Maybe they will ? It has taken them long enough to get this one out, and all they did was change the colour.
They seem to be one of the kings of colour changes.

F**k you Photobucket.

Those 911s look pretty good to my uneducated eyes. When Schuco aren't being weird they make some pretty nice models.

Wonder if these 911 s have improved since the previous release (orange coupe and blue taga) or they are as bad as before.

They're probably just repaints, it's all they seem to do.

Eh I don't know, to me they don't look that great. Look at the paint finish to the left of the rear license plate on the red one.
I mod stuff

Anyone know anything about that fabulous transporter?
What kind of engine was fitted (It looks like an air cooled VW type of some sort)?

Does anyone else think that these sort of old models that Schuco do just look so toy like and certainly not worthy of the asking price? Just look at that seriously crappy engine detail Craig posted!!!

Yep, the asking price, in this case €250 is far too much! It's annoying really as their diecast split screen campers are a lot less and far more detailed, they've done so many of them though I guess that's how they keep the cost down.

F**k you Photobucket.

That transporter definitely looks like a toy! That's the first thought that crossed my mine.

It's right hand drive though, probably a first in 1/18th scale for a split T1.
Does that make it worth €200?
Not to me....

The whole model looks to be too long.
The rear side windows are where the length seems to be most obvious, causing the roof to look odd at the upper curvature point of the rear window.

I think the rims are too small compared to 1:1 too.

Rare care, prototype from BMW

More info here: https://www.bmwblog....1-m8-prototype/

Unusual model and doubt anyone else will make it and since I'm a BMW fanboi, had to have it.

I fully understand you G3org3y, looking at the unique subject.
But you cannot deny the model is flawed front to rear, one of Schuco’s worse attempts..
