AeroMax is cool. Bet it takes some space.

Schuco Jr to be exact. I bought it in toy store in California in the early 2000s for under $20.00. Perhaps Action City is an off lable for the same product?

Those Matchbox Ford pickups look pretty good and I'll have to add one to my collection at some point. The Spark Transit rally support van is very cool. I saw on on ebay (for the first time) recently, it went for north of $100 so I had to drop out of the bidding. Is it in current production? It seems that other Transits by Spark are much more common than this Ford Motorsports version. Also, that is a great background, your creation?

Cool trucks and Vans, like the one with working headlights :) I've got the Econoline in the 1:1 photo, it's made by PremiumX like the F-100 Pickup. I need to get the Transit Van some day in my collection.

Mine was about the same price, it was bought in a toy store in Europe by one of the members here. Did not know that Schuco was involved.

Spark transit van is a few years old.

Yes, I made the background.

European Ford Trucks from IXO

Image
500E Thames and Ford/Simca Cargo by IXO by IFHP97, on Flickr

I posted this photo on IXO's Facebook page with the following note:

I really like the IXO-made truck series. Since I only collect Fords, I only have two (Ford/Simca Cargo and Ford Thames). Here they are with my suggestion for a third European Ford truck model -- the 1954-61 F-K 4500 (G-700 in some export markets). If you are careful, you could use the same casting to make a fourth model --Thames NC Trader/Ford K-600 as they used the same body as the F-K 4500. Any plans?

IXO posted a pretty positive response which leads me to think that a F-K 4500 is in the works.

How I wish IXO would do a C Type. Think of all the possibility's!
Both of your trucks would be welcome here.

Yes, a range of C-Series trucks from IXO would be great. For one thing, I need a fire truck in my collection.

Nice Ovals over here. I'm pondering a classic Transit myself. Does anyone have the complete Supervan series?

Great trucks!
I too have one of those 1:43 transporters, but mine has a MAN cab. Bought it years ago at the swapmeet, haven't seen any since. I think mine's in a Schuco box.

2006-08 Ford LCF by Eligor

Image

I didn't know Eligor made die-cast vehicles this nice. The working tilt-cab supports my theory that Ford used this model as a promotional piece back in 2006. The LCF was a disaster for Ford. My understanding is that only a few thousand were sold in 2006-08.

Image

Image

I was a bit worried about the actual scale of this truck when I bought it. In this comparison with other 1:43 trucks it looks perfect. The box does not give any scale, but it is stamped 1:43 on the truck itself.

Not aware that Eligor made models in any scale other than 1:43rd. They were made on behalf of the Eligor brand by LBS. LBS made some interesting Berliet lorry models back in the 1980’s and today part of their output is Racing Car transporters.

Schuco is just one brand name owned by the massive Simba-Dickie Toy Group:

http://www.simba-dickie-group.de/en/the ... ites.shtml

When on the above link scroll down to find other brands owned by them - guaranteed you will be surprised! :)

The use of the Schuco brand name with the addition of Junior was to give an era of nostalgia to the great name from another generation to the present one with the idea to promote sales.

In any case whatever brand the car transporters appeared under the model was actually made by Hongwell.

GAZ Model AA Bus by Hongwell

Image
GAZ Model AA Bus by Hongwell by IFHP97, on Flickr

Nicely detailed, but probably undersized for a 1:43 scale bus. I have long looked at these GAZ AA trucks on e-bay and wondered if they were accurately scaled or not. I bought this bus from an e-bay seller in Latvia who said the manufacture was IXO. I trust IXO to be good about the scale of their trucks so I ordered it. But it turns out to be Hongwell, not IXO and the bus is about the size of a Transit van. The standard Model AA chassis was 131.5 inches. I don't know, maybe GAZ made a shorter version. Here is a comparison photo with the Ford/Simca Cargo by IXO.

18-passenger bus (including driver). The small number of seats makes the relative shortness of this bus more plausible

In the end I would probably be reluctant to buy any more GAZ AAs by Hongwell because of the scale question. It would be wonderful if IXO would add some Model AA trucks to their truck series.

Two 2015 Ford truck releases from the the French part work company Hachette. (built by Sonic in Bangladesh)

Circa 1947 Ford F 798 T fire truck (a French truck). This is the first 1:43 scale model that I've ever seen that was made in Bangladesh. Too bad about the cock-eyed headlights, I don't know if they can be fixed. The model needs some more paint too -- maybe a black bumper, silver mirrors and a blue Ford oval.
