Hi Richard, quite some colour variations! I only have three. Two of which are different from yours. Some pictures:
The scale issue of this model is interesting too, as it is the lonely single 1950s model which does not have a scale match with another Dinky model, as shown in the Dinky, Dublo & Horby Scales List of 30 October 1949, with extensions up to 16 February 1961. Many post-war re-issues of pre-war models do not show up in that list, which explains why the 23m/23s Thunderbolt and it's later Streamlines Racing Car issues are being neglected, which happens to have the same scale:
Length of the real Thunderbolt (as stated by Meccano): 30
Very interesting Jan. A thing that I will never understand is why Meccano changed so often of scales ! They probably did not think to the harmony in a collector cabinet ! Friendly yours
Other 1/72 scale models are :
17 - 18 - 18 - 20 - 21 Trains 25 r Forward control lorry. 60 y Thompson refueling tender. 722 Hawker Harrier. and 29 d - 570 Autobus Parisien Somua OP5-2.
In the 1890s, M
