 Those Bedford photos brought back a lot of memories....thanks mate:thumb:

I'm not sure what scale those Matchbox models are - are they about O scale - are they a lot smaller - or are they a mix?

I don't know. I also don't know if it really matters - ultimately, there's only one person they've got to look right to (and it's not me) ...

To be honest, I've had my eye on another diecast from the same series as the one I linked to:

It would probably be too small to do an Isle of Sylt style conversion, like in the link in my last post - but I'm sure I could come up with something just as creative. The question is whether I decide to. A lot of model makers suffer from this "more ideas than time" ailment - why should I be any different?

I'm sure I'll come up with something sometime - who knows, it might even get built.

Anyway, all the best with your project - whatever it is. I'm sure it'll turn out fine.
