You may already know this, but there is a fellow in England selling what appears to models of early Dinky Toys which appear to be made from the original dies. The nice thing about them is you put them together which means you can paint them any way you want. The prices aren't bad either. Here's a Studebaker truck:

As a side note...
In my Mobil gas card bill, there was the typical pile o'crap 'buy this' offer slips in with the bill. One was for 1/32 scale fire trucks. They had an American LaFrance, a Mack, a GMC, and a 1925 Studebaker fire truck. $24.05 IIRC...

It's a real neat way to get into die cast collecting especially since you can personalize these models to your taste. The seller also sells decals if you are so inclined. He has a neat Ebay store with all kinds of extras- tires (sorry-"Tyres") etc.
...must...not....start....another....hobby.....[:p]
