    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.

    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.....;)
