If you collect on a postal theme - and there have been numerous new opportunities from post offices around the globe over the past year or so, then you'll be pleased to learn that the British Post Office have launched a new range of iconic vans and delivery vehicles this month. 

The first in the theme is a 1967 Ford Anglia van, limited to 5,000 pieces worldwide. The design is timely in that it depicts the famous 'Don't miss the Christmas post' branding to its side. The 1:43 scale model retails at £15.95, and is available from the shop section at www.royalmail.com.

Further models in the eight-strong series are to include an Austin A35, a Morris Z and a Series 1 Land Rover.
