Is there no interest in the Spanish brands of diecast? Many out there!

Joal, Guisval, Paya, Mira, Pilen, Guiloy, Gisima, are brands that pop up?

Joal Euclid Dump Truck JOA242













Joal Michigan Loader JOA239


This one is supposed to be rare and worth a bunch. Don't know about that though.


 



Both are 1:50 scale.

On my holidays in Spain I believe I've seen Michigan loaders in shops, not sure therefore.

There were a few Pilen around in the early (prenet) days in Australia. I have to admit I only bought this one because it was a Chev.

Another Pilen, a bit smaller though:

This Toronado looks like the Isrealie, Cragstan car but with opening doors. Looks very nice.

Oh, I have quite a few spanish diecasts, let's see...


(Auto-)Pilen #313 De Tomaso Mangusta. Missing one engine cover. The casting is so similar to Dinky's version that parts can be interchanged and fit almost 100%





(Auto-)Pilen #503 - Renault 12 S





Joal #212 - Pegaso Container Truck





Joal #155 - Scania OmniCity city bus





Joal #? - Scania OmniLink city bus





Mira #4021 - Chrysler 150 GLS - missing bumpers. These should be interchangeable with Solido's model.





Nacoral Inter-Cars #100 - Mercedes 280 S. Unmelted wheels & tires! May not sound special, but this is the wheel/tire-combination that very often develops a chemical reaction causing the wheels to melt into an unshapely blob.





Nacoral Inter-Cars #121 - Volvo 144. This wheel/tire type does not have the same problems as on the Mercedes above. Nevertheless it's quite a rare diecast in good condition because it has other weaknesses: the front turn indicators are tiny colored plastic pieces and they always break/become lost. The taillights are of the same material and placed in small chromed holders... they too tend to come loose. The bumpers are made from very thin metal, ridged to allow a rubber strip to be placed like on the real car. Looks great, but they break very easily!





Pilen/Artec #371 - Mercedes 250





Pilen #? - Mercedes 250. Very similar to the one above, but with a few small differences.





Pilen #? - Mercedes 250. My third variant of this car. The casting is the same, and so is the problem: bonnets, boots and doors open or rather... they should! In reality they can only open a tiny bit before it starts to feel as if you're going to break something if you continue. Apart from that, I really like this deep red metallic version.





And finally:


Pilen/AHC #491 - Volvo 480 ES. This isn't really spanish, but dutch. Nevertheless it's a Pilen-diecast.





I have a few more with no photos and also a few that have been sold and the photos moved to a different drive.
