In found these Midori chassis. Well, they are marked with a magic marker Midori, so are they?
Are all them Midori, even the unmarked ones?

They worth $50 each?

Top left  3 are Midori, not worth $50 each.   The top right is Tamiya, probably worth $50, can't remember which car it fits, D Jag maybe.   Bottom 4 I don't know, but $50 apiece  seems high, but if you want them, it's your money.    Philippe knows all this import stuff as do some of the Aussies, you may get better answers.   Most of this stuff was as common in Oz as Revell was In America.

I believe Matt's correct on the top row, but I think the brass anodized stamped/sprung is for the Mclaren.  D-Jag was like it, but more basic.


Third over in the bottom row I think I saw in a car by Kitty from Switzerland, but probably Japanese origin (perhaps Otaki?).


Personal opinion on price is: 10 years ago, absolutely, today, meh...

The third one from the left on the bottom looks like a Tokyo Plamo to me, and the last one appears to be marked "Imai"


but I don't know if that's correct.
