This catalog details the major visible variations between models. It also can act as a guide
for comparing values in auctions.

Rodger Darkens (tractorboy) private collection began when he was young. But as he grew older his interest waned until a few years ago his mum asked him what he wanted to do with his old diecasts.

His interest rekindled and his private collection grew to massive proportions. He found that Matchbox models could vary in size and colour. Also some models had other discrepancies and factory faults. Wheel changes were common as the factory ran out on one set of wheels, a limited amount of models would go on sale with larger or smaller sized wheels, or would change from yellow hub to green hub.

The values (if any) are approximate New Zealand currency prices.

This book would suit anyone. Its excellent for beginners and the veteran collector alike.

Kind Regards, Richard K (aka RVREVO)

This is an excellent guide and definitely worth having. Rodger is also a member on this site and a great help for the upcoming ToyPedia. In fact he has been one of the very first people that offered to help and I rank him very highly. Thanks for being such a good sport, Rodger!

Thanks to this guide I managed to find many unusual regular wheels I normally wouldn't have bought.
