Wow! These are brilliant.

Steed's Bentley is mega, is that the one that sold for £300 or was one of the Bond vehicles?

Very impressive. Also he does not restict himself to the sixties and seventies, as he I've also seen that he has done cars from The Equalizer and Miami Vice.


Thanks Mike Smile
I think the £250-£300 models could have been the Bond OHMSS cars and Columbo's Peugeot.
He only made a very few of the Ford Cougar and the Aston Martin DBS. He even made a model of the three-wheeler Messerschmitt micro car, driven by Mrs Peel in the end-tag from The Girl From Auntie, which went for a very high price.

Couldn't resist posting a few more images. The bidding on these starts at £39.99 and there are some on ebay at the moment, with a few bids on them.

The Ed Straker UFO car has had 16 bids so far with the current bid standing at £111.00. I also found a larger image of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. Ford Thunderbird, which has had no bids, plus a smaller image of Danny Wilde's Ferrari from The Persuaders! that sold sometime ago.

The Equalizer Jaguar currently stands at £42.02, after three bids.

Okay, so I got off subject there, but I think these four will compensate for that.

I saw the Persauders! Dino at the time but didn't bid. Unfortunately it is probably one of his least successful recreations as the model is wrong, being the spider "GTS" version not the hardtop "GT". The most noticeable differences are the flat (removable) roof panel and the lack of rear windows.



I'm hoping one day he'll do a better one.

Well spotted, I never noticed that the Ferrari was the wrong model. I suppose that finding certain models secondhand that can be transformed is somewhat difficult. I take it that you will bid should the correct Ferrari ever be used?

Like many other fans I bought the Aston Martin DBS, I would probably make a bid for its companion if available.

Brilliant pictures Mike. I love Purdey’s MGB and TR7 and The Equalizer Jaguar and the superb boxes.

I remember Jimmy asking me if I knew the colour of Steed’s Triumph Herald.
I sent him some b/w stills of Steed’s Triumph in Warlock - Cathy Gale Series 2 - in which the car seemed quite pale
and looked at various collector’s vintage Triumph Herald’s from the early sixties,
two-tone green or green and white seemed the classic colours, and as Steed's Bentley's
were racing green - the consensus was that the Triumph may have been light/pale green. He did a splendid job.

Speaking of The Persuaders! Aston Martin DBS, here it is. Plus, there was also a Range Rover, driven by Brett Sinclair in the episode Chain of Events (I think I have the correct episode).

Yes, the Triumph Herald is a surprisingly good choice for an Avengers model, seeing as it only appeared in one episode. I take it that in converting these vehicles that Jimmy chromeplates certain componants or he has varnish that looks like chrome?

Plus, I've also noticed that the tyres appear very shiny, so either all the cars get new tyres or something is painted onto them to give them this glossy finish.

What is the ebay username for these items? I've tried searching and I can't find them.

Mike,
I think it's probably a mixture of new tyres and a type of silver-chrome varnish/paint for the wheels,
plus the same chrome effect for front-grills, bumpers, headlights, windscreen wipers, wing-mirrors, trim etc.
The body-work paint is so absolutely perfect - the detail is incredible.



Jimmy/Sticklogo sold this beautiful Emma Peel/red Lotus racing Simulator from Dead Man's Treasure for £215 last month.
I remember suggesting he should make a model of the Lotus No.2 racing car Simulator - I just wish I could afford it Smile

I'd kill for Purdey's TR7! Well, not kill... maybe just high-kick a DM.

Yes the simulator is a beauty. To quote from Bowler Hats and Kinky Boots: “This simulator, loaned to the production by Lotus, was based on a Lotus 31 Formula 3 racing car and worked along the lines of the most sophisticated flight simulators of the time.”

I see that Jimmy has done a number of other sports cars from the episode Dead Man’s Treasure and odd vehicles from other episodes as well… and here are some, plus the black Mini from The Avengers feature film and tthe New Avengers Rover and Saracen Armoured Car from Mission Highly Improbable.

Cannot resist posting another image. This time its Simon Templar's Volvo P1800, which is currently up for grabs on ebay, although this has already had six different bids.

Another collection of images of Code 3 die casts from various TV series including The Avengers.

The Columbo Peugeot is proving very popular at the moment with bids having taken it up to three figures.

The Jensen Interceptor from the shot-lived series of London Weekend Television’s The Saint TV movies, with Simon Dutton as Simon Templar.

Minder, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. and a Porsche that appears in one episode (I think) of Gerry Anderson's UFO.

The various Avengers, Dead Man’s Treasure sports cars from above are doing well with bids currently around the £60/£70 each.

The guy who does these is onto a “nice little earner,” to quote Arthur Daley of Minder fame.

For you, maybe... the Australian dollar has just plunged out of sight so I won't be bidding for a while.

Piers

I would have thought that postage to Australia would be cost prohibitive for these items anyway.

Would you be talking £20.00 plus for a single item?
