Australian Moldex

Australian Retail Price Lists from the Moldex period were printed on low quality paper, which has yellowed and become brittle over the years. The pictures show representative ones from the period 1961 to 1971. The retail price lists showed both the Australian made range and the UK range that was available in Australia. It was usually issued in May each year when the new UK catalogue arrived in Australia. There was little indication of origin, although Australian made or packaged models sometimes had an 'A' suffix added to the catalogue number.

1965 (above right)  Minic Motorways and Scalextric had been added to the list in 1962, extending the list to four pages. In 1963 all the drawings except the Sydney Suburban had been removed.
