Both great looking sets. I have the Dodge in both colors (Green/Yellow and Red/Blue)although not as nice as yours and I have the Market Gardeners truck too. I like the Simca Glass Trucks but have not been able to find one at a reasonable price. Still looking though.
Thanks for showing more of your fabulous collection.

Once again I thank you Jan for showing more of your collection especially those stake truck Dinky versions while those two Miroitier Simca cargo colour combinations is another bonus for us all to see.

Many thanks cheers.

Again, great combinations you have. Love the bottom row and have an original beige one. I don't have a cream Daimler and have both the white and blue ambulances but need to restore them. They have been on the bench for a few years now.
Keep up posting these as they are all great and nice to see your combinations.

A nice combination of Dinky Toys Jeeps, both military (no. 153a) and civilian (25j). The one in the centre is an issue 4 (1948-1952) with raised bonnet and paint spray ring underneath, whereas the others are issue 2 (1947), first casting with flat bonnet but with ridged instead of smooth hubs and open instead of closed steering wheel, no painting ring down under yet. Kind regards, Jan

For the cover of the December 2017 issue of the NAMAC magazine Auto in Miniatuur the editors asked me to take a photo of a nice combination of three various Dinky Toys. I thought an eight wheel tanker, a car and a road roller would be suitable to that purpose. So I put the trio below in front of my camera. Having that picture available anyway, I produced my annual Dinky Toys Christmas card with the same image. 

By the way: I hope it will not just be me contributing to this topic! Kind regards, Jan
