Love that blue one! Great work - a question...
As I just asked two others, I would love to save some of your photos to hobbyDB for posterity, especially of the rare stock items. The Western hearse for example, I've never seen one. Photo credit will be given, if you like.

Have you seen https://www.hobbydb.com/?

Of course, if you would like your name and one-off creations there as well, I could add some of those too.

Rationale - I feel like I an helping preserve the history of our hobby. This forum is great but posts and photos roll off the end and are hard to find months/years later. Same thing for Facebook groups on 1/43. HobbyDB is different because it is a database and not a discussion group. Things there are easy to search for and find. Collectors can add their own items and also look to see what they are missing. I am acting like an unofficial historian, I feel, and try to add rare/unusual items when I see them. I do not own the site, just a volunteer.

If you give me permission, I will copy over any photos if they are not already there of any 'historically significant' items.
