Here's where you can discuss all general diecast stuff - mystery items, ask who made a model of a particular car, ask for info about an obscure manufacturer or chat about anything else related to vehicles smaller than 1:1 scale!

<p>Great truck Andy! I tried to look up what the handle does, but although there are a lot of pictures on the net, it is not explained anywhere. I suppose it transports the pallets to the rear.</p>

Yes, it moves the two trays in the back of the van that are staggered when all the way in so three levels for three pallets.

It is a great model , you put the first pallet in then wind it back, then the second & again wind it back then you put the next pallet on the lorries bed, you wind it the opposite way & it pushes the pallets out, it is a fantastic model & it is no wonder it commands a high price today, as i said out of my early Dinky's it is by far my favourite.
Thanks for the advice on the tonsils Nobleco but being a child of 54 years I will avoid that op, I have been told it is not a very nice experience for adults, my sister told me (not sure how true) that when you can divide your body age by seven it changes so by the time I am 56 hopefully the tonsillitis will go but my collecting will stay the same

Love the Corvette.
What type of tail lights does it have.
I think jeweled lights are the most sought after.

Andy, the Pallett truck is one of my favourites too. Nicely paired with the fork lift

As for COVID...… I go off on many collection tangents. It's when I acquire a particular model and it sends me off on specific collection task. A long time ago I picked up a Dinky Bedford TK garbage truck simply because it was a Dinky and a good price. Well that got me on to the other TK models. Tippers, Tow Truck/Wreckers, Coca Cola Delivery, etc. The cargo truck with Castrol decals has eluded me though as it is rarer (in decent condition that is) and often beyond my budget. Well just recently I was finally able to get one

<p>I didn't get this recently but I did rediscover it during a pandemic shed audit.... now in progress. I had the real thing back in 1964... 200cc 8 BHP cable brakes on the front wheels only...</p>

I had no idea that there were cars out there with my last name. Found some Noble Cars and your Nobel car too.
