David Mincica vintage slotcars collection - DMI/Elmodan info

Inläggav slotcar7 26 apr 2010, 16:35

Hi guys, I'm a vintage slot car sets collector based in London, and i'm desperate to find some news (and pictures) about the danish brand DMI that, for what i know, in the 60s and the 70s produced the Elmodan track system. I guess it was in H0, but i've read it could be also in 1/32. Can you please help me in my research? i'd like even to buy, if possible..i've tried to contact a lot of people in many different countries but..no answer! So, please..

Cheers, david

A little info on Elmodan here.

It's an article from a swedish pop tech magazine, dating from march 1960.
In short the old article tells us that Elmodan indeed was 1/32, not H0.
The Elmodan ”career” spanned from the late 1950s to early-mid 1960s.
The cars were rather mechanically advanced even by today's standards.
A standard set contained pieces for a plastic track oval (22" x 38,5"), two
controllers and two VW Beetle cars running on 12-14V AC. Power source
could be any model railway AC transformer.

Good luck in finding a set!

Extra bonus here: Close-up of a period (1957-58) all-metal Elmodan car:

And I think your best bet in finding a set of this elusive Elmodan brand would be — Denmark.

Guys, you're unbelievable.. :o ..i'll bid on that magazine on ebay..i check almost every day on ebay uk, france, germany, italy, spain, belgium, netherlands, us, but so far every time i put in the search box the word "elmodan"..nothing at all..and now, finally :)
Of course i know that, in theory, the probabilities of finding something should be higher in Denmark, but every time i look on qxl, that's the danish ebay, for what i understand, always nothing..and the few times i tried to contact a danish slot car forum i later gave up, because swedish is already a difficult language to interpretate, but danish is absolutely impossible for me.. :-? i'll try again, but i'm a bit scared :( ..if someone good in danish can help me..i'd really appreciate it!

Just one last question, please: how did you get those pictures of the vw?

Thanks again to you all, david

Hi, thanks for the pictures, really interesting..

You know, the point is that i'm trying to build one of the biggest vintage slot car sets collection..I've already got more than 300 vintage sets (1937-1985) of about 45 different brands, and many vintage slots as well in all the scales, but to me has been easier to find some sets that usually are considered quite hard to get, like Tippco Reichsautobahn, National Toys Tris, Heras with Mercedes Bus, Playcraft Champion still sealed, Policar Ippodromo, Policar Mini, Marusan Red Cross Rolls-Royce, etc..rather than finding anything about Elmodan..some friends of mine, great collectors, didn't even know its existence..!

So, i'll carry on looking for..! And if any of you knows the existence of other brands quite unknown that made some sets..i'm here to listen!

Thanks, david

Hi David,

Nice to hear about your mission to build that slot car collection. You probably have more knowledge about different brands than most of us. But if we can help it would be fun. There are some guys on this forum with a lot of knowledge as well. It would help if you could tell which 45 different brands you have till now and if limit to anything else than slot track sets of any size between 1937-1985.

As far as I know Elmodan is the only Scandinavian brand and hopefully some of our danish friends who visit our forum could help you further.

By the way Jocke don't you have pictures of another Elmodan racer? I think you tried us in the guessing competition last year.

And Ravajack, I also regret missing out on the auction on Tradera some 5-6 years ago. It would have been nice to have that Elmodan set now. Unfortunately I have no idea who bought it but I think I remember it going to Denmark.

Now I have done some research and actually found some interesting links between Elmodan and LEGO. Yes it's true! The VW-bodies were actually made by LEGO. And some of those bodies could have been made in Norway. I give you the opportunity to search further here:
http://www.miniland.nl/Historie/vw%20groot%20eng.htm
http://www.miniland.nl/Historie/mecline/lego_vw%20beetle%20eng.htm

On that last page you can also find these pictures:

Hope this is of any help David. :thumb: Would be fun to see your collection some day. :beer:

that's why it's called "Legotillverkning" ;-) or in English "subcontracting"
