Help in identifying the find

Recommended Posts

Greetings to the community here,
I came to this forum to ask for help:

While cleaning out the attic of an old house, I found a plastic bag with these two cars. Unfortunately, the original owner has already died and I could not find any other information (boxes, manuals,...) about both cars anywhere in the house.

Can anyone help me with what I actually found?

I will be very grateful for any help.

That was super fast. Many thanks for the identification.

Now I have a base that I can lean on when thinking about whether to sell the models or try to finish them or just clean and preserve them as a memento.

Nice! Looks like with a light dusting and clean up they will be very presentable

These two cars are the least of my worries. There will be much more work with the 70 Matchboxes and a hundred other toy cars (Corgi, Schuco,...) which were in the box right next to it.

I hope so. My wife doesn't ,,fully understand" my new hobby yet, but it just requires a little time and a few completed household works. :D

There's no such thing as "completed household works".   Your wife will just advance them to phase II, III, IV etc.....

:D
