It’s been a year since my last visit to this toy fair in Brentwood, this time I didn’t actually buy much but the models I did buy fill a few gaps.

The Matchbox collection has always been the main focus and still trying to fill the gaps in the collection along with upgrading some of the playworn versions I have.

Firstly the Matchbox Jaguar  3.4 litre number 65, this is the smaller casting designated 65a with grey wheels and no glass, although most were blue the metallic blue is not as common.

The later casting with opening bonnet and usually dark red also numbered 65 would of been designated 65b, this one is already part of my collection, was also available with black wheels

Next another Matchbox. and another I didn’t have, the red version of the Fiat 1500 number 56.
