HISTORIA E INFORMACION

Los Dinky Toys nacieron en 1933, en Inglaterra.
Inicialmente se llamaron Modelled Miniatures porque eran accesorios para las plataformas de los trenes electricos en miniaturas fabricados por Franck Hornby. Hubo dos fabricas ; ulna en la calle Binns Road, en Liverpool, Inglaterra otra en Bobigny, Francia.
Todo el universo de los modelos fabricados por DINKY TOYS cubrieron reproducciones en miniatura de personas, edificios, arboles, señales,equipamiento militar, aviones, naviossy vehiculos en general.
La producción Britanica comenzó en 1933 y finalizó en 1964 cuando la Meccano Limited fue vendida a otros dueños.


Etapas

La collección podría ser focalizada en dos diferentes etapas. Pre y Post guerra.
La primera entre 1933 al 1940 y la segunda iniciada en navidad de 1945 hasta 1964.
La variedad de modelos alcanza a mas de 1000 unidades. Varias consideraciones deberan ser tomadas por los coleccionistas.
Por ejemplo las cajas de embalaje, el aspecto fisico de los modelos muchos de ellos con cambios en su fisonomia a través de su trayectoria de fabricación.
Los materiales utilizados en su fabricaciión fueron cambiados a traves del tiempo, el sistema de numeración de los modelos, las escalas y los colores.
Otro detalle es el diametro de los ejes. En preguerra eran más finos que despues.


Cambios

No hay forma de citar todos los cambios producidos en todos los modelos.
A pesar de ello será util mencionar los mas importantes.
El primero en 1946. Las llantas de las ruedas eran de planas y de material duro de fundición hasta este año. Dinky Toys despues colocó unas llantas con un reborde en el centro de la llanta y cubiertas de goma.
Mientras en Francia ulna escasez de goma los obligo a hacerlas todas macizas de metal por un tiempo. No existe ulna fecha exacta para los cambios en diferentes modelos ya que esto sucedia cuando se acababan los materiales en determiado modelo.
El primer Dinky Supertoys fue lanzado en 1947. Estos modelos grandes tenian un tipo propio de llantas, con ulna estampa sobresalida en el centro de la llanta, además las cubiertas de goma tenian relieve y barras. Hasta este punto, todas las cubiertas de los Dinky habian sido lisas, pero en los proximos años ulna completa variedad de cubiertas se lanzaron para autos y vehiculos comerciales. Entre 1933 a 1939 algunos camiones tienen 4 tipos diferentes de chasis, radiadores de fundicion en vez de los plateados de chapa, la rueda de auxilio sobre los guardabarros fue retirada en los modelos posteriores, la ventanilla trasera de las vans fue cerrada despues de la guerra, habia diferentes tipos de propaganda en los camiones, la aleación utilizada fue de fundición y plomo, mas tarde se reemplazó con otra aleación con mas cantidad de plomo, las ruedas primitivas eran totalmente metálicas, habia 4 tipos de chasis en los camiones de la serie 25, algunos vans y omnibus como los de la serie 34b tenian la ventana abierta y despues de la guerra cerrada, lo mismo ocurrio con los omnibus de la serie 29b.
Mas tarde en los años 40 los omnibus modelo Double Decker de la serie 29c/290 tenian tres tipos diferentes de radiadores en función a la marca de unidad que representaban, Leyland, Aclo y AEC.
Los camiones Foden primeros de la serie 500 se cambiaron por el numero 900 y tambien el tipo de radiador, los camiones Guy cambiaron el numero de serie original de 500 al 900. En 1956, Corgi Toys vino equipado con parabrisas de plastico transparente, el cual apareció en los Dinky Toys en 1958.
La suspensión comenzó en 1959, la dirección con el dedo en 1960, a su vez otras partes moviles y major detalle en otras partes en los años sesenta.


