Here is a Bedford van 410 with Modellers' World stickers. Produced between 200 and 250 exemplars

Jacques where were applied the stickers ? I suppose, in the publisher offices !

It is not a John Gay production !

Kind regards

Richard

'Another fine Dinky Toy' was delivered today. It's a fourth type cream and red export version of no. 25b Covered Wagon. I have never had such a bright example in my hands! Only remaining a first type wanting. Kind regards, Jan

Very nice Jan. It is always a challenge to find these "trade box models" in such fine condition. Good luck in finding a first type!

Kind regards,

Rob

Jan—A simply stunning example....very well done! It is wonderful to find such pristine examples after so many years since they were made. I also love that color combo. Congratulations!
Best regards, Terry

Richard,

The Modeler,s World van has been issued by Mike Richardson who probably applied the stickers.

Best regards from Moscou.

A very nice 25b Covered van and a beautifull 470 Austin van. Congratulations.

Has the Shell / BP van been made with this extra part or was this added for the Nestlé van only ?

Hi Friends.

Here is an Austin covered wagon.

This military version was in my dreams since a long time !!laugh

It's coming from Canada.

Cheers

Hello Jacques, I found the one below on the internet, with the extra axle covers. Apparently a later example. As the Shell-BP lasted until 1956 and the Nestles was introduced in 1955, this casting adjustment must have an overlap too. 

Richard, the military Austin is harder to find, so a real fine addition indeed!

For me, I managed to acquire a true collecting milestone at last, the final prewar military sub-set wanting, the no. 151 Royal Tank Corps Medium Tank Unit. A stylish present on the occasion of my forty years' Dinky collecting anniversary this year. In the many years that I have been looking for one they were very brittle or had even completely collapsed, the box poor and the set too expensive for me. This one is superb, with a bright sturdy box and less expensive than I have ever seen before! It was in the recent Vectis Hampstead Collection auction of 3 September last, no. 162. A snap shot below. Kind regards, Jan

And I still have to find that blue one, Richard!

The other day the models below came in. All very common and affordable models, but in very nice condition, in order to replace poorer examples in the collection.
