Hi all,

This may not be the place to post this but...

Where in the world did I get this radio flyer wagon? It's 1/24/ 1/25, molded in a pale yellow styrene and in 7 pieces. I'll try to post pics later

Thanks in advance

If I remember correctly, a wagon was included in the Orange Blossom Special kit, and later offered in pale yellow-ish resin but I don't remember by whom.

Just about 7 pieces...

Thanks, John

Is that the tractor-pull type truck? IIRC that kit was molded in yellow... I probably got in a grab bag or something, because I've never owned it.

I'm missing two wheels and the rear axle but I can scratch build the axle and cast the two remaining wheels

I am fairly certain there was one in the AMT Meister Brau pulling tractor kit, molded in yellow. Same kit was molded in grey also I believe.

Correct......I have two of those kits....they have wagons in them.

CBS Sunday Morning had a cool segment on Radio Flyer Co......topp 100 companies to work for!!

Yep, the Orange Blossom Special was a puller- a '37 Chevy pickup, I think- that had three engines and was molded in gray. I got one at a KB Toys waaaaayyyyyyy back; the box was pretty trashed but there were still good parts in there. I think I paid maybe a buck for it.

Yeah I was thinking that the Orange Blossom Special was molded in orange styrine at first and the Meistrbrau tractor in yellow... either way this wagon is pretty sweet. I poured a mold tonight(first half of a 2 piece mold) for the front axle / tongue / handle and one wheel. I'll rework one copy of the front axle into a rear axle and cast an entire wagon kit in one larger mold... hopefully :D
