As you said "crude". The angle of the pic is showing the crude seam between the upper and lower parts of the tank

Picked up some Tekno to add to the collection. I love vintage Tekno but don't have many due to their price tags. These came at a relatively bearable price


No. 434 Volvo Shell Tanker and No. 445 Scania Vabis Fire  Truck  


A few nicks and scratches but I love them!!!

I love to see old Teknos.  The Shell tanker is the older version (metal headlights)...

I really like Lone Star Roadmaster Impys. I have quite a few and a couple Flyers as well. At a toy collectors show this past weekend I picked up a larger scale (1/50) Roadmaster. This is my one and only Roadmaster, Dodge Dart Phoenix. Compete but with nicks and scratches and finishing on bumpers has worn










Last Edit: 3 years, 9 months ago by Tick.

Lovely Dodge Dart on catalogue number 1475 and with the White hard plastic tyres putting it into the 1965-66 production period.


Rollerman.

Quite a nice model, and good condition. The only diecast maker to make this real car as far as I know.

A few new models to share.....


posted in another thread but though to add a few more here of my recently purchased Gama Mini Mod No. 9601 Porsche Carrera










And this Budgie No 242 Euclid Tipper.


Really happy to have this one, not so happy how much I paid (impulse buy). but in great condition and original except the hinge pin for the tipper has been replaced with a cut down nail.

My first CIJ.


Somua BP Tanker. Pretty sure I over paid on this too but I am impulsive at times. I don't know much about this French maker but I am under the impression this model would be from the 60's era. I am aware this model was "re-issued" but not sure when.


Any one familiar with this CIJ and know if this one is an original or re-issue?

Norev reissued it and called it a 1955.  Will look it up in Ed Force's book and see.


I would hope no one took the reissue and distressed it, so I assume it is 'real'.  All the Norevs went to collectors who could not afford/find the original, I assume. I hope that Norev marked them saomehow - but I have never sween a CIJ Norev in person.

I have seen repro boxes on epay, if you are into that sort of thing...
