Hi Nigel,
Tony Bird has done many toy conversions, including Postman Pat, and has written them up on here. Do a search for his name or for Postman Pat and you should find them. He may well be along at some point and answer you directly.

Tony also puts a lot of videos of said conversions up on YouTube, all under his name, again worth a quick search.