Sistema de Numeración del Catalogo

No podemos evitar de mencionar los cambios ocurridos en el Sistema de Numeros del Catalogo.
Por ejemplo los codigos de la serie 28 de vans de reparto, sin letras, fueron cambiados para tres digitos (en este caso 280) y el primer Dinky Supertoys comenzado como serie 500.
Los Dinky Toys britanicos cambiaron el sistema de numeración para 3 digitos en 1954, Los Dinky Toys franceses cambiaron a aun sistema equivalente durante el año 1959.
Los numeros 500 y 800 fueron resderados para los modelos franceses, y el sistema britanico fue preparado para este cambio pocos años antes, cuando la serie de Supertoys 500 fue renumerada con la 900 en el catalogo.
En Inglaterra los numeros de serie cambiaron entre 1954/56. La serie 500 hacia el 900 un año mas tarde y algunos se giraron a la serie 400. Por esta razon el catalogo Ingles de la Dinky en 1954 tuvo ambos numeros.
El sistema de Numeración adoptado fue entonces: 100's para autos, 200 a 249 para autos de carrera o sports y deportivos 250 a 299 vehiculos de servicios públicos (omnibus, camiones de bomberos, policia, ambulancias, camiones de residuos, etc.), 300's para vehiculos de agricultura; 400's para camiones livianos y medios; 600's para vehiculos militares; 700's para aviones y accesorios; 900 para Supertoys, incluyendo algunos pocos aviones.
Los numeros 500 de los Dinky toys franceses fueron usados para autos y pequeños camiones, con vehiculos militares, aviones, Supertoys y accesorios en la series 800.


Colores

Hubo varios cambios en la tonalidad de los colores desues de 1940 especialmente en la linea de los camiones como por ejemplo los Guys Lorries, Fodens y otros.
En el año 1956 hubo tambien muchos cambios cambiando uo agregando el brillo y doble tonalidad de colores para los autos.


Escalas

No podriamos decir que Dinky Toys a sido precisa en las escalas.
En 1957 el primer Dublo Dinky Toys apareció, pretendiendo (como el nombre "Dublo" implica) para uso en la medida 00 de FFCC y plataformas.
A pèsar de que unos pocos modelos de escala pequeña han sido producidos desde los años treinta, muchos Dinky Toys han sido construidos mas o menos en la escala 0. (por ejemplo algunos de los camiones pequeños aparecen demasiado pequeños para la ¨0¨): escalas 1/ 43 a 1/ 48, con grandes vehiculos generalmente hechos a ulna escala ligeramente mas pequeña a modo de no parecer excesivamente grandes entre otros modelos de vehiculos pequeños.
Las series de Dublo nunca realmente agarraron y se retiraron despues de pocos años, dejando ese espacio a Matchbox y otras firmas de ese tiempo, mientras Dinky y Corgi compitieron por el dominio en el area del 0 gauge.
En 1963 la filial britanica de Dinky Toys fue comprada or la firma Tri Ang. En el mismo año nacio la replica del primer auto antiguo, un Modelo Ford T.
La producción de Dinky Toys fue expandiendose. En 1965 seis autos Americanos fueron hechos en Hong Kong y además nació otro rango de tamaño, el pequeña escala Mini Dinky Toys, apareció en 1968.
Durante este era Dinky y Corgi comenzó a hacer otra escala mas grande 1/35, en lugar de 1/43. Mattel Hot Wheels en 1967 marcó ulna epoca en el tema de ruedas. Mas tarde Dinky Toys desarrolló el mismo tipo de ruedas


Restoracion

Muchos de nosotros disfrutamos el hecho de haber tenido Dinky Toys cuando eramos chicos.
Pero estabamos lejos de considerar en ese entonces que los futuros colleccionistas querrian que nosotros conservasemos los modelos en las cajas y en un estante para que quedaran en el estado llamado 'Mint/Boxed' cuando nosotros realmente nos creamos totalmente afuera de este asunto.
La verdad del asunto es que los Dinkys con los que jugamos son los que tienen historia.
Estos son los que nos dieron mucha diversión y entretenimiento. O sea que son esos los Dinkys que ahora necesitan restorarse por el estado en que se encuentran.
Para el caso de que se este pensando en venderlos en el estado que se encuentran por el solo hecho de ser Dinky toys los coleccionistas le pagaran muy poco.
En ese caso seria bueno buscar a un restorador en su pais o enviarlos a uno a otro lugar para que sea renovado por un experto con todos los materiales.
Podemos citar algun ejemplo de ellos como Aaron Dinky Recoveries en Inglaterra o The Maestro en Holanda ambos son excelentes y para encontrarlos están en In
ternet.

