The 3 smaller plastics cars are a Austin 1100 and Hillman Imp which are both Triang Minix, The tiny Ford Classic is made by EKO .
Sorry about the fluff in front of the Rolls

Hello Will, nice little collection. We don't see enough of those plastic 'MINIX' models on the forum so they are nice to see and do I spot a Gordy plastic copy Dodge steak Truck in Red next to the Black Datsun.

The #44a Rolls-Royce looks to be in very good condition, what wheel design does it have, bare metal, Grey plastic or Silver-Grey plastic wheels.

Here's a close up of the Rolls, sorry it's poor but my camera phone is on the way out and Photobucket is getting increasingly tricky to use. The base plate is painted black.

Do another picture but put more distance between it and the camera so the model stays sharply focused. Don't worry about the picture being too big when it's on the forum, as I can change that and on this ocassion it will be of benefit to have it large.
