    Hi StukaF
    I had loads of Dinky toys when I was young until my dad told me to grow up one day and dumped the whole lot. The first picture is a vehicle used in a Sci-Fi show over here in the sixties called UFO. The other two I am unsure of. I know they can fetch high prices but it all depends on condition.

    Hi Kris, the tank is a British Chieftan. I still have mine!

    Nice ones, Kris....................!

    My two brothers had some of these Dinky vehicles in the late 50's
    or early 60's and they were handed down to me. After a time,
    Mother gave most of them away to the kid next door........

    I also had a 'Centurion' tank on a carrier/trailer, an ambulance,
    a Howitzer cannon, an 'Austin Champ', and some sort of
    wheeled armored car with a turret. I like the knobby
    tires and detailed little driver figures inside.

    The older original series are the most expensive I think. Saw an
    older but mint 'U.S. Jeep' not that long ago selling
    in a shop for $125.


    I'm sure there are a lot of these lounging around in our collections...

    Kris, just found this thread, seeing though I am crap with plastic model kits and painting them...much more at home with a spray can and screwdriver...I thought I would kill some time by restoring some of the "Dinky" Leopard range of tanks...bought a few wrecked/well played with examples and armed with replacement spares and a can of Olivegelb here is the result.............very soothing and calming experience ! I shall do some more...
    Prost ! Steve.
