MODELS
Welcome to my 1to87 web site
The following photos are of my private collection of HO scale, Matchbox, Johnny Lightning, and Dinky Toys vehicles. The models are not for sale.

I grew up on a cattle ranch in Namibia - southern Africa. As long as I can remember I played with Dinky Toys on the ranch and later in the boarding school. The first Dinky Toy I had bought with my own money was the Volkswagen - it cost me 4 shillings. Most of the cars and trucks were trade-ins or bought used from well-to-do kids in the boarding school. Even as a ten year old I repaired and painted them. And I kept them all. A friend of mine introduced me to HO trains, but over the years my interests shifted over to 1/87 vehicles, mostly of models of the 40s, 50s and 60s. I hope you enjoy the pictures.
