NEW OLD MODELS FOUND
The tag says it all. It's all about older models which I have discovered only recently.
This Volvo Amazon scale model has been produced in Japan by the company AHI. The model consist of a diecast body with a tinplate bottom-plate riveted to it. The car has free rolling axles with tires made of rubber. The scale model comes mounted on a black plastic base with a clear plastic cover. The car is fixed with a ribbon to the base.
I have seen the car so far only in this orange livery.
An excellent overview of other models by AHI offers this webpage : www.87thscale.info/ahi.htm
Here is a mint Volvo 760 by Siku and still packed in the blister. This is the first time I have seen this larger type of cardboard/blister package combo. Features of the car are opening front side doors, working suspension and an indicated metal sunroof. The item number for this Volvo 760 is 1065.
I have also noticed that the model is stated as 1:55 scale model. The approximate dimensions of the model are 84x31x25 mm and do match very closely this information.
These Siku models have always been listed as 1:64 scale models in my database. This will of course be corrected in the next release which will be available very soon.
