This probably doesn't help?  Produced in 1955> of the 1953/54 article.  The condition of this toy is outstanding.

That car is in amazing condition, Alan!  That's very collectible and worth a lot of money when near mint, and 3 dimensional

I first cars I ever owned, were Dinky.  I'd a Vanwall, a Connaught, and a Talbot Lago.  But their paintwork soon had 'dinks' in them, from every conceivable angle. :shutup:


EDIT  :  For those arriving late, I'll add how frustrating it was to wait for new cars to be made.  A 1954 car in 1955, would have arrived at top speed!

When I first downloaded and put the

55mainbk.pbf" my car photos in GEM were in color and they were very nice, after a re-image and re-install, I just dropped the 55mainbk in and no change.


   What happened to this file?

Two items not included with the ORIGINAL 1955 Mod download, are available here as optional updates :


1/  A full colour front page, for those who prefer a colourful start. :)

2/  A repaint of the Gonzales Ferrari, with colours discovered to be more realistic than originally offered.  It's a lighter, brighter car, to better befit what little evidence we have.

The file 55mainbk.pbf must be placed within the layout folder of your GPL install.

Hi greg I did put it in my layout folder, tried it 3 or 5 times and set it to overwite. but nothing.  I'm going to try and delete all the previous version and try again.
                                          edit; nope that didn't work,  :hithead:
