Anyone fancy going into road haulage?

Post by Johnnie1000 » Tue Nov 02, 2021 6:05 pm

Hello Everybody
I have got FIVE Solido 1:18 Citroen C4 vans I wish to get rid of. Bought on a whim when I thought I was going to have room for some form of road transport operation to go along with my railway, I can now see I will never have room for this. So there is no point in keeping them. Available for collection at Stafford station or I will post them. They come with a card advertising Michelin tyres on each side of the van part, but this is affixed on with that rubbery glue found on the front of magazines to hold freebies on and just rolls off with your finger. £30 each or all FIVE for £130. +P&P(UK only) if required. I know there is quite a difference in scales but they look fine on the layout. Please note: FOUR out of the FIVE have never been out of their boxes, the FIFTH has no box or Michelin signs but has simply been a shelf queen for a few years and is pictured (badly) below. Being French, of course they are Left Hand drive, but I think they pass for a pseudo British Lorry of the inter war period or a post war old banger, which is where I was going with them!

More pictures as requested, I forgot about the writing on the rear doors, but fancy this will be easily removed. Its printed on "on top" of the paint like a transfer.The van roof simply clips off. This leaves some dicast sticking up that can be filed/ground off to tidy it up and the rear doors are full length so they will need carving up too. My plan was to remove the dicast rear and make a wooden flatbed or dropside load carrier.
