Good Day,

So excited to finally have this in hand. Got these from multiple sellers on the Dutch 3inch forum. Some will add to the collection, but many will be restored albeit in different colors and wheels.

New Welly 2017 Casting Images...finally!

So anyone following this blog knows my love for modern Welly 1:60 castings. I was quite worried there for a bit as the Welly website had neglected to update their 1:60 offerings for almost two years. Then, my eBay connection started to get new castings. Well, I checked and low and behold, new casting images. The images are unfortunately grainy but head over to their site for clear pics. Hope you enjoy.

Custom Matchbox 1995 Chevy Van

This is a decent casting but way too much chrome accents. So I made a custom and added some realriders. Hope you like it.
