Diecast Models - TOOTSIETOYS
See HOME for more
I have always admired the larger Tootsietoy range of castings. These are around 5 to 6 inches long. They are very nice castings albeit basic with no bases. Wheels too are black, basic and often in poor condition. These models lend themselves to repainting and updating to resemble real cars of the era. I have had a go at doing some of these without bothering to keep them original but using the castings to show their style.
repainted in three tone colours. Wheels changed to something more substantial and painted white
A Kaiser. Model in poor condition. Repainted in three tone colours and wheels altered by adding a homemade base.
Not sure what vehicle this is meant to be but it is quite decor. Again repainted in three tone colours and wheels repainted to uplift the model.
A Chrysler. Repainted in three tone colours and different wheels added too make it look more real.
Repainted in two tone and wheels painted to be more interesting .
