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!

Victory Industries Models Produced in Guildford Surery UK 7 years ago #1

Fresh Boarder
Hi,


 


As a hobby I make a range of replacement parts for these 1950s/60s 1/18th scale british plastic battery operated models.  I also know them inside out so if I can help let me know. I hope to make some parts for the Triang 1/20th models next year


 


Regards

Warm Welcome to the site. The window units for some Victory Models seem to be a problem do you reproduce them ?

Welcome from Basingstoke in the UK, Guilford is about 45 mins drive from me. You show us what you do.

Yes the Morris Minor is a popular model. Price generally depends on which variant as Victory made several also which colour, is it boxed and when you sell it. Sometimes condition does'nt seem to make a lot of difference though!


I recently had an order for six sets of bumpers from a Minor enthusiast!!

Here is a photo of a 1953 Vauxhall Velox made of plastic, battery operated with turnable front wheels about 9 ins long. This is the second type which was made in red, white, light grey, light blue, mid grey, dark blue or black. The batteries were kept underneath in a compartment with a removeable cover and switch on the side. Both types are quite common on Ebay, the earlier one is not so detailed though.

Hi, these are great models - I had a very lucky find a while ago, I found the rare Vickers Vigor tractor in a local charity shop for just £10. As I understand it, these cost the equivalent of £70 when new and many were destroyed by the makers of Thunderbirds who used them as the basis of many vehicles in the show. It had a couple of missing bits, but I passed it on to a Victory collector who I'm sure knows where to find you.

Yes they are very rare not sure why they go for so much. I have some photos of one I owned a few years ago which i rebuilt from a wreck. I sold it on Ebay for £750 and bought some new pvc windows for our lounge! I made a new grille, silencer, lamps and seat.

The yellow one is the rarest of the lot, very few were made and this one I saw on Ebay earlier this year sold for £3000!
