Yes... AHI produced several series of vehicles. Some as shown above were direct copies of Matchbox (Lesney) items - others were stylised copies of other items. I have several complete sets and a lot of individual items. When I get htem photographed I'll post them here....

I'm not sure but my hair is now white!

Actually I have popped in from time to time but as all the notifications were ending up in my spam folder I forgot all about this thread and it was only because things were quiet at work that I spent some time looking at what topics WERE in the diecast area and realised I'd never checked back on this one (blush)

Like they say, better late than never.
Those toys look like Matchbox Copies, for sure. That must have happened a lot with Japanese toys back then.

Yes Jim - and not just Japan - there was a series of toys produced in NZ that used the Matchbox name and box style although the toys themselves (with the exception of the Landrover) did not look like any Matchbox toy. Also lots of copies made in Hong Kong in both plastic and metal.
