Just in case you're looking, the Vitesse models are quite nice.

There was a 1:43 scale Auto Replicas metal model kit of the pre-1999 4 seater

I’ve got about 3 unmade which I’m going to build and make as part of a dystopian early 20th Century Road Wars War-game with machine guns mounted in the back seats

Can you mount a machine gun on the back?

There was also AMR (André Marie Ruff) models, I have two of them. These are very fine and detailled kits, hard to find...... but with little chance : https://www.ebay.fr/itm/AMR-MORGAN-Plus-4-seater/303048406321

If you like sad, I've just had a look and I have nearly 30 Vitesse 1/43 Morgans including the rare (as far as I'm concerned) yellow one. I've also got the full set of Spark Aeros including the 2004 blue and silver Le Mans car which is hard to find (and pretty expensive when you do).

If anyone out there is looking for a particular Vitesse model then I have some duplicates but sadly no four seaters.

All in all, I have over 100 models of one scale or another and one or two odd-shaped Morgan toys. Belive it or not I do not see myself as a collectors as I won't pay silly money for rareties - I just enjoy them for what they are.

I bought one of those in 1984 in Wengen, which, as we all know, does not have any cars in it!

Also bought first copy of Octane whilst on Sark, ditto, and two resin Morgans on Herm ditto, ditto.

Funny old life innit?

Oh yes I have. It's a sort of red colour. I did have a white soap one which had come from the factory but it's gone goodness knows where now.

I’ve got two of the red coloured ones and one of the white, SWMBO allows me to have them “on display” in our en-suite

Someone has put some work in there Stewart. I think it's quite neat. Though an old Series Land Rover may have been more fitting!

Indeed, I sort of agree but still a bit bizarre

I think a neater model diorama would be a cutaway of an old shed or garage with a ‘barn find’ Mog with rusty wings

Fantastic. A Morgan that has been well loved and well used by some child, if not a series of children. Given that at the earliest it is a model from the 50s I wonder if the original owner ever bought a full size Morgan. If he or she had it new in the mid 50s they would be around late 60s or 70 years old now.

Or is it a new very expensive "aged" vintage edition, like Gibson does with some Les Paul models.
