Had a bit of a clean and tidy of my office, only took 2 days to dissemble, dust and re-assemble! Have space for the Laptop in front of my Can-Am so that's good.
959 shell is still looking for a minty Chassis, Avante hangs nicely in the wall but.. lots of alloy hop ups.
Trains are live steam versions.. need to find space somewhere for a track/will probably move house.
Anyway- thought I would update and share- hope you like.

I love your beaches MAD-BEE! My parents live in Polperro in Cornwall and I don't get down there enough - Colder Dunes of Aberdeen are stunning but chilly. Glad you like

Its nice looking around other peoples rooms, seeing all the bits and pieces they have accumulated over the years. You've got some really nice stuff

Thanks Dam 10, I just love collecting and always good to pick something up when away from home in the odd fair, curiosity/book shops or the like if you can find them now days- e-bay or trades from some great members on TC obviously. Thanks for your nice comments

Hey good taste in music too!

Damn you got such nice gear in this room! You have a classic Tamiya everywhere I look and is that all Evel Knievel stuff? You have James Bond, trains, planes, tanks, action man! and K9!!! Happy days!


Polperro is a very pretty place! Look me up if ever down this way!

Thanks MAD-BEE - yes some of Evel Knievel stuff is original, some was re-re in the US (potage was more than the bikes. Have more Action men but tucked away (they are minty and cost a bom.
Cars have taken a while, trying to collect the early ones and a mix of SRBs, F1, F2 and Racing Masters, Tanks and a few Kyosho. Getting down to Polperro next summer but just for a few days - Brother has one of the Ice Cream shops down there - hope the sun is shining for you and him. Enjoy and Thanks

Wow, there's lots to see I those pics. So many of those items could have come straight from my childhood. It was like a trip down memory lane looking at those photos Thank you

No worries SRB Bloke- your Baja is one of my all time favourites. I wish I had more of my old toys, some left in Cornwall but pretty beaten up. Thank you

That is one hell of a man cave Doc. Everywhere I looked there is something glorious to behold! WW, Sand Scorcher, Porker and Blazing Blazer to name but a few.

Thanks Grumpy, really glad you like it- dusting is an issue but as memory serves me you sorted that one out. Mrs Doc wont let me call it a Man Cave as she has a few items of hers in here also (i.e. Smurfs, Tea Set and a Doll !- I'm working on their re-location- LOL) - Enjoy watching your progress also so so keep it up and Enjoy.

Super! Wow I could spend days in there looking and talking about everything you have in there. Brilliant! One thing you have which I would dearly treasure is an Evel Knievel bike and figure. Had one as a kid and it broke so my parents took it back only for me to break the replacement too. They got me something completely different in the end so I feel a bit cheated, especially as I have a passion for bike air travel.

Doc007

12-Aug-2015

Thanks Dirt-540, yes I spent hours with my Evel Knievel also- 3 of the bikes I have are original, the other 2 at the front I bought a few years ago from US- came with a video of all EKs jumps/crashes -excellent viewing! also have his car, rocket and a new hot rod. I would like boxed one but they are silly money. My friends EK bike got run over by a car as we were racing it across the road and got the timing wrong LOL (his dad bought him a new one). Glad you like and hopefully brought back some happy memories.

Oh wow, so many words come to mind, but the first are GREAT, now I can show MY WIFE, that someone else has a 'messy' toy room full of goodies like mine. I can't say as I am as organized as this, but at least I feel less alone in that department.
I can't beleive the size of your K-9, I am jelous actually and I would imagine that just like the EK bikes, shipping one of that size from the UK would cost me dearly more than the toy itself. I think my palm sized unit will have to do.
Here is a hint for the Smurfs, employ them as security guards as well as drivers for your RC cars
I suppose the last thing I can say is it ain't cool to hide The Fonz behind the phone like that.

thanks Gents, wife has give up on me LOL, K9 was a Christmas present (RC and talks along with a massive Dalek that you can see in my original office photos on link at bottom of this page (Also RC). Crash you are right about the Fonz LOL (will find a cooler location for him). Smurfs well what can I say.... glad you like and thank you for your kind comments.

Love that K-9!!! When I still had my TT-01 I toyed with the idea of building a K-9 shell for it.
