Owing to the current ongoing situation, the DTCA 2020 AGM which had been booked for the end of June, cannot now take place.   We will have to try and reschedule for later in the year once matters are clearer.

It is anticipated that the next issue of the DTCA Journal will be posted in the first two weeks of May. 

Production of the DTCA special edition Omnisport model, mentioned in the previous journal, has been postponed.

Hi all from New Zealand.

 

A recently acquired 23a without driver seems to b the same as John's one only blue instead of red and cream.  The axles are domed on one end and crimped of the other

HI Ron,

This is a 23 Racing Car, not a 23a. It was announced in Meccano Magazine in April 1934, first made from lead (as yours, I think), then Zamac, abandoned end of 1934, when a new casting appeared for 23a Racing Car.

A rare and nice example you have got here, Ron, still with its original white tyres.

Congratulations and Regards from Thailand
Walter

dear all,

Despite the last post on 23A was a couple of years ago, I would like to share my 23 A's with you. I assume the yellow one is the oldest (no exhaust and driver), having quite some milage on the tyres... I appreciate you input! Bas

Hi Bas, that's quite a fleet of 23/23a models you show us! These red hubbed ones look very similar. I presume there are some subtle differences in characteristics, or are they basically the same? Kind regards, Jan

Hi

The yellow one is a Dinky copy, made by Johillco, lead, produced in the mid-30ies.

Hi Bas

When you say "the yellow one is exit @Jan" I don't understand. Have you thrown it in the bin??? :)

Hi , no, I did not throw the yellow Johilco in the bin :-), but txs to the feedback it is no longer part of my Dinky collection. And my other response was to Jan in relation to the set with red hubs...
