  • Renwal 55 Ford Convertible

    Renwal was very well known for their plastic cars, so when I found this I was very much surprised. Clearly it won't win beauty pageants today, the technology has come so very far since this was made in the middle 1950s.

    The image file limits have been reset. We have over-limit warnings for the past 3 months and I've had to lower the image file limits. Upper limits now are 100,000 when we have some images that exceed 5,000,000. I know I've mentioned many times before, but it is very important to downsize images - doesn't matter if they are hosted elsewhere or here. I've set the pixels for no more than 1000 across the longest side, so if you resize to that all should be well. (The new limits are larger than what I typically use, and my images turn out just fine, so I know it shouldn't be a problem)

    Thank you for your understanding.

    Very interesting!

    Certain Renwal castings--metal and plastic--were sold as loads for operating railway cars by the A.C Gilbert company in the late '40s, '50s and early '60s. They are in high demand among American Flyer S gauge collectors.

    But when I see the name "Renwall", I think of the 1/4 scale "Visible V-8" model kit from my childhood. (Yup, still got it.)
    Bert sez...
    "Wanna sell more?
    MAKE IT 1/64!!!"

      Renwal--same company originally responsible for the clear scale models of people and animals with visible internal organs--correct?

      A little too short, while being too narrow at the same time--but I kinda like it!
