Märklin (yes the one from the trains) made a range of 1 / 43 cars as well ; I have only gat this Porsche 911 T.


It is a nice model , you can remove the Targa roof and a nice touch it has license plates .

Nothing wrong with that Porsche!
The wheels are spot on too.
BTW: nice diorama!

Nice looking model, do the windows move up and down ?


I only have the one Marklin, Mercedes No.61

Nice Mercedes ; They made Henschell and Krupp trucks and I think Borgward and VW cars too.


 


Yes, you can move the windows of the Porsche.

I think Karls knows a lot about the Märklin range (I faintly recall several postings by him about them)


Meanwhile I can also contribute with a (partial) list of models made by them. It's in danish, but it should still be possible for all to get something out of it.


"udgivet" means "issued", the other danish words are mostly colors: sort = black, sølv = silver, hvid = white, gul = yellow, grøn = green, okker = ochre, blå = blue, lyse = light, mørke = dark, rød = red, græs = grass, lastvogn = truck, meget gammel = very old, genudgivelse = reissue, fersken = peach, totone = two-tone, enfarvet = single color, grå = grey.


The Porsche shown in this thread is #1800 and part of the famous so-called "RAKS-range" (all the 1800-numbers), this range was issued between 1968 and 1972. These cars all have lots of opening features, often EVERYTHING opens, even surpassing the Corgi and Dinky of the time.


The other ranges are older (single-digit range is pre-war, 8000-range is 1950's and early 60s) and do not have opening parts, some do not even have windows. Sometimes a catalogue number is followed by another number in brackets, these are re-issue numbers, or - in some cases - simply a result of Märklin's numbering system changing.


Notice the Hitler Staff Car (#10) - I don't have an issue date for this, but looking at the "neighbors", it must have been pre-war! For obvious reasons this model was not re-issued after the war.


The 1800-range models can sometimes be found at very reasonable prices (less than equivalent Corgi/Dinky of the era) and in good condition, while the older ones are difficult, in many cases bordering on impossible to find, let alone in good condition. A very old and mint/boxed model would cost roughly the same as a private jet

Greetings back from Denmark Back in the 70s, I often went on shopping trips to Flensburg with my family. I usually bought Siku models there, in either Hertie or Karstadt malls. One of them I still have, a Hanomag-Henschel Aral tanker. Another favorite I bought there was a Mercedes-Benz 406D Binz ambulance. Sadly it didn't survive the test of time, but I've recently bought a replacement. Wonderful model with FIVE opening doors and a removable stretcher.


I'm kinda surprised you've found "many good toys" for your collection here in Denmark - the glory days are long gone (Tekno/Vilmer etc.), but of course if you visit a fair/market, you can sometimes still find Tekno there.


Oh, and sorry to Blackstone or going off topic. I hope the list in the previous post makes up for it

Great list. I have a Märklin VW Bulli to restore.

Excellent list, thank you


Here is my only, the 1803 Ford OSI 20M TS.
Opening doors and hood (bonnet). Working suspension. Jewelled lights.
Sadly, mine suffers from "melting" hubs as easily seen in last photo.
