Indeed...!....and AFAIK it was used in a cordless angle-grinder for desert use, much beloved by the General Rommel troops....





We're creating myths here, don't we...? :-)

The very first day that Rommel arrived in the desert, he announced to his faithful troops - "Men - you will never go hungry, here with me. You can always eat the sand which is there."

(sandwiches there)

I was down at the National War Memorial (and museum) over the past weekend and was very surprised to come across this little number inside a display case alongside an Australian WWII soldier.

No motor in situ though it did have casting provision for a tether.

Cheers,
Rob

I'm loving the roadster Olmod, especially the matching dice on the cutoff. Looks like it was a model of a 33 or 34 Ford.

Cheers,

I recognise the white speed model with OS15.
If it's not the original from '57 it's a very nice replica by R.H. Same engine.

Dooling-Frog


I have this Frog cl car for sale. Did'nt build this one myself. Powered by a perfect working Mc Coy 60. I did polish the entire car, it came painted. I then found out that there is a very very tiny slit where the builder did go just a little too far in milling out the cavity clearance for the gear, probably the reason why he painted it. I did slide a MECA decal onto that. The slit is indeed very very small but can after all be detected. You can see it on the pictures. I do not have time and lust to paint the car again. Do have another one. I am asking 650 $ for it plus mailing cost, this is cheap for such a car, payment by Paypal.

Of all places to find some tether car discussion........
I used to be quite active on RCgroups with Radio control stuff but now I mess with Vintage Motorcycles and my brother and I still race full size sprint cars.

I was at a vintage motorcycle and car show this summer and one of the guys had a few vintage tether cars on display so it sparked my curiosity. then i saw how much the vintage cars were going for now ( man I could have cleaned up if I would have bought up vintage tether cars at the RC flea markets years ago) So I surfed around and found some guys who were making tether cars out of stamped metal BuddyL toy cars so I purchased a couple and bought some tires and wheels and the project sort of stalled due to some bikes I was working on. Well I pulled everything out of the cabinet last night and I think i am going to start working on one of them again. I have seen a few stamped metal cars that would make nice tether car conversions. I think I will also try to hammer out my own body once i get one of these stamped toy cars converted.

here is a picture of a BuddyL conversion http://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedi...r-car-77951696
