Beautiful car and fantastic work.
Neat car and great work!
Thanks Newfld. Yes, the doors, trunks and headlights open on the larger 1/18 model. Some pics here https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/263671-kyosho-lamborghini-countach-lp400-protot
Looks like a Mattel Futuristic Mobilgas tin friction race car from the 1950s.
Can you tell us more about the models? What scale? What brand? Thanks!
Looks like an Edicola 1/43
Could be 1/43 Edicola model
Probably Hot Wheels?
I think what you have is a Thimble Drome Special tether car, without the engine installed. The push cars don't have eye-hooks for the tether wire. Probably 1947.
Wow, what a find! It's a tether car, no doubt about it, and it's quite valuable.
Is that a minichamps? nice!
It looks like a 1930's Wyandotte Stake Bed Truck. It looks to be in original condition, and it's fairly valuable, too. Nice find.
That grill design looks familiar...I just can't quite put my finger on it...
Love it! Get yourself a nice set of axles and tires for this, and put it on your shelf! Here's one on ebay: BARCLAY BV #61 LIGHT BLUE 2 DOOR SEDAN, SLUSH LEAD, LATE 30'S http://www.ebay.com/itm/VIN...
Of course they made toy cars earlier than the 1950's. The oldest toy car in my personal collection is from the mid-1920's. But, you would not expect to see a model of 1950's style car that was made in...
I don't know anything about this particular toy, but based on the automotive styling of the model, I would guess it represents a car from the 1950 or newer. If that was a toy made in the 1920's, it wo...
It's a Porcher Classic Model K70, made in the early 1970s and maybe up until the 1990s. Search on Google, and you can find tonnes of information and parts for these.
The large racer looks like a Woodette Tornado Racer manufactured by Winzeler Mfg & Tool Co. and made in Chicago, IL. It's from the 1940's and runs from compressed air.
That's a Franklin Mint 1:24 Bently. It listed at $135 new. See a review of the model here: http://tinyurl.com/8c9p483
Here's one like your yellow one. http://tinyurl.com/98chzk5
If it has the trailer hitch that goes with your bat-boat, then its probably '67 to '72. Check out this site for more info: http://www.batmobile.free.fr/English/Intro.htm
I have one of these, but it's not nearly as old as yours. I think the red bat symbols on the wheels will help you to date it - it's one of the more rare ones. Nice!
The black car is from some kind of wind-up speedway racetrack toy. These date back as far as the 1920s but are still made today as reproductions. Here's an old one: http://toysoftimespast.com/produc...
Not exactly the same, but similar to this: http://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/southport/antiques-collectables/bugatti-car-model/354384639
he oldest one I have is a 1959 O.S. Pet .099 with the throttle for RC. It's a pretty little engine. I also have a late 1960s rudder-only escapement model (Carl Goldberg Jr Falcon for 0.049) that was g...
I love these old engines. RC flying models are another hobby of mine. I have a few engines (not as nice as yours), I keep them in my display case right along with all the model cars! To me, these old ...
In 1967, the Corvette did not yet have that body shape. But, nice model!
I got the same one!
Wow, that's perfect!
Great model of a gorgeous car. I have a couple of 1/18 Minichamps, and X1/9 and a Williams-Renault FW19 (Jacques Villeneuve). They make fantastic models.
All the decals appear to be intact, I would just leave it as is. The only thing I might do, is find a replacement head for the driver.
Great photographs. That slot car looks like it's enjoyed many hours of high speed fun!
Awesome ride! I did the same years ago with a '74 Fiat X1/9. I got the real thing first, the model later. Have fun in that thing!
Dr_Rambow definitely beat me to it! I was just trying to add a little more information. What a pretty little plane! Check out the real thing flying here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JnZWD6H_rfc
Very neat model. It's not actually a P-38, but a "Crusader", a small passenger aircraft from the early 1930's. It's design pre-dates the P-38. You can read more about it here: http://www.rareplanes.co...
That's really great work.
wow that's beautiful.
That a model of the English Electric Lightning, the highest performing aircraft in it's day. It had two afterburning engines, placed one above the other, rather than side-by-side like most twin engine...
Nice model, I have seen these go in the $100 to $200 range, maybe $300 in mint condition. These were sold at the souvenir stands at the Speedway during races. Very nice piece of indy racing history.
That's a Thimble Drome tether car, quite valuable. Powered by a small model airplane engine, you would connect it to a metal wire and to a post. They go VERY fast around in a circle. Very nice model!
See all 192
