THE BEATLES REVOLVER DIE-CAST VEHICLES

Revolver is the seventh album by English rock band The Beatles, released on 5 August 1966. The album showcased a number of new stylistic developments which would become more pronounced on later albums. Many of the tracks on Revolver are marked by an electric guitar-rock sound, in contrast with their previous, folk-rock inspired Rubber Soul. It reached #1 on the UK chart for seven weeks and #1 on the U.S. chart for six weeks.

Revolver was released before the Beatles' last tour in August 1966, but they did not perform songs from the album live. Their reasoning for this was that many of the tracks on the album, for example "Tomorrow Never Knows", were too complex to perform with live instruments.

WHITE TAIL RESERVE 1946 DODGE POWER WAGON





The Plains of North Texas aren’t the ideal habitat for the white tail deer, but this species thrive there. Hunters often come from a great distance to bag that buck of a lifetime. This has been true for many years and, back in the ‘40s, hunters discovered that they could go just about anywhere behind the wheel of the new generation of civilian 4X4s. While an ordinary car or truck would get struck or simply be unable to negotiate the rough terrain, a four-wheel drive vehicle could take the hunter into previously unexplored territory.

One such vehicle was the Dodge Power Wagon, which was first adapted for street use in 1946. Based on a successful World War II design, the civilian Power Wagon was advertised as a “self-propelled power plant.” It could transport loads up to 3,000 pounds. Equipped with a powerful 92 horsepower engine, the Power Wagon also came with an optional winch that had a 7,500 pound capacity. With its big tires and front bumper and heavy duty shock absorbers, the Power Wagon looked like it could take on anything. Yet, Dodge also considered driver comfort with standard deluxe seat and back cushions and driver sun visor, as well as a deluxe cab package. A classic post-war vehicle and a true forerunner of the modern 4x4 phenomenon, the Dodge Power Wagon continued to be produced until 1980.

Now, the classic 1946 Dodge Power Wagon is recaptured in all its distinctive detail-from the winch in front to its wide tread tires. It is decorated with the graphics of the “White Tail Reserve” of North Texas Plains. And it is crafted with hunting rifles, gun and bow cases and everything needed for outdoor camping and hunting. This fascinating model is produced by-and available only from-Matchbox Collectibles.

SUNSTAR 1/24 GREEN LINE ROUTEMASTER COACH







In 1964, less than two years after their introduction, it was decided to give a face-lift to the RMC’s. The main changes were at the front where the wings were revised to give a smoother, deeper line, the brake vents were omitted and the registration plate was attached beneath the lower edge of the body. The “via” box was widened to match the main destination blind box and the lower half of the front ventilation grille was covered to form a continuous band between the two decks. The main livery changes included the disappearance of the main Green Line wording on the side of the lower decks and the use of decals for a revised roundel which was moved forward on the sides to below the first window of the upper deck.
