Very nice diorama Magnus. Really neat detailing.

BTCC S40s are very smart too. Did the wheels really tuck into the arches that much?

Agreed, but I think the models exaggerate it because of how thick the bodywork is. The wheels end up a long way 'inboard' to fit behind the casting of the arches.

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.

Don't be too jealous, Steve! ...I've just discovered that one of its mirrors is not the correct original one... :(

Great Volvos! Just put that Hongwell C30 high on my wanted list because I like the real thing and it's cheap and great. Would like an Amazon, PV and 1800ES in my collection someday too.

Slightly different Volvo groupshot, found my old toy garage, probably intended more for 1/64 cars but some 1/43 cars fit in too. Volvo S80 didn't but that's because the narrow "rails" inside the garage floor.

Talking about garage dioramas, someday I'd like to build something like the GT Auto in Gran Turismo 6 :)

Might as well add this Photoshopped diorama entitled "Volvo Club Autumn Outing" to the mix.

Image
It's probably too hard to see the detail, but the woman in the car is Detective Sarah Lund from the Danish TV series "The Killing" and it's truly impossible to spot that it's Kurt Wallander at the wheel, but it is.

Just had to have this one, because my parents had one 25 years ago (big mistake in a long row of Nissans). Volvo 360 GLE, Ixo made Volvo Collection.
