The original Nautilus was not Disney; the original was a description from Jules Verne's pen.

Yes,Yes, I should have said "original produced".  This is brought up any time anybody says Nautilus and Disney in the same sentence.  Wink

Everyone on this forum probably knows this, though Disney might want people to believe otherwise.

I didn't know they made model car kits in such small scales; some of these are smaller than HotWheels cars.

These are a mini-kit range of simple kits for kids, and are usually 1/box scale. Such tiny oddball items have cropped up in kit catalogues since the 1950s, which is probably when this range began, as novelties.

Also, some civilian cars have been made to this scale to match gaming ranges, such as the metal range of Rolls-Royce and Model T from Reviresco, or military models such as some cars by Eastern European or Ukrainian manufacturers, which are often models which may have been used as staff cars during the Second World War.
