Through the years Big Nev became interested in not only diecast models of all makes, but also in locos and layouts, aircraft and kits and all things American, especially true American muscle kits and models.
His collection became vast and diverse and includes various makes such as Airfix, Monogram, Revell, AMT, Johan, MPM, Linberg, Italeri, Matchbox, Corgi, Dinky, Frog, Hasegawa and many more besides.
In the early day's Big Nev did showcase his collection at exhibitions, but before long his collection became too large to transport, so he decided to keep it all contained in one place and collect to his hearts content.
Big Nev just loved to collect and liked to keep as much of his collection boxed as possible. He did however open up carefully many of the boxes to check that the contents were accurate an for quality assurance purposes for writing detailed reviews and articles for magazine's. In return for his reviews Big Nev often received more kits or promo prototype kits to write further reviews for. He didn't build up the kits very often unless it was for a review as he liked to keep them in new condition but he sometimes bought kits that had been started.
Big Nev's bought, swapped and bidded on various items to add to his collection from right across the country here in the UK but also from around the world too including from America and Russia.
Big Nev was extremely proud of his lifetime collection and we are extremely proud to share his collection with you - it will be auctioned off as the first section in our auction at 10am Thursday 16th April. Click on the auction calendar page to see the catalogue.
