Diecast Toys - Made in Hungary: Hobby-Cars

One of the most interesting part of the Hungarian diecasts at the 80's was the Hobby-Cars Modell "Superfast" diecast cars as well. These toys was the one largest domestic toy seller - "TRIAL Sport, Instrument and Toy Distributor Co." own brand (In hungarian - TRIÁL Sport-, Hangszer- és Játékáru Nagykereskedelmi Vállalat). Only 21 TRIAL toyshops available  at Budapest in 1985.

Unfortunately these goods wasn't produced at a large number and it's only available at the bigger toyshops. All of the Hobby-Cars Modell "Superfast" diecasts made by "PEMU Pest county Plastic-, Toyparts- and Mass production Factory" at Solymar plant  (In Hungarian - PEMÜ Pest megyei Műanyag-, Játékáru- és Tömegcikkipari Vállalat). The PEMU doesn't produce a diecasts only the TRIAL, they produce a diecasts part for a lot of other diecast factory (Metchy, Metalcar, Metal Playmobil) as well. That's the reason why you can see almost a lot of same diecast parts in a different models (for example wheels, windshields).

  • Datsun 126X Matchbox
  • BMW Turbo Majorette
  • Lamborghini Diablo Corgi

  • Planet scout Matchbox
