Schuco has impressive things in program with the two series edition 1:43 and Pro.R 1:18. The novelties, which were recently delivered, inlcude for example the Volkswagen VW T1b as towing vehicle for the racing transporter, which was limited to scarce 500 units under the item number 450905900. These modelcars are produced of high quality polyurethane resin, in which useually no functional parts are given. The material makes lower demands on the mold making, whereby small batches in the production can be economically represented. Schuco nevertheless makes an exception: With the VW T1b in the scale 1:18 or the closed structure of the trailer, the tailgate can be opened and allows thanks to correct interior the admission of a contemporary modelcar. And what else is worth mentioning?
The models to the role models from the 1950s, which Schuco releases out of diecast though: The Porsche 356 A coupé from 1955, which the people form Fuerth present in the scale 1:43. The model is available under the item number 450260200, limited to scarce 750 pieces and is a must have for every collector of sportscars from Zuffenhausen. In the same quantity and under the number 450269900 Schuco now offers modelcars of the VW beetle, the so-called Ovalis, which not only has the correctly executed oval rear window, but also brings along a corresponding time trailer from the production of Westfalia. The turquoise-colored paint and whitewall tires harmonize perfectly with the rest of the car. We find the Wolfsburg coat of arms on the trunk lid to be particularly appealing, which remains closed.
Two modelcars for the price of one, so approximately you can describe the following presented miniatures: Under the item number 450367200 presents Schuco the replica of a Barkas platform truck B1000, which brings along a Simson Schwalbe KR51. The details are fantastic in both models: the appearance of the cab fits like chalk and cheese. Perfectly detailed is the grill of the built in the years 1961 to 1990 in the VEB Barkas works Karl-Marx-Stadt delivery van, which was powered by a two-stroke engine with 1.0 liter displacement and 34 kW / 43 hp. 50 cubic centimeters with 2.5 kW / 3.4 hp made the first generation of the Schwalbe KR51, which ran off the band from 1964 to 1968 in the VEB vehicle and hunting weapon factory "Ernst Thalmann" in Suhl and which Schuco replicates really masterfully in scale 1:43. Have fun with it!
