I had vowed not to get into scale car collecting, but when I visited eminent scale Ford collector Dave Turner in England in 2001, he gave me a Vanguards Mk III Zephyr 4. I joked about it at the time, but it looked lonely on the shelf by itself, and then I discovered Minichamps! However ever since I was kid I was fascinated by dioramas, and this year my kids� interest in setting up a Christmas Village, merged with my pent up desire to put my scale Fords in front of an interesting background and here we are!

Just last week I actually bought a �O� scale model railroad enthusiast magazine, to see what might be possible. Next year�s Christmas Village might be a bit bigger.

Last night I was checking 1:43 scale Fords on e-bay Germany (50 pages) and Holland (80 pages!). Fascinating stuff, but I couldn�t stay up late enough to look at them all.

Here is a link to many more pictures of my 1:43 scale Ford collection: http://forum.love-fords.org/showthread.php?t=782

Cheers,

Michael
