There is a MOKO bulldozer here, not a Dinky. Very rare to find a box for these !

Incredible to see it laid out! To me it looks an ideal way to store and catalogue. So long as the moisture is low sun light is kept to a minimum and the temperature is consistently moderate.

I'd keep the curtains closed. I never let daylight in my model room.

The light blue window boxed SF with made in England on the back of them may contain some hard to find or rare final issue models with England bases.

I think you've made a really good start. There is now a clear structure in the way the models the stored, you can see what you've got, and and you've given yourself the room to be able to access individual models.
I'm sure your measured approach will pay dividends when you get as far as cataloguing.

Thanks for your help I have only put a fraction of the find in here I will not have room for it all.
All the days gone , LLedo ,Hotwheels,ERTL, Oxford, cararama, vanguards, corgi, and Maisto plus Johnny lightning and Majorette are in bin bags 26 in my loft of the house and same again still to sort in the garage and twice as much still to get round to mine so it looks like it will be a ongoing task
Thanks
Steve
