  1. Tracks & Scenery
    Wasn't sure if I should start this post here or do separate posts in the 1/43rd and 1/32nd scale forums but settled for here as the track is the one constant. My idea is to do something that doesn't appear to happen much, at least on the forum, and that is to posts some videos of the track with...

    Dear all, I hope you don't mind me setting up this account to ask for help, as I knew this would be where the experts would be! We recently unearthed a cache of vintage toys from the 1950's from our grandma's attic. While most are in mint condition with boxes, our slot car set unfortunately...

    Does anyone have advice on rewinding Formula Junior motors? I got a few of these motors in a scrapyard joblot a few years back, I've managed to get three of them running but I'm left with one that is completely dead and one that will only work after a manual spin of the wheels. After poking...

    Here are 2 sets ,1 in 1/32nd scale ,and 1 in 1/24th scale. These sets came with controllers ,transformer,cars and tools etc but no track. The track could be bought in its own set that contained none of the above. The 1/24th set is not a rare set . It contains a Ferrari 156 and a Porsche 804. But...

    Here is a very unusual and very rare Lionel set # 66 we have in the museum. The cardboard box the set comes in becomes the platform ,( called Scene -O-Rama ) for the Pacesetter and the transformer and track. There are even cutouts for the 2 controllers as shown in the photo. The cars are the...

    Here is a "mystery" that has not been addressed. The differences between the 2 Ok Kader Coopers 1/30th scale. The most noticeable difference between the 2 Coopers is the underside. One has a riveted white bottom with 2 exhaust pipes and the other more common one does not.But there are quite a...

    Here is a 1961 Marx set with the brass rails and early controls. This was the 1st train slot car set made in the world . The 2 cars have brass gears and a blade guide not a pin. But Marx in 1938-39 did make a race car- train set all electric and tinplate. So they made 2 car train sets before...

    Here is a HO Marx Corvette. Most people think 1962 was the 1st year of Marx HO cars but it was not. This car was made in 1961. The difference is the brass gear and the Blade guide not a pin guide. These 1961 slot cars with the blade guide are rare. Also early HO 1961 Marx trak had brass rails...

    The 1st Strombecker slot car go karts I think were made in late 1961 and were black & red. The guide on these had a rear pin . The body itself was shorter on the rear than the 1962 model. They also had a gear on either side of the rear axle, hubcaps, different wheels and tires than the later...

    We just got at the Houston slot car museum a very rare close to MIB PlastiMarx set from Mexico. It contains a Maserati Birdcage and a Ferrari with steering and lights. The Mexican cars were different colors than the US made ones ( usually more colorful ) and they had a decal with the car #...

    Here are 2 rare trophies awarded Japanese slot car racers in the 1960s. I added cars that might have been the winners to show scale. The 1st is a very rare trophy with ribbon in a very nice box by Marusan. It says "Award" at the top and Marusan below. I put a 1/32nd scale Marusan Toyopet Crown...

    Here is a set I got recently. It is a Troby set from France made in 1966. It is called 1,000 Miles . I believe this was the 1st set they made. It has 2 1/32nd scale Lotus 18s in it. It uses the same controllers as the HO set they made. While not in mint shape the set does not come up very often...
