These pictures are in no particular order but I am looking to ID the Orange Bull Dozer. Now name just Lesney England but not so sure about that.
Any ideas?

They both say Cat D on the front top of the engine cover. Is this a second issue #18 ? it has no blade so I though a #8 but that is smaller than the #18

It's definitely not a Matchbox. The only casting without an operator they ever made is the 1964 No. 8d (crawler) and No. 18d (bulldozer), both of which have a baseplate held on with a tongue in front and a rivet in the centre. There are numerous other differences and they only ever came in yellow.

I think you have dug up something extremely rare here and you should bring it to the attention of the Vintage British Diecast Forum. I bet those anoraks there can ident it in five minutes, too.

A Lone Star perhaps?

Lone Star only made a generic one and a Euclid 82-80.

Well it is a matchbox Copy as you can see from the engine cowl and the Cat D8 imprint on it.
