Ralstoy Wooden Army Tank #RAV11

This tank measures 4.5″ x 2.25″.  It is entirely wood except for thin nails used for axils and to attach the turret.  The tank is very simple in design, almost homemade looking.  Usually the bottom of the tank is marked Ralstoy, but this one has written in pencil “AM Dec 7th 1941”.  No one will ever know who wrote that or why.  I have in my head that after the news of Dec. 7th broke some little boy wrote this so he would remember when he used his tank to fight the bad guys.

From my private collection.

  1. Hello Derrick:

    I just got one of these in a set that is a Keystone Table and Tub set of 6 “boats” . As you say, it has Ralstoy stenciled on the underside in the hollow under the rollers.

    Only 3 of the proper boats were there in the box but another 4 keystone military ships were present and another 4-5 wooden ships of a smaller scale were also present, along with the US Mail plane.
