    Bandwidth theft from a sub-100K jpeg....some people are stuck in 1995 :shades:

    Here's the neat Corgi W201 I had these were an odd scale, something like 1:36

    Dinky was better at fine line detailing and proportion, for sure.

    I finally got a decent copy of Dinky 186, this one with apparently rare (for the model) white tires:

    I like this model, as it is a good match for my car:

    Hot Wheels has released the 2002 in several colors; the latest shade almost matches my car:

    That's neat, it's cool to have a toy of your own car. And nice that HW recognizes the 2002 enough to make a casting of it.

    Speaking of Corgi from earlier, I got this Corgi W114/115 in a junk lot several years ago. It's from the 70s, another odd ~1:36 size:

    Speaking of 70s and W114/115, this Siku model (smaller - ~1:60) is excellent, orange red with orange-yellow windows, so 70s:

    I have all but two of Gama's E28 5er variants- the gray civilian car, police, fire, and emergency doctor(Notarzt). All I'm missing are the BMW Servicemobile and the taxi.

    Speaking of Gama, I would like to find one of these:

    It was also made in a lighter blue.

    If you'd like a scale BMW that actually looks like a 2002 you might look into Autoart>

    Thanks Andy, I have a few larger '02s, as well as some smaller ones that are more accurate the HW versions. The 1:87 BUB '02s are especially nice:

    My sister got this a month or two ago at a flea market; also an Isetta and old Jag. Love the way the doors open on this one and even the seats move so you can get into the back. It's a Corgi, stamped H J Mulliner, Park Ward Silver Cloud on the bottom.

    Funny thing, as it is a Silver Shadow MPW coupe (not a Cloud), later to become the Corniche. Funny the little errors on toy cars - the box for the Corgi Mercedes 220SE coupe pictured a fintail (the toy coupe was technically a fintail coupe).

    And yeah, the hood up is a normal position for those. Toy dates from the 70s.

    When I did a quick search of the lettering on the bottom, I wondered about that because Silver Cloud didn't show up on the first page of hits about the coach builder.

    And I did assume you or another poster here would know the real scoop. :)

    I looked up your car, it was issued in 1970, probably made for a few years. I think the wheels are detachable from the car.
  • steverstever YooperlandPosts: 39,936
    Ha, wish I had know that before we left this morning. I could have had some fun with her. :)

    Fantastic. I think I like his 1930-40s scenes even better.

    I am not a car collector but I have one model which I am trying to find more info about.
    It is about 2 inches black in color made of some kind of very hard plastic.

    It is made in USSR I estimate from 1940s to 1950s. The car is called ZiM (ЗиМ in russian).
    Wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GAZ-12_ZIM

    I searches on the web using all kinds of key words but could not find this or similar model.
    So I am looking for input on how rare this model and on the potential value.

    I took a few photos, but I could not figure out how to attach them to the post. Is there any way?

    Thank you!
