Hello- Can you help??

Recommended Posts

A big hello to you all - I'm new to the forum, and very glad to be here.

Just re-living my childhood (70's-80's) really and getting back into my Britains collection.

Xmases Birthdays and the hard saved pocket money got me a good selection back then, and I regret not being more careful with my early models-

I am now on the look out for my first set I ever had- i think a gift set tractor and trailer-Ford 6600 with Shawney-poole rear dump trailer (blue)

Anyone got one?-or pics of?

I'd love to be able to replace them-,and what would be a reasonable price to pay?- where would I look???

( sorry to be asking so many questions early on-but you seem a friendly bunch ;))

welcome to the forum homefarm ,

i dare say you'll see them come up on e-bay , but the prices can go from bargain to unbelieveable, another way is to put up what you want in the 'for sale & wanted' section on the forum.

 As well as collectors ,there are buyers & sellers & dealers here,  even udimore is a half decent chap ,well seeing as he's lost so much weight he really is half the man he used to be  :D :D :D :D

if these people haven't got it , they'll know someone who has

there is a links page here also, directing you to stockists that maybe able to help, the model shows are also a good place to be for what you want , you'll see when these are on in the 'farm related events' & if you can get to one , you'll be sure to get what you want  ;)

if you want help with anything , just ask  :) :) :) :)

Hi and welcome.

To add a little info to the set you are seeking.  Britains have issued this set many times, each issue has had a different version of Ford tractor.  It was produced from 1964 to 1981 and the Reference Number for the sets issued is 9630.  I have only one example of this set - a Ford Force 5000 Square Mudguards/Blue + Grey Cab/Auto Hitch but there must be at least 3 further versions available.  In the last year various versions of this set have been listed on Ebay and have sold for between ?77-00 and ?135 plus postage.

Thanks for the welcomes Guys and the info-very helpful.

The set I had was... (looking at ebay examples and bits of this site)- ford 6600,-white cab lid-blue sides,-white Mudguards,-jewel headlites-,blue and white bonnett-side decals....Does that narrow it down a bit??

It would of been between 1977-1982-4

if anyone has pic of the tractor or trailer in their collection-It would be great to confirm that I'm remembering this correctly

Hello homefarm... welcome to the forum from me as well... That was my first ever model as well  :-\

Good luck with your quest to get one.. and please remember to let us know how you get on... I too can recommend Barry (Udimore)... he has the "face for radio"... but he's a decent fella and an honest guy to boot  ;)

We must be about the same age (I'm 40  :-[ ) - and I remember that 6600 like it was yesterday  :-\

Bizzare that i've been looking around for years for something I had'nt seen in 20 odd- 5 minutes with you good people and I not only have pics but catalogue numbers !

What a marvelous bunch!- just hope I can be as helpful someday in return on this forum

Marky- I'm 32-but yes the same memories of ploughing the living room carpet no doubt..
