You can't tell the men from the boys by the size of their toys after all. The miniature car is one of the most popular and enduring toys, almost as old as the machines that inspired them. Some are veritable miracles of technology in miniature, with functioning headlamps and front-wheel drive; others are lovingly crafted to a fine level of detail, with real leather seats and handpainted finishes. Some rare older models are today literally worth their weight in gold, especially if the packaging is intact. Collectible Miniature Cars is a charming trip through the world of the toy car, featuring over five hundred photographs of cars, trucks, and utility vehicles, both vintage and modern, from all the leading toy car producers, such as Dinky, Marklin, Bing, Schuco and Meccano. The book is divided into themed chapters covering family cars, sport coupes, racing cars, and utility vehicles. Each photograph is accompanied by a brief yet informative text giving the key features of every toy, and the volume is completed by a buyer's guide. This attractively designed book is the perfect choice for all toy car collectors, and those who have never quite forgotten the joy of owning a brand-new, shiny miniature car, and imagining the hours of pleasure it will bring. * Over 500 items reproduced life-sized in color in each title* Features both rare and frequently found models* Includes bibliographies and useful addresses to find out more
