I thought i would put a rare ho scale set on. The set was the 1st set made by Tomy of Japan. The box top has 2 very weird looking kids racing.
The cars are Nissan Cedrics. The grills & bumpers are made of metal. The motor is a huge can type motor with a worm gear. The track is very unusual in that the figure 8 folds in half & is already assembled. The set also has 2 grandstands & 2 battery powered controllers. Hope you enjoy this rare set,Bernard

Wow, now that's a strange one Bernard! Wonder how they got it to fold right in the middle of the crossover?

I've seen that kind of art on other Japanese boxes... maybe they're trying not to have too typically "japanese looking" kids so they can do export sales, or maybe ???

Hi,

I just deleted Bernard's duplicate post on this same set... so you can post here!

This is an amazing set, surely it deserves some posts...

And thanks to our eagle-eyed SF readers, especially that Chapman chap.

That is a really cool set and thank you Bernard for sharing it. You really do have a wonderful collection!

The motor looks like a 1/32nd one which makes you wonder how they managed to stuff it into an HO car.

The fold away idea is something that shoudl have been explored further. I've been thinking of micro cars on an A4 size track as another portable type venture. With a motor from one of the new type radio control planes which is only around 3volts and incredibly small, you could have a great little track.
