Dinky Toys Pullmore Restores & Code 3.

The Dinky Bedford Pullmore transporters are among the more collected and popular Dinky Toys, and some of the first restorations I did were with them. This first is one of my favourite Pullmore Code 3 revamps. It is a straight forward respray of old and worn models that formed the Pullmore gift set, but the cars have all been restored in colours that were not in the original set. The Pullmore itself mirror’s the original paint scheme, but is in Orange and Cream Dinky Jekta colours rather two tone Blue.

This is the models collected together to make up the Code 3 set, as I first received them. The cars consist of Austin Somerset (poorly repainted), and Ford Zephyr, Rover 75 and Hillman Minx (all very playworn). The Pullmore itself has been very badly overpainted as can be seen.

 

As this was more or less a straight repaint I didn’t really take many pictures, these are the only ones I have of the set as it was being reassembled after the paintwork was done.

 

The rest of the pictures are of the finished set. The loading ramp was a reproduction sprayed to match. The decals are all home made (see my decal paper article on this site if you would like to know more about how). The box was produced by a good friend of mine and sets of the models superbly.

Just to show that I don’t Code 3 everything that comes my way. Here is a restore of the same set in it’s origonal colour scheme. makes an interesting comparison.

A rather eye catching version I did of the Pullmore, based on the colours of the rarer continental 984.

    Are you still doing the modelling? I haven’t seen anything dated recently. I just discovered your website.

      Hi there. I have not sold any ‘Code 3’ models for a while now, but still have a keen interest and an ever growing stock of models to be refurbished. I have in the last few weeks rented a garage to allow me to again get models resprayed. It will probably be next summer before any are ready for sale, but I plan to be back as soon as I can …. 🙂
