This book on British-produced Military Dinky Toys takes a detailed look at the popular Army models together with an overview of those produced of Military Aircraft and Naval Ships. It covers the complete range of the military models produced from 1933 until the closure of the Binns Road factory in 1977. There is an image of each Army vehicle with captions showing dates of production, scale of the model, length, issue price, particular features and if it is a reissued model. Most of the images show the boxes that the models were originally sold in. A Meccano memo giving a table of Army Formation Signs and examples of Meccano production drawings completes the section. The sections on Military Aircraft and Naval Vessels lists the models produced and includes similar information to that provided for the Army vehicle for each model. The lists include images of a number of the models. Packed with rare and interesting examples, this is an essential read both for enthusiasts and those who would simply like to be reminded of the Dinky toys of their youth.
