  • Muovo Finland Model Directory

    From Finland. Nicely made plastic 1/60 and 1/87 models similar to F&F models.

    "Muovo was used for naming all types of Candy Bag Models.

    One piece plastic body with solid windows and fair details of front and rear hood, door seams and rear oval window. No bumpers molded in the body and no chassis. Small plastic wheels on metal axles secure to the body. Number 8 inside the roof and this VW was given away in a bag of candy by the sweets producer Chymos together with 7 other makes: Austin, DKW, MB, Opel, Porsche, Saab and Studebaker.

    Muovo made those plastic cars for Chymos, which was a Finnish candy maker. At the time Chymos sold candy bags which included one car in paper bag. There were many different models in 1:64 scale, Edsel was one of them. I don't know for sure if these 1:43 cars were also found in candy bags.

    Nowadays Muovo cars are mostly found in swap meets with high price.

    They are very rare in Finland and even more so anywhere else.

    The image file limits have been reset. Upper limits now are 100,000 when we have some images that exceed 5,000,000. 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 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.

    Learned that early castings had the company logo on the base.
