  • 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.

    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.)

      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!
