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!

I have just got a couple of different colour MK2 Zepyhr's , I thought I had shown my others on this topic but they must be on another plastic topic. they are from the Replicar series I know of the Jaguar Mk1 in this series although I do not have one. The models have a tin base & are friction drive, they suffer from glue marks where the roofs & windscreens were fitted, each model came with a suitcase in the boot. The boxes were printed for the correct model, they had a hole in the side so as the colour of could be seen & the had the car specifications on them which is a great idea as it gave the child a description of the engine size etc. The convertable was a four door body as with the Matchbox convertable.

It always pays to study models, I nearly over looked this Cortina , as I thought it was the battery Z Cars  one with cable taken off, closer look & I saw it had a very nice detailed tinplate interior & the base was correctly changed to house a friction motor & the bright work is not chrome plated, my guesses are it is an end of line version... Rollerman?

That looks in fantastic condition. Are you able to make a wind screen for it?

Re: Lincoln International toys 2 years, 3 months ago #39

Platinum Boarder
Not too sure , I can replace the screen but the surround wilt be hard

Have you heard of Bare Metal Foil? There is also ducting aluminum tape used in the Furnace business to seal duct work at the joints. Any hardware store will have that but I don't know where you would get Bare Metal Foil other than a hobby shop. The duct foil is really, really, really stick so if you use that be very, very, very careful as once stuck you can't get it off easy. It also leave very sticky glue if you do get it off.

I missed this post probably while I could not get on the forum.

Anyway, you are right Andy about the Ford Cortina being an end of line item and the use of tinplate interior is cheaper to have printed than muck about having a whole plastic interior made.

The Jaguar is a fabulous model really well captured but as you have found the windscreen is an easily lost item. This model was very popular with Lincoln having marketed it in several versions and qith several box designs. Two very hard versions to find are the 'Performance Thrust' and 'Power Thrust' friction motor versions. These two being the same but with different names for the motor.

Rollerman.

Thanks for expertise in the knowledge of these plastic toys, Rollerman, I am now planning a replacement screen.
