Lesney cement mixer




When Lesney were looking for the next vehicle to model there was a building site just down the road and someone had noticed they were using a cement mixer so at lunchtime they took a tape measure up to the site and measured up their mixer.
The mixer was 90mm (3.5 inches) long and was first produced in 1947/8 at approximately the same time as the road roller. The colours were usually green with orange wheels but like the road roller it was released in a number of different colours simply because of the limited paint supply meant that they had to use whatever colour paint was available at the time.
As a toy the choice of a cement mixer would probably not exite too many children so it is surprising to find that although the mixer and the roller were in production for the same amount of time and sold for the same price it is the mixer that is the most common of the two.
The mixer was deleted in 1950 and a scaled down version of it was made as the number 2a cement mixer in the Matchbox 1-75 series in 1953.
