Who we are:
The Dinky Toys Collectors' Association was founded to stimulate interest and facilitate communication among collectors of Dinky Toys, Hornby Series Modelled Miniatures and accessories, as manufactured by Meccano Ltd. in its British and overseas factories up to 1979.
WHAT WE DO: The Association is a non profit-making organisation and all officers serve in a voluntary capacity. It does not generally trade in Dinky Toys or any other product, except for its own publications or authorised copies of original material and club memorabilia.
JOURNAL: Our principal activity is the production of a Journal, "The Journal", which is edited and published by the Committee. This relies on members for contributions of both technical and historical interest and provides a platform for exchange of views, ideas and experiences of collecting and restoring Dinky Toys.
See below to access some sample pages from The Journal.
