Matchbox Scammell Tipper K19 3
Matchbox Scammell Tipper K19 3
Lesney "Matchbox" "King Size" Model: Scammell Contractor Tipper Truck Reference number: K19 Scale: 1:69th according to Matchbox catalogues Actual scale: 1:64th based on the short wheelbase Contractor and height to top of cab. Length: overall 119mm wheelbase 74mm Made in England Lesney introduced their 'King Size' series into the 'Matchbox' line up in 1960. Interestingly 'King Size' was selected as the name because it related to the current 'Matchbox' series. Here matches linked to king sized cigarettes! This fact is mentioned in 'Collecting Matchbox Diecast Toys - The First Forty Years' by Kevin McGimpsey and Stewart Orr published for Matchbox International by Major Models in 1989. The 'King Size' series comprised of heavy duty work vehicles that were scaled to cars in the 'Matchbox' 1-75 series. As the 'King Size' series extended it did include cars but these were to a similar scale as those made by Corgi Toys and Dinky Toys. This Scammell Tipper Truck was released in 1967. In the 1967 Matchbox catalogue it was 6/11 raising to 7/6 in 1968. However, this example was in a box that had 6/6 in pencil! The cab and chassis is one unit made from die-cast zinc alloy. This is stove-enamelled in bright red. A waterside transfer is applied to both cab doors. This transfer design is a white solid triangle enclosed in a white circle. On the model the triangle's apex is at the top but on the box graphics it is on the bottom! The scowl ended dumper body is also zinc alloy and is stove enamelled in deep yellow. It is connected to the chassis by a steel pin with domed heads. The movement of the dumper part is controlled by a 'Hydrosleeve'. This is a plastic unit held in the chassis to which the hook section on the dumper base is inserted. This arrangement allows the dumper body to be held in the raised position. The bright metal baseplate covers about half of the chassis and is mainly under the cab section. The baseplate extends forward of the cab for the bumper and also at the sides under the doors to represent steps. A bright metal finished casting represents the cab mounted air horns. Cab windows are tinted plastic. The wheels hubs are plastic as are the tyres. Wheels are single on the front axle and double on the two rear axles. Suspension is fitted on the front and centre axles. The third axle is mounted so that there is play within holes. This allows posing options without the need for suspension! Finally, a black plastic piece is used for the grille area. Unfortunately, seats and steering wheel are not included! However, Lesney's mould makers showed their skill in casting with the Scammell name in the intake mounted on the bonnet! Wow! I was so impressed with this that I just had to take a picture. It is included in this set. I have, as yet, not found a picture of a dump body mounted on a Contractor. So was this an option available on the Contractor? Please do not use this image on websites, blogs or other media without my permission. Thanks. Chris
1955-1966 Peugeot 403 by Pininfarina
1955-1966 Peugeot 403 by Pininfarina
The Peugeot 403 is a car produced by French automobile manufacturer Peugeot from 1955 to 1966. The 403 debuted in saloon body style on 20 April 1955 at the Trocadero Palace in Paris. The engine size gave the car a fiscal horspower of 8 CV (8 hp) which placed it a class below the soon to be replaced 11 CV Citroen Traction, but at least one class above the small cars produced by the principal competitor manufacturers. When it was first shown, and through until after 1958, the leading edge of car's nose carried an angular, forward-leaning chrome lion hood ornament, the lion image being Peugeot's trade mark — which was removed in 1959 due to safety concerns, the logo incorporated into a shield-shaped grill emblem. Subsequently the semaphore-style trafficators on the C-pillars were replaced with flashing indicators within the light cluster. The front lights were modified to conform to new standards and parallel parking windscreen wipers were substituted for the original "not quite parallel" ones featured at launch. In the television detective series Columbo, the main character (portrayed by Peter Falk) drove a 1959 convertible model 403. Peugeot ran an advertising campaign that described Columbo as the most famous driver of the car. Superseded by the Peugeot 404 in 1960, the 403 remained in production as a budget alternative until 1966. Styled by Pininfarina, the 403 featured ponton, three-box styling incorporating an opening roof panel — and an enlarged version of the Peugeot 203's 1290 cc petrol engine. Displacing 1468 cc, the Straight-4 unit employed pushrod-actuated valves and a hemispherical or cross-flow combustion chambers to produce 65 hp (48 kW) at about 5000 rpm and 75 lb·ft (102 N·m) of torque at 2500 rpm. A diesel powered Peugeot 403 estate was introduced in the Autumn of 1958, the first of a long line, followed by a diesel saloon a year later. Upon the 203's discontinuation in 1960, its 1.3 litre powerplant became available as an option on the 403. The six-seat 403 had a solid rear axle fitted to an aluminum differential case. It came with a manual column shift and fully reclinable front seats. Sunroof and steel belted radial tires were standard. Reliability was considered excellent for the time.
