Variation in Colours over the years: Deep Red to Red and later Orange and Yellow

A very commen colour is the "Pink-version" or also often named as "Faded Red"

A quick check underneath - usually revals the original colour! Ref. Red/Orange/Yellow is "tricky"

(NB! Number in Tom's Private Collection - New Catalog 2012 - No factory number on the toy)

NB! This first edition is "Heavy Duty" made

First versions: B-1 330 gr. and B-2 315 gr. The later versions lighter vinyl: B-3 B-4 B-5 only 238 gr.

These first models where "softer" and "heavy-ier" than later editions,

the factory-production tried and experimented

with different material mixture in the early 1950-ies before

the finally models "The vinyl-models" came in the 1960 and 1970-ties!

They also had som "Stability-problems" in the first years - too soft mixture resultet in deforming og the models, so a stronger mixture and added reinforcement underneath solved the problems!

So "Real Collectors"

always check the underneath for changes and variations in mould and markings etc.
