Dinky Toys were diecast model cars in about 1/43rd scale made by the well-known Meccano toy company in Liverpool (England) and Bobigny (France) from 1934. In the course of the decades the level of detail of these models, which were originally intended as accessories for model railways, became better and better. Production in France ceased in 1973, but several French models were produced in Spain for some years more by the company Pilen. The English branch had to close down in 1981. In the 1980s Matchbox bought the rights the use the name of "Dinky" and made a range of 1/43rd collectible scale models of classic cars from the 1940s to the 1960s under this name from 1988 to the mid-1990s, the "Dinky Collection". Replicas of French and later also English Dinky Toys models from the 1950s and 1960s have been released in partwork series by the Swiss and French publishing house Atlas since 2008.
