Jan—-That is both amazing and fascinating! And the color looks to be a perfect match to the Dinky Ovaltine version. Thanks for showing us that!
Best regards, Terry

Following on from my comment on the Bedford 480 KODAK, been looking at my schedule of price lists and noticed that there was not continuity of mention of the Bedford 481 OVALTINE. 

The price lists that I have, mention and including July 55 - September 56, then not mentioned until  January 59, not on the May 59, but then July 59 to January 60. The question I have is that the Meccano magazine introduces the model in September 55, so why did the model get listed on price lists two months earlier and why the break of listing?
