My father used to own an Austin Mini. He had a small collection of Mini scale models which included the two color variants of the Tomica No. F8 BLMC Mini Cooper S (Mk-III) shown here. These two were made in 1979.
The base and the body are metal; the headlights and front grill are made of plastic (the silver paint has rubbed off to show the beige plastic). The “F” in “F8” stands for “foreign” (to the Japanese). I started to clean them with isopropyl alcohol but I stopped when I inadvertently removed some of the paint on the Union Jack.
Their bottoms show that they were made in Japan with a scale of 1/50.
Only one of the boxes remains. It’s too bad the price on the sticker has faded.
