Matchbox #6, Mercedes-Benz 350SL Restored

This 350SL was picked up for £1 at Eastleigh Chritmas Toy Fare in Dec’19. It mostly likey spent much of it’s life on a model railway as this standard yellow exmple was dirty but oddly had almost orange paint work on the boot and bonnet while the lower part of the car was standard Lesney yellow. Some polishing showed the discolartion was unfixable so off the to paint stripper. Katie decided she liked Tamiya Orange so this became the new colour for the car.

Hotwheels McDonalds Happy Meal Charity Shop Finds

Charity shops often have Hotwheels and Matchox cars for sale. Many are “beaters” and restoration projects but occasionally have unusual cars with minor damage. Going rate is around £1.00 for three, at £0.33p each, a few chips are very acceptable. Pre-Christmas rummaging produced several good finds, but these McDonalds cars were the pick of the bunch. The two light up cars need new batteries as can be seen worked perfectly these were fitted.

Rogue One Review

Finally we have got to the point I have be waiting for, Rogue One is out and my god did I like it. This has no spoilers  in it so if you have not see it this is OK for you. So I have a nit pick with this movie to get out. The end was very sad but they did not need to make it as sad as it is but yet nothing was given in the movies or a hint about them so I guess it was the best way to it to end. The last 45 minutes  was one of the best action scenes I have seen this year, the back story of Jyn was very good but at the very end10 minutes was bad ass and I mean it. so my score for rogue one is four and a half stars.

thank you for reading.
