Some great new pictures and very impressed that you managed to re-index all your photos in only 10 hours. Well worth doing and I'll look forward to your future updates.

Great to see you back, Dave! I'm really impressed at your dedication in uploading all your photos again, and I see you have a load of new items again too.

Those petrol pumps are really nice. They are Master Models (Wardie). I also have a similar Shell-BP set.

Thanks All, It was worth the investment of time from my perspective, I constantly refer back here when purchasing to check the photo's up close for the condition of the items I already have. Having things documented in date order is also useful, although now I'm going to start posting photo's of my early acquisitions between when I started collecting in 2010 and this threads start in 2015 it won't be as clear as it has been in the past.

Over to this weeks new arrivals:

Atlas Editions First

Jeep Deppaneuse

Image

Image

Studebaker Ute and Traileer

Image

Image

One I've been anticipating for awhile, Saviem Pipe Transporter. I really like this big chunky old model.

With my original version for comparison:

Now for the original vintage items:

Triumph 1800

Nash Rambler Wagon

Mersey Police Land Rover, really bright paint work on this one. A shame someone has used ordinary tape on the box, which ruins it.

So fascinating to see original and Atlas models side by side. It clearly was a major project to get those Atlas models created as I don't think I have seen a single model yet that could be classed as coming from the original tooling which does help with stories of original tooling being scrapped for a lot of Dinky Toy models.

Even the artwork is only a close rendition of the original, not a duplicate. I just wonder how many more models will come from Atlas and for how long!

BTW, I want that georgous Black Galaxy, she is a stunner!

Thanks Ghosty, I've got a soft spot for the Galaxy too. The colour isn't captured very well in my photo's it' actually a very dark purple / damson plum type colour.

FINALLY I have managed to get myself a 505 Green Mk1 Foden flat truck with chains, I've been after one of these short production run (circa 6 mths in 1951/52?) models for 7 years and when they have shown up I always got blindsided by the prices achieved. Not anymore! More photo's to come when it arrives.

Just a few new models this week but very valued additions, particularly the Foden chain truck previewed above.

I acquired the 3 Fodens below in 1 lot, The grey tailboard being the only colour of these I already had. A few mismatched tyres, but I've got plenty of original spares to fix this.
