Nice score on that Dodge Double tipper in the first photo. I have restored a couple of them. I see you like the RR Silver Cloud too. I like to do them in two-tones of different colors that were not done my Dinky and should have bee.n.
Looks like you have made some larger purchases too. Were these in lots or single purchases at toy fairs. I wish we had them over here. Next time to Britain I am making sure we are there for at least one toy fair. Mail it all home as used toys and don't get charged duty either.

Each photo represents one toy fair yield. Most of the models were acquired one by one, but I sometimes make a succesful low offer on an entire "50p" box.
If you refer to the Dinky Royces, they are Wraiths, not Clouds. I have at least one example of every Dinky Royce made, except that pre war thing and sadly also the FAB1.

Yes of course they are Wraiths. Don't know what I was thinking. I still have one on my desk to do this winter some time.

You can make them into cheesy pink and white "wedding cars" and watch the $$$$$s roll in on eBay.

Ugly color but I bet it does sell well.
The ones I have in this picture have been either for myself or for customers in the past. I have done a few in the White over red that sold really well and the Blood and Custard ones sell well to. I am not sure of the colors for the next one but I am thinking Light Blue over Dark Blue would look good.

Sounds like you have your work cut out for you. I still have some toys from years past that I wanted to restore. Most of what I did the past few months has been just that. Catching up.
