Diecast Models - DINKY

 

See HOME for more

These are Dinky's that have been repainted and only had after market parts added in some instances.  Repaints generally have been done in non original colours and styles although there are a few in this lot where they have been repainted as close to the original colours.  No physical alterations have been done to these models.  Where more major alterations have been done they have been listed under Code 3 Models.

This lovely casting has been stripped and repainted in non Dinky colours. The windscreen need attention being bent as usual. I have used a two tone combination which interestingly is quite rare to find on original cars. I have used Micro model hubs and tyres which I prefer to the dinky versions

Seems to be a favourite with Code 3 modellers. I have done four. This one done in Triumph livery. See link below for more Pullmore photos. All my Pullmores' are fitted with an internal ramp which seemed more realistic than the ramp Dinky supplied.

Has been repaired and repainted from a model in very poor condition. The driver side door was pushed in and had to have some "panel beating" done to it. A satisfying result.
