New Wiking 1:87

Since Schuco has launched its vw181 1:87 stream, I thought Wiking has lost all interest in making some new models.  But hurray... they have shown a sign of life as a new Wiking release is available now:  a red cross version.

Gay Toys inc.

These 28cm long models were made by Gay Toys inc, USA. (Gay in the meaning of "happy", to be precise).  The orange version is the most common color, the other colors I only saw once on my 181 quest.

FM 709

This must be the greatest 181 model ever!  From FM (Germany), only 7 are made.  Scale is 1/18, nice and large.  But the details are amazing: removable top, windows, doors... Every door or hood has a little locking mechanism.   Steering wheel works nice and all seats are foldable. And top of the bill: the car can move because of a little winding up motor.
