One thing I always loved as a kid was tow trucks. Of course, I also loved anything that was an army vehicle. Now, I don’t build much if any armor, but thanks to the Dinky company I can satisfy both my childhood loves with the Scammell Recovery Tractor!
This is an old Dinky Toy from the late ‘50s and into the ‘60s. Like all Dinkys it’s a really hefty toy with some neat, albeit crude, detail. Sure, it’s not as precise as a kit, but the old military Dinkys have a feel and presence all their own. Being someone who’s interested in armour, but not enough to build it, I find replicas like this are indispensable. Add to the fact that the thing is, in itself, a relic, and it’s even cooler!
