Meccano Ltd,. Dinky’s honeymoon period ended in , when Mettoy finally decided that they wanted a slice of the diecast toy market, and launched Corgi Toys. Dinky Toys Packard Clipper, prelaunch for October Corgi were brutal in the way that they pressed home their newcomer’s advantage, including clear plastic in all their car designs and marketing their range as “The Ones With Windows”. This put Dinky into a difficult position: Abruptly relegated from being the unopposed market leader, Dinky suddenly found themselves being thought of by their market as “the ones without windows”.
Corgi had cleverly defined the distinction between Corgi and Dinky in a way that made the Dinky products most of which had been designed at a time when clear windows wouldn’t have been as practical automatically seem inferior. Dinky now had some serious competition, and had to start adding windows to their new models, but the question of what to do with the existing range was more difficult: the more models that Dinky included windows on, the more that buyers considered windows to be the norm, and the more out of date the older models looked.
Corgi had managed to take one of Dinky’s biggest advantages – the existence of a huge existing range of legacy designs – and turn it against them. Corgi’s models also sometimes also managed to look sleeker and prettier than the Dinky versions, even though it was often difficult to work out why – the aesthetics of designing a good diecast model had changed as the technology had matured, and older designs that had once looked reassuringly solid and robust and better able to better withstand variations in more primitive casting processes could now look slightly Jump to: navigation , search.

How To Determine The Value Of Dinky Toys And Other Die-Cast Model Cars
Paul Strange. Ref exe SH This could possibly be the rarest vehicle in the whole sale.
If you grew up before the 80s, you probably remember Dinky Toys. These sturdy die-cast miniature vehicles were produced in Liverpool, England from to.
Meccano Ltd. The new range of Dinky Toys were mostly vehicles – a mix of cast waterline-model ships, cars and vans, and aeroplanes, with the road vehicles mostly produced to a nominal scale in order to be compatible with Hornby’s large gauge 0 model railways. This use of cross-brand compatibility had appeared before when the company’s first examples of Hornby Trains and accessories were produced with Meccano nuts and bolts, and and with Meccano spacings and sizes, as a way of emphasising that the new brand was a continuation of a previous successful product range.
Once owners had a Hornby Series train layout, with trackside accessories including buildings, people, and street furniture, the next step was road vehicles, and once they’d bought a couple of Dinky cars as layout “garnish”, they’d have the beginnings of what might turn into a new collecting hobby. Not all of the new post pieces were to the same scale: for instance, the Dinky Double decker buses. Smaller scale was used for some larger models, such as the large lorries and industrial vehicles that later formed the basis of the [Dinky Supertoys]] range.
By this time, compatibility with 0-gauge model railways was becoming less of an issue, and Dinky experimented with smaller scale models to go with the newer half-sized-track gauge “Hornby Dublo” railway sets, although this ” Dublo Dinky ” range was short-lived. Some models with the fractionally larger scale started to appear in the range after Meccano Ltd.

Rare Dinky toy collection fetches £150k at Devon auction
Because the toy shown in this photo has silver spun chrome wheel hubs and ridged tires, it was probably manufactured in the s. As best I can tell, the versions of this VW produced in the s had painted ridged wheel hubs and smooth tires. The conical-head rivets attaching the baseplate to the diecast body also suggest that it was made in the 60s. The specific Beetle that this toy represents was built by Volkswagen between and , consistent with the fact that the toy was introduced in The car’s production year can be narrowed to this range because the toy has a rear window not visible in this photo that is Meccano’s best effort to represent an undivided oval window.
Undivided oval rear windows first appeared in Beetles in the model year; in and earlier years, the oval was divided in half vertically down the middle.
