A Matchbox example of the same year 1962, the Jaguar 3.4 Mk 2 on the 1/72 scale!

Jan -- that's a good example. I was thinking of, among others, a somewhat later model that I owned, the Ford Cortina Mark II. Its doors would open well and then close with a satisying snap that I remember to this day.

In order to hold up Binns Road's honour I am trying to think of a British Dinky with an opening feature that is as slickly implemented, but none comes to mind at the moment ...

Is this French lady in her Peugeot 404 cabriolet the same lady as the English driver?

No Jan it is her sister, she belongs to the same large family, other sisters have been fitted to the Daf ref. 508, The Renault 8S ref. 1414 and the Fun A'hoy set ref. 125. . The way she wears her headscarf shows that she is muslim, the first and only one in the Dinky Toys range. There was already a black man riding the rare triporteur ref. 14a. The Honda S 800 ref. 1408 could have been provided with a japanese driver so that all the colour variations are in the Dinky Range.

Inspired by 1435 DS Presidentielle and owning a real DS (as was obligatory for serious architects, and being allowed to drive a colleague’s Chapron bodied car), I have collected several examples. Only the PP Copy model for Dinky Club France features De Gaulle, in his kepi. Other makers have covered the cars and presidents, my last Holland (sans crash helmet!). Macron has now appeared in an SUV, but so short his head barely sticks out.

Unfortunately I do not have the Peugeot 404 cabriolet, so I cannot compare the ladies. But I can say that when the Spitfire was new, it was not only Muslins who wore headscarves ...

Although I have the grey civilian no. 105 Triumph TR2 Sports in my collection already, and I do not seek to have them all, I could not let this affordable lemon beauty escape when it came along. It is a slightly later (but not the final) issue, with the nobbly tyres, shiny base plate and the brighter yellow box, with correct colour spot. A very fine addition to my Triumph family, as demonstrated in the freshly taken pictures below. Kind regards, Jan
