Like Jim has replied it is great to see them disassembled like this as each part has to be designed and manufactured then assembled. As we see in The Yesteryear Book 1956 to 1996 Matchbox edition, the amount of miner changes that do occur from time to time with each model produced. Many thanks for sharing this incite of the Refuse Truck. Cheers.

Another favorite in the range is this one.

Different roof boards with different size text, as well as different trim. Need to find a metal wheeled example now.

That is a nice duo. The RMC is indeed the rarer one. But the company is the same

I don't know much about these K series such as variations. Thank you for showing amazing examples

Did the K5 racing car transporter shown various times throughout this thread come with cars and if so which ones?

No, they never came with cars included in either Major pack or Kingsize format.

There are some differences between the Major Pack and Kingsize versions of the racing car transporter.Originally M6, it became K5 when the M series were dropped

A good start the the New Year with these arrivals today.


Difficult to find the correctly scaled load for the M6 as it's modeled at 116-1. The Y13 is 120-1
Close enough.

Senior Boarder
Sorry, Y13 should read 112-1, not 120-1. Should've checked, not relied on memory!

Going by what you have been showing us Bob is that you must have found someone with a collection of mint King Size Matchbox that are like new.
