"The Dome Zero was the inspiration behind the Transformers Classics series figure of Transformers Generation 1 character Hot Rod. It was made into a toy in 2006, labeled with the character's alternate name Rodimus due to trademark issues with "Hot Rod". A silver Zero also features as a special prize car in the Xbox game SEGA GT 2002 and drivable from the start of SEGA GT Online. It also makes an appearance in Gran Turismo 4 as a prize for getting all gold in the International A license. The DOME-ZERO CONCEPT ’78 is also won as a prize for completing the Supercar Nostalgia Cup in Gran Turismo 5 for PlayStation 3, and the car is carried over into Gran Turismo 6. The car has also appeared in an episode of Yatterman, an anime. A model resembling the car appeared in Season 2, Episode 3 of Danger 5." from wiki.

[Adopts jfs voice mode]All that stuff is too modern for me to understand - in my day we had conkers on the end of strings.[Reverts to dsl mode]. I came across that blurb in a failed search for a 1970s diecast of the Dome - I was convinced someone like Politoys (or Mebetoys or Pilen or whoever) made one at the time which I remember strongly really really wanting but never got. Couldn't find any trace now, but am sure it existed - maybe with an invented name??

1) I do not, nor did I ever, sound like a Scotsman.

2) Conkers schmonkers. Hornby Dublo train set, Meccano (never quite made set #10 which was over £50 in the 1950s), then radio kits and finally beer, cars, boats and girls.

...then IMCDb.

We in Germany had something similar to Meccano, it was also made of wood, but it had colored wood screws and white rubber wheels.
Obviously not Fischer-Technik, anyone remember the name?

Meccano was made of steel, not wood, with brass nuts and bolts. The struts were painted green and the flat plates were red.

I didn't bother with Meccano. I stuck with Lego.

Matador?? I had a set when I was a kid as a Xmas present - I don't think it was sold here, but my dad had a trip to Germany to see car factories in early 1960s so I guess it came back with him and was played with for many years.

i had both Meccano and Lego

i once build ( well, tried to ) a bridge to put across the kitchen sink so i could play with my little cars and pretend the sink was a lake or river... :)

one of my friends had a similar one but made of plastic with ' multi-directional ' blue plastic 'bolts'

No, not Matador. It was something more flimsy.

Lego may have existed, but was not sold here when I was a kid. I also had one of these:-

Strings !? Well la-di-daa ! In my days, we could only dream about owning strings ! We used to fashion them out of fallen tree stems, so we had to wait for the autumn to stockpile our leafs, and that might be as well, because we had to work all day for the rest of the year, what with the intensive dung farming and the wolf attacks and the like. The youth of today has it easy, I tell you !

Actually, Dome helped financing the Zero by licensing the design and the brand to scale model manufacturers like Tomica (die-cast) and Fujimi (plastic kit).

And it's 1978, not 1975.

^ getting close. My Matador set was all wood, including the dowels and plugs and other bits which joined things together. None of this modern plastic stuff. Might have been same set as this one on ebay - Link to "www.ebay.co.uk"

- orange box looks about right, and I've still got the orange and blue hammer in my tool-box for gentle tapping tasks. But that set would not build some of the exciting things in the booklet - you'd need bigger/better/more sets for those. Baufix looks a newer and brighter possible successor.
