Thank you very much for your nice comments on that slide taken 60 years ago. I was indeed extremely fortunate that my father had moved from monochrome to colour slide film in time for me to take a slide of some of my Dinky Toy collection.  Looking at that image again, I included a number of Dinky Toys that actually belonged to my brother; the Muir-Hill Dumper, Chrysler on the Pullmore as well as the Esso Trojan Van, the brown Hillman partly obscured by the Fire Engine, the multi-coloured Hudson Commodore that had been repainted with house paint, and the cream Riley in the foreground.  I have no idea why I did not make it an all exclusive BH Collection! Missing was my competition MG received at the same time as the TR2, Ford Fordor Sedan, my better quality Hudson Commodore, Scout Car, and Ferrari Racing Car.

But I wonder why I did not borrow Dad's camera to take the image I have also shown on this website that contain later Dinky Toys, although I think I used Dad's old Kodak "Bellows" camera, rather than his Voigtlander. However, I have located one more colour slide showing my Fire Engine, fighting a fire that I had lit in a "barn" in the middle of my outdoor play area, the roads of which I had tarred several years previously. The scan will have to be done "one of these days!"

Still seeing what you can do with your camera blows the mind away and certainly puts to shame whatever I have photographed in recent years!  Keep doing what you do so very well.

Kind regards

POST-WAR AA UNIT COUPLE COMPARISON

Jan—-Lovely photos and so well done, to compare early and later post-war units. Very nice job of finding such nice examples. I really like those early finely treaded tires....I wish Dinky would have kept and used those in the late 50’s, when they resorted to using those much heavier treaded ones, which to me, looked just awful on the passenger cars.
A note on the AA Gun....as a young boy I got mine early, when about 9 years old, and I did carefully play with it a lot. I remember even then being very impressed with all the detail, plus the rotating turret which you could also raise with that tiny knob, and those folding floor pieces. A somewhat complicated model considering it was designed and introduced pre-war.
Best regards, Terry

Hello Terry, I do share your views on the AA Gun. So intricate, so complicated and still so solid and reliable that many survived without considerable damage. Its popularity as a toy, the quality of the model and its solidity must have contributed to the fact that it is one of the most common and easy to find early Dinky Toys nowadays. Kind regards, Jan

I believe the picture below can be rated as 'special'. It took several hours of trial and error, but I am satisfied with the result.

The image was inluded in a recently published 3 page article about the Trojan Delivery Vans, one spread shown.
