Linking in to the great info Bruce has kindly provided in the Fodens thread, I've got a few questions that I've wondered about for years, I am fully aware that many of the answers may be lost in the mists of time.
Were Dinky retailers committed to take a minimum amount, say 6 of EVERY new release? Even re-colours on the same casting?
Were models ever issued Sale or Return? If so what happened to the returns?
Where models failed Production Quality Control, or were returned damaged by retailers what happened to them? Were they repaired? Or melted down?
Were all new models available everywhere in the UK at once?
Were Dinky products sold separately to shops, or did the Reps do Hornby, Meccano, Bayko, etc as well?
