well. It looks freshly built! I'm jealous of those nice big garages
  27. Did you get one for the 70th Jubilee to add to your collection?
  28. Loving the shoes, Allen.
  29. I thought it was wood when I first saw the picture. Very nice. I bet it is heavy
  30. Very nice. I like that period.
  31. The packaging is in great condition for its age
  32. I think he's hailing a taxi
  33. Great colour scheme
  34. Really like this one. Looks like you got a good deal with it including three figures too
  35. What a colourful herd of dinos
  36. A fine collection. Happy Easter
  37. Mk4 I think. They do all look pretty similar.
  38. Very interesting. Both new to me
  39. Never seen a tank covered in so many machine guns. Maybe a bit of artistic licence?
  40. The large scale allows for so much more extra detail. Love it.
  41. Nice collection. I like the variety in the last photo
  42. A great looking spacesuit.
  43. Smokey hasn't made much effort to hide this time
  44. Nice one. Happy new year Fort
  45. A peek back into a time long gone.
  46. A super collection. Merry Christmas
  47. If Tony Stark owned a 8mm projector it would probably look like that.
  48. Great to see
  49. What an excellent idea. It really does look like a giant matchbox in the thumbnail
  50. I like the silver ring. It gives it that little something extra and probably helped to protect the rim from chips. P.S. Expectations are high for a big Christmas post from you of vintage Santas an...
