Thank you for visiting my website.  If you have received any of my restorations, I would be most grateful for your feedback on this page, to testify to the quality of my work.

 

Some recent comments:

 

I have been purchasing Jim’s restored Matchbox models for sometime what I can say about his workmanship it is in a class of its own, great workmanship, brilliant models, great finish product. So much so when I see other models for sale I ask Jim if he can replicate rather than buy elsewhere as I know it’s going to be of very high quality.  Both Eileen and Jim are very honest and reliable people, who won’t let you down, worth dealing with! Regards, Dom - Aust.

 

 

Can't recommend Jim highly enough! His workmanship is so careful and detailed, and special requests done exactly as asked and to a very high standard. The communication and updates with progress photos etc are excellent and his prices are very reasonable for the quality of work he does.  Luisa Daly - Australia.
 
Having purchased products, also having toy vans and lorries renovated by Jim, I am more than happy by the service and products produced by Jim.  I highly recommend him.  Idris Jones, Isle of Wight.

All the Cooper Jarrett item arrived on 26 May in your well packaged parcel.   Am most impressed with these models - another fine example of Jim's handy work.  You create some great models and the best work I've seen in this scale.  Excellent attention to detail given the small scale you have to work with and a credit to you.  
Thank you once again
Lawrie

 

I've bought quite a few code-3 models from different people and yours are definitely up there with the best I've seen.  Craig Chappell, Preston.

    Just received my first model from Jim. Super. I remember the number 39 Zodiac convertible from childhood and the restoration is superb.
    Thanks Jim

    Just received the following Matchbox vehicles that I had sent in for restoration to Jim's Matchbox Restorations: 1) Trolley Bus, 2) Milk Truck, 3) Pickfords Moving Van, 4) Glasgow Bus, and 5) Rent-A-Set Television Repair Truck. Also obtained three restored vehicles that this service had obtained for me: 1) Mobile Canteen Refreshment Stand, 2) Coca-Cola Truck, 3) Tank Transporter and Centurion Mark III Tank. The vehicles that I had sent in were from my collection that had started more than 50 years ago. They are perhaps in even better condition now than they were new as Jim is very careful to apply decals in a precise manner (not crooked as they occasionally were applied by the Matchbox Lesney Company back in the day). It is especially great to see the Trolley Bus, Pickfords Moving Van, and Rent-A-Set Television Truck brought back to their former glory. Thanks for an amazingly professional and superb restoration. It takes me back many years to my youth. All of the Matchbox vehicles are similarly excellent. Thanks Jim's Matchbox Restorations!

    I've had a Lesney Matchbox Ford Galaxy in my family for many decades, it belonged to my dad. Over the years it was obviously well played it and it's condition left a lot to be desired.

    I contacted Jim and he was quick to respond. He was very prompt and accurate with his estimate and very understanding when I had to delay it from my side.

    The car was restored in a jiffy, it honestly felt like just a few hours!

    I had a lot of issues with the postal department when the car was on it's way back and Jim never gave up on helping. He was always supportive.

    The car is now fully restored and I am absolutely thrilled. The car is now the centre-piece of my collection.

    I thoroughly recommend Jim. His work is fantastic. I actually cannot put it down in words. But his work is just top class.

    Thanks Jim! I'm keeping an eye on your website for more things I can buy.

    Jeremiah.

    I have had three vehicles restored by Jim from a pretty awful state having been played with so much, to looking as new. Amazing attention to detail, and affordable, so I shall be sending him some more wretched looking vehicles to transform as with a magic wand.

    The Mercury Cougar model arrived this morning, and I couldn't be happier.

    Flawless paintwork, with the model packed very carefully for transport.

    Your workmanship is amazing.

    Thank you very much for your help.

  • Kevin Farmer (Sunday, September 04 16 06:51 am BST)

    I have just bought one of Jims restored models, a Matchbox Austin A50. It was a nostalgia trip as I remembered having one of these as a boy. On opening the carefully wrapped parcel I was immediately
    transported back to 1960 or thereabout. The quality of work is impressive and I shall certainly be following this website for future models.

  • George (Friday, November 13 15 04:40 pm GMT)

    The best restorations I have ever bought. Many thanks.

  • Malcolm Macdonald (Saturday, April 04 15 12:13 pm BST)

    just received dodge wreck truck in reverse colours. First class workmanship, would recommend Jims work to all.

  • Brian McIver (Friday, April 04 14 04:17 pm BST)

    I have bought a few models from Jim & he has also restored some for me. His work is top notch & I can highly recommend his work.
