<p>I always thought that the gendarmerie was the same as the cops.</p>
<p>Maybe that is because I am a law abiding, obedient citizen who has never seen a copper/gendarme up close.</p>
<p>Also found out that the Gendarmerie had blue Peugeot page not found cars,</p>

Yes I agree those that the eye likes then grab them as a must. Looks good.

Nice looking truck, they did a good job on it. Did you already have the trailers? I see they have different color hubs.

It came as a set Jim, the different colour hubs is a bit disappointing.

Re: Dinky Toys replicas from Atlas/DeAgostini 1 year, 7 months ago #1642

Yes, that is a shame. I thought you may have had the trailer already and just paired it up with the truck. You would think they could match the hubs.

Re: Dinky Toys replicas from Atlas/DeAgostini 1 year, 7 months ago #1643

<p>They could not match the colour of the hubs because Meccano always made the red trailer with green hubs and the yellow red pick-up with red hubs. Meccano never issued this set.</p>

Welcome Back, nice to see you again. Hopefully they will have a new site for us come the new year. I know they are working to that end. Lets hope it is sooner than later.
That is nice to know about the Studebaker and the trailer. I did not know that.

I like Atlas's thinking regarding the Studebaker Cammionette...

The wheels may not match but the two do couple well together.

Just failing to resist the temptation on an atlas Dinky is difficult.

I have picked up a couple more Atlas Dinky from a seller in China who has a drop station in Ontario. Free shipping and they were here in 16 days not the 1.5 to 2 months the ad and tracking by eBay said it would be. Must have come air to Ontario and then by air to here in BC and then of course by truck to me.
Studebaker Pickup Truck with Canopy 25Q $16.13 USD


I also picked up a Leyland Octopus Esso Tanker $19.49 USD


I still have to take my own pictures. These are from the eBay ad.

I like the Leyland Octopus and is a good representation of Dinky's original.
