And very nice it is too

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

Been after this for some time now.......but finally picked it up for about £50 less than I'd ever seen it previously.

Been away awhile but I see your collection hasn't slowed down Simon. Love the Estoril M3 and the M1 - who is making those Heritage Collection models? Cheers

I'll have a look....think the CSL is Minichamps and the M1 Norev.

Next up is a new model manufacturer to me....Soul models (this actually might be their first!). Saw this advertised at a reputable European dealer that I've bought from before, but at £160 I thought it a little steep. Then a Spanish dealer listed half a dozen of them for £80 each. His shipping times looked terrible, but checking out the feedback suggested he was a lot quicker than quoted.

6 days later, this arrived.......all in good order, well packaged, no damage to the box etc.......LOVE it!!!

Not seen that before. Great find and looks very good.
A 1/43 of this would be most welcome

Wow that's a very unusual setup for the mirrors :? Both examples look great Simon, assume they're also made by Paragon? or are they M/C?
