Here are a few examples from my collection. No doubt you can find many pictures of trains to copy.

A railway waggon...

Comparing scales between 7mm narrow gauge models (Centre and left) with a 00 gauge model which I use as a donor loco (Right).

Another little waggon I made.

Nope, but I've got a P1800 somewhere.

Mostly I've got a lot of sporty coupes and sedans.

A few years ago I bought a Volvo 131 (Amazon) and it was quite quick too. Good brakes. Good handling. A great car. Mine didn't have overdrive so it topped out at 120mph which was about average for a 1960's car, but the overdrive versions were said to touch an extra 15 to 20 mph on a good day.
The 360GLT's were the hidden gems. Handling.... They were tail happy but totally controllable with it. The back end went where you put it. I could go down a straight road at a 45 degree angle and hold it there for the length of the street. Amazing cars to drive.

My dad and uncle have owned a bunch of Volvos over the years. Amazons, P1800s and others. I'd have to ask him to confirm the whole list.

I have had 2 360GLT's, a 360GL and a 340 (For spares but the 340 was nothing like a 360 except for the bodywork being the same. Had a 480ES, and a 740GLT which in a straight line was probably the quickest car I have owned so far... Quicker then the T5... I had the 850 T5 estate and the non turbo 850 2.5 estate before that. I have also had a 940 ES which a friend now owns. The 940 handles better then the 740 but the 940 I had was the base 2000cc model. The 740 had the Porsche designed twin cam 2,300cc Volvo engine. It was quick! It was limited to 155mph like the T5 was, and as the 740 had a 4 speed manual sports gearbox with overdrive, 1st on the 740 was where other Volvos would have 2nd gear. The whole car was only around 1250kg in weight.
And, of corse the Amazon. :) I think that is the list of Volvos completed. I have also driven a very quiet and very economical Volvo 760GLE which had a lovely V6 engine. I was told that car averaged 43mpg on the motorway cruising at 80mph on a round trip of about 160 miles. It was an automatic. I think it was a 2.8.
