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!

<p>Hi All:</p>
<p>Been a while since I have visited here, and rather looking forward to renewing old acquaintances and making new ones. My collecting focus has changed as I have gotten rid of all my Dinky stuff, and am concentrating on my Tomte collection as well as other manufacturers of the same type.</p>
<p>I am working on a database for all makes and all models and colours of those makes. It has been a challenge sometimes, but also a lot of fun trying to get info and pictures of each one. I cannot go willy nilly as so many makers did not put their logo nor numbers on their models. I believe the only ones who number them were Tomte, Miniflex, and Miracle Mart.</p>
<p>Anyway, enough of that. I have a question for the group. I stumbled across these two items on eBay and am a bit confused. As far as I am aware, only Stelco made the 1:66 scale models, but these cards are clearly labelled Vinyl Line. then I noticed they also said Stelco at the bottom.</p>
<p>My question is are these two companies the same, did one buy the other out, or did they collaborate on some models? Both companies are /were based out of West Germany. I would appreciate any insight into this!</p>
<p>Apparently it is still a closely guarded state secret on how to upload pictures on this forum, so if any one wants to see the pics, you will have to email me, or tell me how to do it. </p>

<p>Stelco's use of the vinyl-Line name does suggest a connection between the two companies as they share the same Train logo carrying the Vinyl-Line name. Stelco were completely taken over by Tomy in 1979. Rollerman.</p>

<p>Thanks for the information. It just seemed weird to see both logos on the package. Still no clue as to how to upload images here but the links to the listings are below if anyone wants to see them.</p>

Hello Cam, long time to hear from. Glad your back and all is well.
For picture uploading all you need is this link.
postimages.org/
Bookmark it and it is easy to use. Don't change anything on the first page you come to. Just click on "Choose Images" and then it goes to your computer where you pick the picture you want. If that picture is on the net, right click on it and click Save As and save it to your desktop or where ever you like.
Once you choose the picture or pictures (it will load quite a few a one time but always in numerical order) it will generate a list of codes. Choose the code you want. If loading only one picture you get a list and you want the third from the bottom choice, Hot link for Forums. There is also a thumbnail selection a bit further up . If multiple photos I like to choose "Hot link for Forums". Copy it and then paste into your box you type into when posting. It comes through as text but shows as pictures after posting. Here are your two taken from your links and saved to my desk top.


Normally I crop this line or lines like it out of the photos. I have left it in to show you.
