Re: Toy identification request
These will be all plastic models originating in Hong Kong. They are not Matchbox Super Kings but the injection moulds appear to have been made from tooling produced by scaling down Hornby Minic warship production models. I still have some of the battleships in a spares box but the Albion-class carrier was converted to HMS Unicorn in the early 1980s!
A coworker came across a couple of toy battleships that I can't identify. One is an Iowa (with the captain looking the wrong way), the other is Bismarck. They're between 1200-1800 scale.
I found a picture online of both as part of a Matchbox Sea Kings lot, but they don't have the typical Matchbox markings on the bottom.
Appreciate any help folks can give!