HISTORY AND INFORMATION

Dinky Toys were born in 1933, in England.
Initially called Modelled Miniatures because were accesories for miniature railroad platforms for the model trains manufactured by Frank Hornby. There were two factories; one in Binns Road, Liverpool, England other in Bobigny, France.
All the universe of models of DINKY TOYS covered miniature reproductions as people, buildings, trees, signals, military equipment, airplanes, vessels and vehicles in general.
British production started in 1933 and finished between 1964 when Meccano Limited was taked over by different owner.


Stages

Collection would be focused into two different stages. Pre and Post War.
First between 1933 up to 1940 and second initiated on Christmas of 1945 up to 1964.
The variety of models reach than 1000 different types.
Several considerations must be taken into accountby collectors. For example the packaging boxes, the physical aspect of the models itself most of them mutating within all their life span. Manufacturing materials used were changed through the years, the numbering system, the scales and the colours.
Another detail is the thickness of the axles. In prewar was 0.062 meanwhile after was 0.078.


Changes

No way to citate all the changes happened on each of models. Even though this fact it is important to mention of most important
The first in 1946. Wheels plain cast wheel hubs and rubber tires until then. Dinky Toys now lukes cast hubs with a raised central section.
Meanwhile in france shortage of rubber compelled to produce onepiece all metal wheels (including tires) for a time.
There is no an exact date for changes since this happened through the time once finishing existing stocks.
The first Dinky Supertoys were issued in 1947. These models of large vehicles had their own type of diecast wheel hubs, with a partly concave pattern, and treaded rubber tires.
Until this point, all Dinky tires had been slick, but in the next few years a variety of treaded rubber tires came into being for cars and commercial vehicles alike.
Between 1933 to 1939 some trucks have 4 types of chassis, cast radiators instead of silver plated ones, step wheel on wings was moved, rear windows in vans were closed after war, there were different casts of advertising on trucks, first models alloy were cast and lead later on an alloy with more lead, original wheels on full metal, there were 4 types of truck 25 series, some van and buses as 34b first series with open window last closed, bus, same as for 29b bus. Later on in forties Double decker buses series 29c/290 had three different radiators, Foden lorries first 500 series moved for 900 secon type radiator, Guy lorries moved front from 500 serie to 900 one. In 1956, Corgi Toys came equipped with clear plastic windows, which appeared in Dinky Toys in 1958. Suspension started in 1959, fingertip steering in 1960, and a wealth of moving and detailed parts in the Sixties.


System of Catalogue Numbers

We cannot avoid to mentionate the changes occurred in the Systems of Catalogue Numbers.
As an example codes for 28 series of delivery vans, with no letters, moved to three digit (in this case 280) and first Dinky Supertoys started as 500 series numbers.
British Dinky Toys changed to a three digit numeral system in 1954, French Dinky Toys changed to a similar all numeral system during 1959. The 500 and 800 numbers were reserved for the French models, and the British system was prepared for this change a few years earlier, when the 500 series of Supertoys was renumbered with new 900 catalog numbers.
The British number change at 1954/56. The 500 series moved to 900 a year later, and some were shifted to 400 series. For this reason the British Dinky catalog in 1954 gave both numbers. Numbering systems adopted was; 100's for cars, 200 to 249 for racing and sports cars 250 to 299 public service vehicles (buses, fire trucks, police cars, ambulances, road rollers, garbage trucks, etc.), 300's agricultural vehicles; 400's light and medium trucks; 600's military vehicles; 700's aircraft and accessories; 900 for Supertoys, including a few aircraft. The French Dinky 500 numbers were used for cars and small trucks, with military vehicles, aircraft, Supertoys and accessories in the 800 series.


Colours

Several changes in tone of colours were after 1940 specially in the line of trucks as Guys Lorries, Fodens and others. On the year 1956 there were many changes as bright two tone color schemes for cars.

Scales

Dinky Toys have tended to be inccurate. In 1957 the first Dublo Dinky Toys appeared, intended (as the "Dublo" name implies) for use on 00 gauge railroad platforms. Though a few small scale models had been produced since the Thirties, most Dinky Toys had been built more or less to 0 gauge. (I.e. some of the lorries looks far too small against ¨0¨): 1/ 43 to 1/ 48 scale, with larger vehicles generally made to a slightly smaller scale so as not to look excessively big beside models of smaller vehicles.
The Dublo series never really caught on and was withdrawn after a few years, leaving that field to Matchbox and other firms for the time being, while Dinky and Corgi competed for dominance in the 0 gauge area.
In 1963 the British branch of Dinky Toys was bought by the Tri Ang firm. Same year the first antique car, a Model T Ford, were issued.
Dinky Toys were expanding the production. In 1965 six American cars were made in Hong Kong and another range, the small scale Mini Dinky Toys, appeared in 1968. During this age Dinky and Corgi began to make to a larger scale 1/35, instead of 1/43. Mattel Hot Wheels in 1967 wrote the book on wheels. Later on Dinky Toys developed the same type of wheels

