Yes, we know it's a little bit of a contradiction in terms, but here's where you can talk about Norev, Minialuxe, Siku, Polistil, Tomte, Auburn, Sun Rubber or any other ready-made model car that's made of plastic or rubber. Hey, they're still cast in dies!

The original company responcible for these trucks is

There are so many versions and re-issues of these it is difficult pinning them down to specific companies.

Your refuse truck package say that it was made in the British Crown Colony, Hong Kong. Interesting, that makes it made in or before 1997 Nice find and look at those prices. How old is that truck?

That's great to see them boxed and a photo of the real lorry working, I have not seen these boxed or packaged , my interest in plastic makes me look out for them they don't come up often
