collecting toy's and things

Postby iank » Sun Aug 17, 2014 2:50 am

here's a few pics of what I like to collect.
old and not so old diecast toys. only having so much room and far too many treasures to display , the answer came about when I bought the first car carrier. two birds, one stone.

now, coming from a family who has been associated with Power Boat racing for around 45 yrs ( my late Father raced Hydroplanes and more recent one of my brothers also raced one of these money pits ), I also collect boat kit sets, although these are harder to find and some that I have are like " rocking horse poo " to find now, but hey, it could be worse, it could all have been pee'd against a wall and nothing to show for it.

Nice collection of various vehicles etc. (Glad I don't have to dust them mind you!) Nice to see you let others put a few ornaments in there too!! Is that a Morris emblem on the watch face?

Sadly, the pics wont load for me, just see a circle going round and round.
Are they big files?

sorry folks if you cant see them as I didn't realise I needed to change them :oops: . I did wonder why they took so long and now I know, so I have sent an sos to Big Al to let me know how to fix things :roll: . good spotting there Plin, it is indeed a Morris Minor watch that I bought of Trade Me here in Kiwiland. Dusting? not sure what that is as you might be able to tell, or not as the case may be :oops: .
