Drawing up the balance sheet for 2013

My comprehensive Dinky catalogue and the production of my annual supplements are lagging far behind, so why not quickly assembling a picture collage of my acquisitions of 2013 on this 31st of December?

I just went into my 35th year of active Dinky collecting this month, (not deliberately) maintaining a remarkably stable average of about 15 Dinky additions every year. This year's harvest does not deviate far from that either!
Any remarkable annual acquisitions to report by other DTCA members? It would be nice to share.
Have a nice New Year's Eve! Best regards, Jan

Hi Jan your collage set me thinking. How many Dinky's did I acquire in 2013 (and indeed what were they)? After a little research I can report 15. I attach a picture of nine of them still on my desk.

Hi Jan

I remember when you bought the blue single deck bus because I was with you and bought a green version from the same seller at Donington.

Here are my other new items from 2013:

Some of them, the Octopus, Big Bedford, Chivers, Dodge Tipper and Forward Control Lorry are replacements for previous items.

I am going through an improvment programme in my collection rather than increasing the size of the collection and this will hopefully continue in 2014.

Seems the 29E is the toy for 2013... here are some of my purchases for 2013, the other 25 or so I still need to collect.

Nice to see the results of the collecting efforts of all of you. Hope more will join in, even if only with quick snapshots.
Dave, superb Weetabix you scored! I agree as replacing is concerned. This year the military breakdown vehicle is my only real replacement of a poorer example, but indeed, more and more, quality is winning from quantity, as I am concerned, resulting in a nicer but stable collection. Kind regards, Jan
