19 April 2013 I understand from Jose Heraud a contributor to the site that Mike Richardson, author and eminent toy collector and appraiser, has passed away today in Poitiers, France where he was hospitalized ten days ago due to a stroke.
June 2012 Added a new feature page on Dinky Esso tankers by John Morris.
30 October 2011 Today has seen the completion of a full review and update of the Matchbox pages. Particular thanks go to Eugene Irniger who has provided many corrections and a wealth of new images.

17 April 2011 Added a new tab to show the most popular pages on the site.
13 March 2011 Changed the layout of the model pages to show two columns of images on the left rather than one. The brief outages of the database over the last couple of weeks where as a result of a failed UPS. This has now been replaced.
13 September 2010 The database pages will be off line for short periods over the next couple of days for maintenance.
7 March 2010 The database pages will be off line for periods today for an upgrade.
October 2009 Added links from tags to pages that show all the models with a matching tag.
May 2009 New features on the site. You can now add tags to the model detail pages so if you know about a model you can add appropriate tags. For example if you know that the model was fitted with suspension just add the suspension tag to it's page. This way you can help improve the information on the site. In future more tag related features will be added to the site like search by tag. If you can't find an appropriate tag in the list just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
