This site covers over 60 Dinky models produced over the period 1964 to 1979 when the Binns Road, Meccano factory in Liverpool, England closed. The genres covered are Dinkys which were licensed from Films, TV shows or other entertainment media, were real or fictional space vehicles or were specials, created for fun rather than modelled on real vehicles.

This whole area of  the UK’s finest die-cast range is often ignored by more purist collectors who regard a ‘Zygon War Chariot’ as a Zamac abomination but one might argue that FAB 1 made up for the occasional aberration. If you don’t agree, click away now, if you do, scroll through a mouth watering, munificence of magnificent models that captured the hearts of children and some adults over 50 years ago.