Restoration

Many of us enjoyed having Dinky Toys when we were kids.
So much so that we never considered that future collectors would want us to keep them in boxes in a bank vault so that they would remain 'Mint/Boxed' when we had grown out of them!
The truth of the matter is that the 'played-with' Dinkies are the ones with history.
It is these toys which gave so much enjoyment. So these Dinkys are which need to be restored. If you are planning to sell them in the way they are ´played-with' the collectors did not value them.
You can look for a restorer in your country or send them to any specialized experts. I can citate Aaron Dinky Recoveries in England or The Maestro in Holland both are on Internet.

STORIA E INFORMAZIONE

I primi modelli Dinky Toys sono stati fabbricati nel 1933, in Inghilterra.
Inizialmente chiamati "Modelled Miniatures" perche' erano accesori per modelli di treni fabbricati dalla Frank Hornby in due fabbriche; una situata sulla via Binns Road, a Liverpool, Inghilterra l´altra a Bobigny, Francia.
Il catalogo dei modelli DINKY TOYS compreva riproduzioni de persone, palazzi, alberi, signali, attrezzature militari, equipaggiamenti, aeri, vapori e veicoli in generale.
La produzione Britannica inizio' nel 1933 e fini' nel 1964 quando Meccano Limited cambio' proprieta'.


Tappe

Esistono due periodi per catalogare le collezioni. Prima e Post Guerra.
Prima fra il 1933 e il 1940 e la seconda inizia con il Natale del 1945 e termina nel 1964.
La varieta di modelli prodotti sono circa le 1000.
Ogni collezionista avra' modo di creare una sua collezione.
Comunque devono essere fatte alcune considerazioni. Nel tempo sono cambiate le scatole, l´aspetto fisico dei modelli, I materiali utilizzati, il sistema di numerazione, le scale ed i colori.


Cambiamenti

Non e' possibile citare in questa sede tutti i cambiamenti subiti dai modelli. Sono tanttissimi. Pero tantero' di menzionare i principali.
Il primo nel 1946. Ruote e pneumatici. Inizialmente eranno tutte piene ed alcuni modelli senza pneumatici. Dopo le ruote hanno profilato destaccando il centro.
In Francia non si disponeva di gomma e allora le ruote le hanno fatte tutta di mettallo.
Non esiste una data precisa dei cambiamenti. Questi si verificavano quando finivano i materiali. Quindi in diversi modelli i cambiamenti succedevano prima mentre che in altri dopo.
Il primo Dinky Supertoys e' nat nel 1947, questi modelli avevano i pneumatici rigati.
Fino ad allora i pneumatici erano lisci, senza righe, poi pero' negli anni successivi si produssero diversi tipi di pneumatici righati per i veicoli commerciali.
Fra 1933 e 1939 alcuni camion avevano 4 tipi diversi di chassis, i radiatori erano di materiale stampato invece di metallo argentato, il pneumatico di ricambio nello wings fu tirato, la finestra posteriore nei vans fu chiusa dopo la guerra, c'erano diversi tipi di pubblicita' sui camion, il materiale utilizzato nei primi modelli era lega di basso piombo e dopo una nuova lega con piu' piombo.
C'erano 4 tipi diversi di camion nella serie 25 per esempio, alcuni van e omnibus come le prime serie 34b con la finestra dietro aperta e dopo chiusa, lo stesso per il bus della serie 29b.
Dopo il bus di doppio piano Double decker della serie 29c/290 aveva tre differenti radiatori, in funzione dei modello e marca reale.
I Camion Foden prime serie 500 fu cambiata per 900 e altro tipo di radiatore, i camion Guy fu cambiato della 500 per la 900.
Nel 1956, la Corgi Toys equipaggiai suioi modelli con il cruscotto di plastica, la modifica ai suoi modelli fu fatta dalla Dinky Toys nel 1958.
Le sospenzioni furono messe nel 1959 e lo sterzo nel 1960, altre parti mobili gia' negli anni 60.


