My new collection and display

Post by Adrianf » 17 Feb 2018, 20:58

As I mentioned a few weeks ago, I am back collecting but only trying to get one of each reference 1-328. Anyway had a good start after trading with some forum members and a few wins on feebay and now have my display cabinet as shown in the photos. It's a car display cabinet from Amazon but, I have added an extra stepped shelf to four of the five shelves by taking a piece of plastic electrical conduit, wrapping it in an old pitch and laying it inside. Also gone for the old advertising hoardings by buying some new stickers off eBay (£2 I think) and putting them on old shabby fencing panels.

Anyway hope you enjoy.

Ade

Looking superb, Adrian. Extremely difficult task you've set yourself there, though. 1 - 328, all original figures is tough. Good luck finding them all. :thumleft:

Yes rare stuff mainly thanks to Mr Ian Brown, a nice deal with Jon Rosten and winning a mixed lot from Mark (FocusOn) and saving up a war fund lol
