I agree that Spot on should have its own dedicated topic.....I'll put up a few photo's of the trucks later...It would be nice to have an ongoing section dedicated to Spot on toys, we have seen them in various sub topics...

I am full of admiration; what a collection. Especially the yellow Bedford, the way it looks at you, so good.

Boy you have some collection there Niall, so many rare and nice models.


I agree (although not a collector) that Spot on should have its own category/thread, I would just like to see more these wonderful models.

I was watching this Thames Trader on Ebay & I thought if it is still there by pay day I would buy it. Although the towing hitch is broken & it has no spare wheel it is in quite good condition. Niall if possible can you photograph the to hitch so as I can see what's missing please. I got concerned when I looked at the base as there are no markings but reading the book it say's that early bases were unmarked.






































I bought the milk float a couple of weeks ago it was on Ebay buy it now at a good price.

Luckily the policeman is looking into the right direction, the villain can be apprehended.


Great stuff Niall, that pink kitchen van reminds me of a visit to a rally cross event in the UK long, long time ago. They served horrendous snacks by the way.

Thanks Niall, that info is great, I think that this one will be my first & only lorry as they command high prices.


I got a couple of original spares on Ebay, the strecher, roof rack for the Austin Cambridge & a complete canoe paddle & roof rack for the 1100.