Sistema di Numerazione


Non possiamo non menzionare sui cambiamenti occorsi nei Sistema di Numerazione dei Cataloghi.
Come ad esempio la codificai per la serie 28 dei vans, senza lettera, cambiata a tre numeri (in questo caso 280) e i primi Dinky Supertoys comincianti come numero da 500.
La Dinky Toys Britannica ha cambiato a 3 numeri nel 1954, La Dinky Toys Francese ha cambiato il suo sistema nel 1959. I numeri 500 e 800 sono state riservati per i modelli francesi ed il sistema Britannico fu preparato per questo cambiamento diversi anni prima, quando la serie 500 di Supertoys fu renumerata con il numero 900 di catalogo.
Il numero Britannico fu cambiato nel 1954/56. La serie 500 cambiata a 900 un anno dopo, e alcuni furono cambiati alla serie 400. Per questa ragione il British Dinky catalog nel 1954 aveva entrambi i numeri.
Una idea del Sistema Numerico furono nominati : 100's per autoveicoli, 200 a 249 per le vetture di corsa e veicoli sportivi, 250 a 299 per i veicoli di servizi pubblici (omnibus, vigili del fuoco, pattuglia di polizia, pronto socorso, road rollers, camion di garbage, ecc.), 300's veicoli agricoli; 400's per i veicoli leggeri e piccoli camion; 600's i veicoli militari; 700's gli aeri ed accessori; 900 per Supertoys, compressi alcuni aeri. Per le Dinky Francesi la serie 500 fu utilizzata per autoveicoli e piccoli camions, i veicoli militari, aeri, Supertoys e accesori nella serie800.

Colori

Diversi cambiamenti sono stati fatti nei colori dopo 1940 specialmente nei camion come camion Guys Lorries, Fodens ed altri. Nel 1956 subirono altri cambiamenti come colori e doppio tono per autoveicoli.

Scale

Dinky Toys non e' stata proprio precisa. Nel 1957 il primo Dublo Dinky Toys nato (come il nome "Dublo" implica) per essere utilizzato sopra 00 gauge nelle piattaforme di ferrovie. Pero' pochi modelli in piccola scala sono stati prodotti nei 30s, molte Dinky Toys sono state costruiti piu' o meno nella scala 00 gauge. (per esempio vedere alcuni dei camion lorries diventano piccole da fronte alla scala ¨0¨): le scale 1/ 43 a 1/ 48, per i veicoli piu' grandi sono stati fabbricati in una scale minore per non diventare cosi' grossi in comparazione gli altri piu' piccoli.
La serie Dublo non ha lasciato prima il campo alla Matchbox ed altre fabbriche mentre Dinky e Corgi erano in competizione per dominare nella scala 00 gauge.
Nel 1963 la British Dinky fu acquista dalla azienda Tri Ang. Nello stesso anno il primo modello antico Dinky e' stato il Model T Ford.
Da quel momento la Dinky Toys allargava la sua produzione. nel 1965 sei carri americani furono fabbricati in Hong Kong ed anche altra dimensione piu' piccola fu lanciata la Mini Dinky Toys, nel 1968.
In questi anni Dinky e Corgi comiciarono a fare scale piu' grandi 1/35, invece della storica 1/43. Mattel Hot Wheels entro 1967 ha definito la parola in ruote. Dopo la Dinky Toys a sviluppato lo stezzo tipo di ruote.


Restorazione

Molti di noi abbiamo ricordato i Dinky Toys quando eravamo bambini.
Eravamo lontani dal pensare che i futuri collezionisti volevano che noi conservassimo i modelli dentro le scatole per averli 'Mint/Boxed'. Quando noi abbiamo cresciuto lontano dei Dinkys!
La verita' e che questi Dinkies hanno giocato con noi e pertanto appartengono alla nostra storia, gli altri no. Questi sono i modelli che ci dettero molto piacere. Quindi sono questi quelli che dobbiamo restorare.
Se tu hai l' idea di venderli nello stato come si trovano adesso nessuno verra' a pagarli niente. Sarebbe meglio trovare un rstoratore nel suo paese o inviarlo a un restoratore esperto.
Se non conosci nessuno poi tentare in Internet Aaron Dinky Recoveries in Inghilterra o The Maestro in Olanda
