    Following on from last month’s article on the new 1/18 Schuco releases I thought I would continue the theme with the further addition of this 1/18 Schuco split window panel van blue in colour. These are now available on line for about $160 euro ($230 AU) delivered – expensive I know but these are mostly limited in production (1000 to be exact) and exclusive to Germany so you may want to consider taking advantage of the strong Aussie dollar.


    This month I have also featured some “one off” modified conversions to the 1/18 Schuco range of models that people around the world have undertaken.



    These are quite good ranging from lowering the body and putting on some slick wheels to making this red Porsche panel van looking like it has been stored away for some time in barn, the detail I must say is all very good.





    The Neptune blue pickup looks like it is ready for business at the VW Nationals!
