Tommy Doo - Machine Gunner

Click on any photo to see a larger version...


This model is the Tommy Doo Machine Gunner in olive green. This is the version with wheels.

The model is a one-piece, slush cast lead, metal body, 125mm in length, 30mm wide, and 36mm high (including wheels). It has been molded with all features cast into the body casting (machine gun, ground, and gunner). The whole casting is painted olive green with the gunner's hands and face in fleshy pink, gunner's belt and boots in dark brown, and the ground in a mid green.

There is no base plate as such as this is a slush cast toy with no manufacturer's marks.

The wheels comprise lead cast hubs, approximately 10mm in diameter, on steel crimped axles. Each has a thick rubber tyre, the tyres being 20mm in diameter.

I believe this item was issued in the 1940s. See this page for information on Tommy Doo.
