I can't remember if you had that set made up or if you bought it as it is, either way it looks terrific 8-)

Question: The third pix contains a 1949 Talbot #6 and the #11 Nash Healey. Both caught my eye immediately. What model brands are they? Hand-builts? Did you build them?
1949 Talbot was a built up Renaissance kit and the Nash Healy was produced by Bizarre Models. Hope that helps.
I finally get to say hello sir! I'm prejudiced. Your thread is my favorite because of the subject matter.
I vaguely heard of Renaissance so I need to search around. The Bizarre Hash Healey jogged my memory. I remeber now that it was offered. It's as rare as the proverbial "hen's tooth". I've seen it offered only once and the bidding soared. Many of the Bizarre pieces are rare. I did manage to get some mid-1950s Bristols and Allards when they were issued. My biggest disappointment was missing out on a special edition Delage LM racer from the late 1930s. I saw it when offered; I saw the price and didn't like it; I didn't realize it was a limited edition....oh well!

I thought this thread was worth giving a bump for some of the newbies. Head back to page 1 and enjoy.

Holy crap... Image
I just perceived that I'm gonna need a loooot of money.
And more display shelves.
And more walls.
And a lot of explaining to do.

This is not going to be simple.

Ian, I'm glad you have pushed this tread up the listings I had not seen it previously. There are some excellent displays in here which I :mrgreen: over, especially some of the Derek Bell Porsches! Cabin and Shell come to mind.
