The pictures keep getting better and better - thanks. :thumbsup: Did you find many of them in Canada, or mostly online? Just curious if they were more common north of the border. In the US in the 1960-70s, one local toy store carried many of the Dinky range. Not that common in the US back then, I think.

I would say that all except for a handful were purchased on line and from all parts of the world. Dinky and Corgi were available in Canada at the time. I always envied my older cousins Dinky and Corgi's as I was always bought Matchbox. I do remember getting a Corgi Impala police car in 1964 for my 5th birthday and a couple of years later a Corgi military 109 wb Land Rover and a yellow Corgi VW pick up with a red canopy. Those were the only 3 larger scale models i ever owned until I made up for lost time as an adult collector starting in 2001. It all started then when I went into this Hobby shop about 30 minutes from my home in a near by town. He had a large old display case with various vintage die cast and I was hooked. Click on the link and you can take a tour with pictures or a video.

I don't collect Dinky Toys but I have some to add.









This Britannia prop airliner has the wrong color cheat stripes, they should be red, but they are original. The props are replacements. The originals were red.

The blue van with the roof speakers reminds me of a scene in one episode of the TV show Keeping Up Appearances :D

Some of those models inspired the Matchbox series!
