    My son collects Matchbox / Hotwheels cars ;) and we wondered if there has been a Transporter version?

    Models from Siku, Oxford and Majorette look good but not many T6s mainly 5s.

    Here is the current collection - I need to make another display board!

    My cousin picked me up a tonka car transporter from the 1970s with the vw bettles on them as new in the box. Sorry I have a tonka fettish. Very sad. Ha ha ha ha between that and bmx bikes.

    My bike collection got a bit out of hand and I’m down to 3 (from 7). I had a Haro Mary SS which are quite rare but sold it. Also had a Raleigh Rapide 531, ebay bargain at £51, also sold.

    One of my 3 is a Barry Bond built racer with Ishiwatha tubing made for me when I was 17. Currently in a state of rebuild...

    Yes I have the same problem. I have a skyway t.a. / A diamond back harry leary turbo. / A hutch trickstar with bear trap pedals ouch.!!! And my personal favourite is a original s.e. Quadrangle love it. My 1St bmx was a Raleigh team burner I have even kept it. It's at my folks house. I m a hoarder I must confess.

    Also have a raleigh max cromo MTB that I bought in 1994. Worth about £50 on ebay but far more to me!

    My little girl has asked me for a ride truck. So ended up with this beast. It's still to be wrapped. But it's 12 volt.

    Been Dobbies and got one of each!

    Picked up a catalogue and 2020 lists this. I wonder if the pop-top leaks?

    Majorette make a 1:61 scale T6 Caravelle (red and white 2 tone) which I’ve sprayed, and the bigger one is 1:32 and was available in a few colours (again painted to match mine).

    Where did you get the small one from? I can only find them in Europe on Ebay.

    It was eBay, but I think a UK seller. It worked out at £11 including postage which seems a lot given its size. Nearly as much as the bigger one!
