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!

Appologies accepted RM.  I will cover my legs, but in that picture I wanted to look a young kid of course........(I rememberit it was very warm)


We lived in that (rental)house from 1956 till 1965. I got the idea of adressing the people who live there now, explain that we once lived there, and to my surpirse we were invited.


Told my mum and dad we would go for a ride. We stopped at our old house, walked arround, and at the appointed time I rang the doorbell. You should have seen my dad's eyes. Only then they realized it was a set up. I took out my Tudor Rose truck, and we had a nice time! My dad once took that picture in 1957, and now he took it again!

Re: Tudor Rose England 6 years, 3 months ago #87

Look at post #81. Same truck but the colors are swapped around.

Re: Tudor Rose England 6 years, 3 months ago #88

Platinum Boarder
I don't have this in my collection, so do not have close up pictures of this truck.

Thanks so much guys. Andy, of course I have close up pictures, but I suppose you don't want to a see my legs........RM, of course it is in my collection, as the is the only TR I have. I did not want to show them right away of course, build up the tension first. A lot of things happened to my truck in between the first and the last picture. Please compare VERY closely with the same truck in other colours......

It is great to see this, the light has discoloured it but it is still in very good condition. One thing which I noticed with Tudor Rose toys like this , is the silver plastic becomes very brittle more than the other colours , you have to be careful when taking them apart to wash especially the lugs which hold the axles in they tend to break off very easily.
