    Looks good.
    I've bought a set of DeLorean time machines (1 : 24), but not a blue Bay Kombi - where did you get it?
    I also managed to get a Back to The Future II DeLorean at 1:18, that may be easier to find a Kombi for.

    Ok as for the kombi - it is a 1/18th schuco only available from Germany on e bay - will set you back about $250 au but fullly operational ie all doors open - alternative 1/18 or 1/24 greenlight brand in white over blue $118 or $55 respectively but no doors open - but both are T2a ie lowlights the film version was a T2a highlight .

    Ps in the picture I stuck some temporary black paper to give the illusion of a sun roof - the Gunner is cut at the torso :(

    Someone here is to blame for this.
    My collection of toy Kombis is growing.
    But what to do with them / how to display them?
    Don't want to do the leave them in the unmarked original box thing.
    Decided I would build display shelves for each scale, with some basic scenery.
    Then I discovered you can get scale models of other things.
    And 1: 72 is close to OO scale or HO scale railway stuff.
    Bought a couple of model trams, plans firming for the first display as a 1970's maybe street / beach scape.
    So I would need some tracks for the trams.....
    That arrived yesterday.

    Just playing around on my bench, made a back drop out of a photo of a bit of sea wall cropped and copied, another photo of water and sky.
    Didn't spend a lot of time on it, I can do better with some purpose taken photos I think.

    Started to arrange things.

    I'm giving myself a "not bad" for a first attempt.
    Got a bit more stuff on order, will decide on my shelf size and location, re do my background.
    I think I'm hooked.....

    Just be sure the model funding, doesn’t interfere with the kombi maintenance / improvement funds.....;)

    As I said, this is someone here's fault.
    Got some modelling supplies today.
    Still just playing on my bench, but plans are getting more complex...…
    Fixed up how the end of a tram line would be, with switching tracks.
    Sorted side of the road, and central tram lines.
    I think I'm somewhere between St. Kilda Road, and Manly if it had trams at the moment.
    And OK, they're not Norfolk Island pines.....

    The best thing is, as the streetscape develops, I don't have enough Kombis to fill it, rather than having too many...….

    The red Coke T3 panel caught my eye.......... especially the rear lights, and the centre grill emblem on the front. What’s going on there? o_O

    Part of a 1:72 Coca Cola 3 pack with the Bug and Bay.
    No idea on accuracy, but it doesn't fit my time frame, so it will quietly drive off in to the distance at some point.

    Hmm... Kombies, railways and Cocker Spaniels! Nice mix. What a strange "Kombination". Well it would be if it wasn't the same here!

    More a result of my grungy work bench, but a good idea for down the track.

    Wow! That is really impressive.
    I am going to resist the temptation to keep playing with the toys, and start on a base and backdrop for my model.
    Then play with the toys....
