Made in France

Scale 1:3 aka 117cm by 53cm.
The real stuff for kids or grown-ups.

Too bad the molding didn't last long enough, only 5 bodies were made and sold. Who are the fortunate 5? And what will they do with it?

Wiking @ scale 1:87

Between 1972 and 2004 Wiking in Germany made more than 30 different models, closed or with open roof. Some of the models came in a special box (for example the closed post-version). Another rare piece is a transparent one. They never went into sales because they were testmodels whenever a mouldingmachine was changed to make cars in another color. A clean transparent one ment that the machine was clean enough to use the new color. wikingc

Pimped @ scale 1:60

Strange indeed...a pink 181 made in Brazil! In the 80s Brazilian toymaker Rei bought the old Siku moulds and produced various 181 in the most hideous colors. The only way to know if these are original Sikus or Rei, is to look at the baseplate on which is clearly stated that the models come from Brazil.rei2

Think small

Not bad... a wiking 181 reworked and placed in a nice setting. Not bad at all, considering the scale (1/87).wiking181a
