Default Gerry Anderson Dinky Models

Having recently re-read the excellent Gerry Anderson Dinky Toys book that came with last year's membership, I was inspired to buy one of the models from ebay (the originals having been rather a number of years before my time). I ended up going for a near mint condition unboxed Sam's Car (108) from Joe 90 and it looks rather wonderful.

I can appreciate that collecting the whole set and a few variations could be a very costly exercise, so in these hard economic times, can anyone out there recommend a few of the best models to seek out?

I can recommend The Model T Ford (109) with Father Unwin at the wheel from The Secret Service but as it was a boxed model and mint I had to pay 75 but it was worth it.

The Joe's Car was pretty nifty but pretty expensive if you want an original tray and box, all in good nick. If you're prepared to accept all the cardboard bits as reproductions and go for a nice actual toy maybe not so bad...

hi there, I've got my collection of diecasts together by buying old tired ones and restoring them, and having repro boxes made. A cheap way to get a collection together.
