This was another toy bought from the Toy Project in Selfridges, the Rollermatics Clipper, note this has a silver base which was normally metallic green and the tail pipes are not chrome.

I believe we have some experts here on Matchbox Boxes. Customer of mine has a #49 Halftrack and the tracks I sell he says are too long. Here are a couple photos of the box as I think it is not an early issue but a later issue from post MB era. Anyone have an answer for me, please?

This model only exists in one size so only one size of rubber track should fit. The model was introduced in 1958 and deleted in 1967. A 'D' box is shown.

Then I wonder why the tracks I sell, and I have sold hundreds of set, will not fit his toy. see pictures below.

Well that is who I bought my last hundred tracks from and the one in question is one of the two the last ones I have. One I sold and he has decided it is not that big a deal and does not want to send it back. I have one track set left and they measure 38mm when pressed flat. I wonder if he got two different sets mixed up? or what happened.

You can always ask Rob if he recognizes the issue?
