#901 TINTOYS/ TIN'S TOYS - KARINA, BMW 2800, FAIRLADY, PORSCHE and OTHERS (Around 1983)




Here are several other cars made by Tintoys and Tin´s Toys that I have bought in the last year or so. They are very difficult to find, so I am always happy to find one of these brands. It is almost the only budget line that I collect.




Let´s start with the Tintoys, which are previous to Tin´s Toys and labelled with W.T. on the base. None of these three cars are marked with carmaker or model in the base, so I indicate the name in brackets. The Mercedes C111 is not in its best shape, but the paint still resists well. Or at least better than the paint in other brands.


W.T. 201 (KARINA 1700)




W.T. 205 (PININFARINA FIAT-ABARTH 2000)





W.T. 507 (MERCEDES C111)



And now the Tin´s Toys, labelled with T on the base and also the carmaker or the model. If the name had to be completed by me, I put my addition in brackets. The Fairlady is exceptional because it has a chromed based.

T238 B.M.W. 2800
T239 FAIRLADY Z432 (260Z)
T344 KARINA (1700)
T347 PORSCHE (910)





Note that the Karina is presented twice, as Tintoys and also as Tin´s Toys. They have exactly the same color, but different wheels. You may not get confused by the wheels, since Tintoys use both types of wheels, and even other types not represented in this entry. Sometimes the colour may change, as seen in previous entries, see for example #635
