Matchbox Big M x Mechanised Coal Hopper & Tipper "LAING" Leyland Truck BM4 King Size By Lesney Products & Co. Limited London England 1972 - 4 Of 31

I've had these great little Matchbox mechanised toy sets since I was a boy In the seventies, I never really played with them, I just displayed my toys, that's why these sets are In great condition. I was cleaning a few of my models and thought I would show how these worked. There were six different sets altogether, Mechanised Coal Hopper & Tipper Leyland Truck BM4 King Size, Fire Rescue & Mechanised Fire Engine, Mechanised Incinerator Site & Refuse Truck, Mechanised Tractor Plant & Winch Transporter, Construction Site & Mechanised Scammell "Laing" Mobile Crane, and the last one, Mechanised Quarry Site & Traxcavator. They were really special looking sets, and sadly didn't last long. I made a couple of videos showing how the two of my sets work, this one above and this link to the other one. I hope you enjoy them. :)
