I agree Tick, WoW! Incredible that these toys are still available in this condition. Shows that there are still collectors out there that have them and are selling. Nice to see and I agree, it could be expensive for some. Nice K10 and the M4 is wonderful. great toy to restore too as I have done a couple now. Another must have is the Dodge Tractor with Twin Tippers. Wonderful model and I have restored one for Oldtruck56 a member here and another for a customer in Peru.

Welcome YYS4BOB aboard to Planet Diecast from Australia. Excellent Kings Size in good condition and yes they would not have come cheap. That is for sure and many thanks for posting them on here for us to see. Cheers.

The twin tipper Dodge was one I always wanted as a youngster, but never had. Although it's a later model and therefore in a window box, I might just get one if I can find a top notch example. Not chasing variations (yet) just an example of those I like. Will probably give the farmyard stuff a miss.

The funny thing is that it's not mine, but my brother's. We always had our initials written in pencil on the boxes and FW are not mine ...
The model's condition is quite nice, but when I re-opened the box after many years I found the tracks crumbled to hard pieces on the bottom of the box.
So the tracks are replacements. Kind regards, Jan

Jim:

Just looking at your post on the Super Kings Airplane transport. I have had one of these sitting one display for a few years without an airplane, which are impossible to find anywhere. I thought I would do a unique custom build...maybe something sci-fi to suit the futuristic cabs of these Super Kings. is there a possibility that you could give me the length and width of the fuselage and the span of the one wing you have?

It's been a while coming, but the first K8 Scammell has finally arrived.

Have added loads since last post. Have another of these on the way too.
