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!

TOPIC: What make is this?

A lone plastic model that is simple yet cleanly done, I quite like it. It is made of hard plastic and there are no marks or signs on it to indicate what it is. Does anyone have a clue?

It is a lovely little car, I have seen these in little sets before , with no makers name on just Made In Hong Kong, it may also be from a Christmas Cracker..not sure though.

I am not going to offer a particular maker here, but the wheels are very similar if not identical to those fitted on 'PYRO' hard plastic single seater race cars and while I know of at least One direct copy of the Pyro race car, the toy pictured above is not it, but very close!

That is pretty amazing. The wheels indeed seem identical. There are small differences in the body like my driver is more recumbent in the car and has the steeringwheel attached to it, but they could just be differences because of a different model.


It could also be a close knockoff but I am happy with the `could be Pyro´ verdict.


Also looking at the axles in the body it looks pretty much the same.

Postimages has gone on the fritz. I see Kevin is also having problems posting pictures. I have the next 2 pictures on my desktop but can't access Post Images. Nope, maybe it is down for maintenance.

<p>Thanks a lot Jim &amp; Rollerman.</p>
<p>Searching for these Hong Kong brands can be tricky as they have little presence on the internet. At least as far as I have been able to find out.</p>
<p>What is the correct way to upload images these days? I haven't been able to get it to work today.</p>
<p>Thanks</p>

Most if us are using postimages.org/
Use the Quick Reply button on the bottom right so you don't get all that HTML coding in your messages. Makes it much easier to read.
When using Post Images, load the picture from your computer and it will generate a list of ways to post the picture. Use the third line from the bottom, "Hot Link for Forums" Just click on the blue page icon at the far right of the line to copy and then just paste it into your text box where you want it. Post and your done. You can add a few pictures at a time If you like too. Choose the 'One Row" option as the others will give more spacing between the photos.
