Not surprisingly for such a distinctive-looking car with lots of rally history, there are some fine models of the 'Cossie' to enjoy
I confess I’d never paid this model much attention until I found this one recently in a $1 bin at a model shop. It was the Real Riders that caught my eye...
This NSX the first Mini GT I’ve bought for my collection. Naturally I’ve been watching the #lamleyhype around the brand for a few years and even picked up a Civic Type-R for a friend who owned one, but this beauty now has a spot in my 1:64 race car display
The modern incarnation of the Chevy Van is just as nice as the classic Lesney release, especially in this Superfast version
With several things coming out at once that I wanted to add to my collection, I decided to beat Calgary's patchy distribution by ordering a box from the States
A couple of months ago I showcased a Blackwall Toyota Supra from my collection. Here's a contemporary two-door from Datsun
I have a Hot Wheels Daytona Coupe but it’s a bit cartoony. This Shelby Collectibles version is more like the real deal
Michael takes us behind the scenes on the limited-run Weekend of Wheels Gassers – and reveals first details of a new collaboration with pro-customizer, Chris Stangler
Four releases from the White Rose era of the early-90s join the collection
With Nico Hülkenberg back in an F1 car last weekend, it seems a good time show this Sparky model of his 2017 Renault
This Superfast Volvo wagon isn't finding buyers in Canada. Perhaps we can reroute them all to Europe?
With all the buzz around the new Hot Wheels ’87 Buick Grand National casting, here is one of the cars that earned the Grand National street car its name
Join us for a rundown of all the issues so far of the Hot Wheels '12 Ford Fiesta, including some recollections from the casting's designer, Mark Jones
The Jaguar XJ-S was one of the most recognizable touring cars of the 1980s. Tomica’s Group A model was based on an XJ-S casting that had been around in street trim since 1978 and featured an authentic but obscure racing livery.
I've accumulated a few different releases of the Matchbox Ford LTD police car, but this Premiere World Class release from 1997, in authentic Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) deco, is the one I like best
I was sad to hear that Model Collector, a long-running diecast magazine published in the UK, had closed. I enlisted the help of Nigel Cooper, former Matchbox Ambassador, to look back at this link to collecting in the pre-Internet age
It’s 20 years since Johnny Lightning released its British Invasion sets of six classic British roadsters – including the only near-1:64 MGB until Matchbox's came along. Let's take a closer look
Kyosho issued its fourth Porsche Minicar Collection in 2011. The 911 RSR Turbos are probably the most sought-after releases from the set, but it contained some other great stuff including three versions of the 907
I’d always wondered how easy it was to put together a 1:64 Kyosho Ferrari and I wasn’t sure whether a kit model would hit the same heights as the pre-assembled ones. When a Ferrari 575 GTC came up for sale for a good price, I decided it was time to find out.
I found a classic Hot Ones ’82 Supra in good shape a few years back. It makes a great pair with my Matchbox version of the same car; I thought it would be fun to compare the two!
Here’s a short tribute to what I regard as one of the finest Matchbox models. Just like the real thing, the Matchbox Land Rover 90 is quite a survivor. There have been more than 40 versions of the 1:62-scale model so far, spanning over three decades!
Chevy trucks are a hot collecting trend right now but amidst the scramble to collect the (ahem) avalanche of vintage Squarebodies, Stepsides and more being issued by the likes of Hot Wheels, Auto World, M2 and Greenlight, I don’t see a lot of love for the Avalanche.
By now you’ll have read fellow Lamley contributor Alex Winson’s take on the Matchbox 75a Ferrari Berlinetta. Alex showed his beautiful regular wheels version; here’s my Superfast one to complete the story.
With travel restrictions, mail delays and border closures, it’s been harder to obtain some cars that I’d bought before the days of social distancing, but this week a box came through from the UK after a couple of months in transit
