I will share a pic of a recently acquired little Triumph Herald in a day or two along with some other little Brit classics which I really loved at first sight and bought.
Now that's interesting, could not wait. If you could reveal the marques that would do for some time.

the scales are tiny because I anyway collect small scales. also no space in the luggage to bring bigger ones back.

got a Jag Mark VII, a Triumph Herald, an Austin Healey, a landrover series 1, an old massey ferguson tractor and a harrods delivery van limited edition. Unfortunately no vintage classics like the bentley blower and so on though I hunted high and low.
will put up the pics tomorrow or late tonight if time permits.

saw many more cars especially in the corgi / vanguard / honrby / hamleys stores and in a few flea markets but all were in the 1:24, 1;18 scale which I dont generally collect anyway - also too big as mentioned before. there were some lovely restored routemaster buses and so on but all way too big.

thanks my friend - even I loved the Herald the minute I saw it. its really superb. however for some reason the stores I went to recently in Ireland and the UK didnt have much stuff in 1:43. They did have an Aston Martin DB5 - but I ve already got that one - and frankly mine (the James Bond one) is better.

In the Tintin shop there I saw some lovely little scale models (die cast metal) of the various cars that come in the Tintin series - while they are amazingly true to life in 1:43 scale they are not working models, but static models. Hence I didnt buy. Was sorely tempted but prudence prevailed.

Bought this 1:24 VW Bettle by Welly, the Quality of welly has increased multifold. Gifted by my wife only for the fabulous blue color. This makes the total beetle count to 10.

Awesome pair mate. I ain't a big fan of the Veyron, but the color combo is good. Love the F1 though.

I saw this yesterday but didnt pick it up.

@ALL: Do you guys remember I tried the LP670 SV Project? I messed it up, but now I have taken the car apart and done a Respray. The Goal this time is to make a Subtle Lambo and then have some add-ons on it later.

Imagine a Lamborghini mixed with a Renault Megane R26-R mixed with a Fiat 500 Abarth....... Lets see if anyone can crack the color scheme.
