Just back from a vacation in Denmark - so naturally here are some old Teknos -pics
For my 1/43 diecast collector-friends, here are some old toys I found in Denmark.

The most precious - from my Danish "father" (I lived with his wife and him during college). It was his eldest son's toy VW van PFAFF from the early 1960s. A friend, Keld, in DK found tires for it!

Another color for my Alfa Romeo collection - 2600 by Solido

Might be closer to 1/50 scale but a good backdrop for Teknos. Copenhagen trolley from the 1950s, all wood, made by Hanse.

A real stunner, 1948 Ford Taxi by Tekno, made for US market. I could not find one that was not a repaint or that jhad zinkpest, so I had to get it at the Copenhagen toy flea market (3 times a year).

Saab 96 from Tekno, early version 1961. Thanks, Keld!

Lion Car Holland reissue (in yellow window box), DAF ANWB (Dutch AA or AAA)

Same reissue, DAF 46

Also by Lion, bit not related to Lion Car Holland. Lion Denmark! A German Ford FK 1000, I have 2 others but this is the first that I saw with the headlights still in place! Yes!

Solido Alfa Romeo again! To start my 2600 rainbow by Solido. A new color for me! Thanks, Mick!
