Monthly Acquisitions : December 2015

Earlier on in the month there was one crazy week, which I posted about week 12-12-15 to 18-12-15.

The month started uneventfully with only two models purchased in the first 9 days a Bburago Audi R8 and a Matchbox VW 4 x 4 and then a Ferrari 275 GTB/4 on the 10th.

After the crazy week, two more trips to Drybridge Market drained my wallet. The first was relatively restrained, I found a Matchbox Superkings Marauder and a Zylmex Honda CR-X.

On my most recent visit on Boxing Day, I found a lot of nice models.

I was particularly pleased to find the Corgi Mini Marcos with “Golden Jacks” allowing the wheels to be easily removed…and unlike a Corgi Oldsmobile Tornado, I saw earlier in the year this still had all four wheels (the Oldsmobile was missing one).

Other models found this month included a Lamborghini Aventador (Bburago), Mazda RX 7 (Hot Wheels) and Jaguar XK8 (Welly).

Two late additions…saw some 2016 Hot Wheels models in Metro Mart on 30 December. I came out with two: a chrome Poppa Wheelie based on a Reliant Regal and a Porsche 356A Outlaw (I love the black paint and tampos).
