A LAST LOOK AT RONNIES COLLECTION

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,thought you all might like to see the collection of our late member Ronnie who sadly passed away in september 2013,during the latter years of his illness Ron was unable to continue modelling or participate in the forums ,consequently many of his models which were built over a long period of time have never been posted before.This seems to be a good time to show them as Rons widow is shortly moving to Australia to join her family and the whole collection is being shipped with her,fingers crossed they survive ok.Sorry if picture quality is not that good as there are reflections in the cabinets plus my photographic skills are not that great.Thank you Ron for 50 years of wonderful memories.   Michael.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      26449767199_9c1bca9429_k.jpgDSC00435 by michael hobday, on Flickr26449769789_e2634c1dbb_k.jpgDSC00436 by michael hobday, on Flickr26449775609_0913c64a71_k.jpgDSC00437 by michael hobday, on Flickr26449780239_912905b9ab_k.jpgDSC00439 by michael hobday, on Flickr38170555256_2c9581b38d_k.jpgDSC00438 by michael hobday, on Flickr26449790149_299efba654_k.jpgDSC00441 by michael hobday, on 26449793979_e3011c20f1_k.jpgDSC00442 by michael hobday, on FlickrFlickr26449787599_36b3ccf821_k.jpgDSC00440 by michael hobday, on Flickr37515264774_073f0a6afa_k.jpgDSC00443 by michael hobday, on Flickr37515272164_8935a13689_k.jpgDSC00445 by michael hobday, on Flickr26449801109_58a462cb64_k.jpgDSC00444 by michael hobday, on Flickr26449805209_409ad7c307_k.jpgDSC00447 by michael hobday, on 38170580766_8a8d5b2acc_k.jpgDSC00449 by michael hobday, on FlickrFlickr37515273834_5067cbe24c_k.jpgDSC00446 by michael hobday, on Flickr38170587126_b777921a78_k.jpgDSC00450 by michael hobday, on Flickr38170583726_5f0a08a1c0_k.jpgDSC00453 by michael hobday, on 38170589856_c98a0f1258_k.jpgDSC00454 by michael hobday, on FlickrFlickr38193930622_1cacade62c_k.jpgDSC00452 by michael hobday, on 26449831189_2567ea7bdc_k.jpgDSC00456 by michael hobday, on 26449836159_e3fe7f490b_k.jpgDSC00457 by michael hobday, on 38193950752_d88eb772c6_k.jpgDSC00459 by michael hobday, on Flickr26449847209_e7028eff07_k.jpgDSC00458 by michael hobday, on FlickrFlickrFlickrFlickr38193928592_cdd79cdaac_k.jpgDSC00451 by michael hobday, on Flickr26449857649_ff9774ca39_k.jpgDSC00461 by michael hobday, on Flickr37515296684_964e90c9df_k.jpgDSC00460 by michael hobday, on Flickr26449828469_89a9a1e199_k.jpgDSC00455 by michael hobday, on Flickr38193957382_40cfafc333_k.jpgDSC00462 by michael hobday, on Flickr26449869909_04f8f9b28c_k.jpgDSC00466 by michael hobday, on Flickr26449868289_604977e24f_k.jpgDSC00465 by michael hobday, on Flickr38226069401_453d1d7d42_k.jpgDSC00463 by michael hobday, on Flickr38170616966_bc450767f8_k.jpgDSC00467 by michael hobday, on Flickr38226087751_bbab6b0b84_k.jpgDSC00472 by michael hobday, on 37515327424_8a864616f5_k.jpgDSC00473 by michael hobday, on FlickrFlickr38170627916_559d4b2257_k.jpgDSC00471 by michael hobday, on Flickr26449893099_65d94b708c_k.jpgDSC00474 by michael hobday, on Flickr

What a great collection, I can see why Ron's wife wants to take them with her, a perfect memento.

What a memorial. The quality and quantity. Good luck getting it all to Oz. Great the she's taking it all, might be worth finding some downunder Bm'ers for any repairs, re-fixing.

What was his BM name? Thanks for showing and ..

 

RIP Ronnie

Rons BM name was Ronnie,one of Rons sons already lives in oz and does do some modelling so hopefully he will be able to sort out any problems.                                                                                                                                                                                       Cheers  Michael.

Thanks for sharing those, I'm guessing 1/48 & bigger?  Certainly an impressive collection,  I wouldn't want the job of packing that lot up, great that they're making the journey though & nice that that Ron's son will get to enjoy his Dads collection.

What a wonderful collection.

I think that it's very touching that his widow wants to keep them all with her in memory of him. 

Thank you for sharing them with us.

Looks a fine collection, nice clean builds of all the classics. I hope he got some enjoyment from them in later years when he could only look.

Indeed. What strikes me is, like all of us, the improvement in skills over the years is very evident in these models. He was obviously a very talented modeller at the time of his death. Some great subjects there, too!

Dads models have arrived. For the most part they are all intact. A couple of repairs have been done, just wheelhouse doors etc, and a few pitto tubes missing but all looking good. I shall try and get some pictures up when I get time :0)
