Terry,

As I mentioned above, Jacques Dujardin, in his encyclopedia, describes 2 versions of the 22c, one in olive green and one in khaki colour which I take to mean military versions and I have attached photographs . I think the second one is much the same as mine though mine is glossier.

Chris.

 Chris---Thanks for clearing that up!  I should have assumed you were talking about a military version, but there was no mention of it in the first post.  And to complicate things, the Richardson's apparently were not aware of a pre-war version as they make no mention of it in either of their books.  It must be quite rare....congrats on such a wonderful find!

I finally completed my set of 283 Red Arrow buses by obtaining the more unusual (and more unrealistic) metallic red version. (It of course has been a long-standing gripe of mine that Liverpool used metallic red for various fire department vehicles as well. Did they really think children were that stupid? The metallic red paint chips easily, too.)

The auction lot came with a "Green Line" single-decker too, of course assembled by somebody from the kit version, but done very nicely.

These items arrived in the past few weeks: a new 2022 version of my annual calendar, three instruction leaflets and a Royal Mail Van plus accessories. The calendar is the fourteenth already since Dave Busfield and I compiled the 2009 75th Dinky anniversary calendar for the DTCA. I continued this privately, for my own, since 2010. The instruction leaflets are of the Camion petrolier saharien, the French no. 888, the no. 956 Turntable Fire Escape, and the no. 571 Coles Mobile Crane. The Royal Mail Van is a lovely prewar example, as are the postmen and the letter boxes. Scarce (if complete, undamaged) as the latter are, I appreciate them most of all. The Air Mail Car - staged here, but not belonging to these newcomers - has its rightful blue letter box companion at last! Kind regards, Jan

Johnny,

Your Greenline single decker is not made from the kit, it is an original 292 with a very different green from the kit.

Jacques -- I am sure my single-decker was spray-painted, not painted using the vial of paint that was supplied with the kit ... but might the builder simply have purchased the darker shade of paint himself?

Naturally, I would like to believe it is an original 292 but I remain skeptical. I will say however that the paint has been applied very nicely. The white-painted baseplate appears identical to my Red Arrow versions.

This lovely little Jeep arrived today. Not pristine, but nicer than the photos make it look -- and such a lovely color scheme!

The Civilian Jeep and the Grue Salev are favourites if mine too. I'm still looking for the pale green Jeep. Nice models, Jonathan!

I took pictures today of some recent arrivals. The French Renault Autobus parisien is the jewel amidst some more modest items. Though a little bit chipped it has no damage to the vulnerable tinplate roof, like rust, dents or any other deformations. Some paper documents too: the French 1962 Dinky Toys catalogue and the red 1959-60 Dinky Toys Collector's license. I wasn't aware that it is so small, 10.2 x 6.7 cm only! Two ship models slipped in between the Dinky stuff: a Queen Elizabeth class 'super Dreadnought' battleship and H.M.S. Furious, a very early British aircraft carrier, both made by Wiking on the 1/1250 scale.

Jan,

Your Renault bus version 4 is a beauty, it is so rare in this condition. The collector's licence is also up to your high standard.

A licenced Dinky Toys collector at last! Kind regards, Jan
