Oh yeah... the 181 in vintage toys. From Japan and extremely rare.
For me a model of an unknown brand. It was for sale on Ebay (China). The item was listed as: "1/87 HO VW 181 1969 schuco ". The model looks like a scaled down Minichamps 1/43 copy. Has someone seen this model before?
The Matchbox has the US Style, the Japanese Kyosho has the European outfit. You can clearly see the difference in the taillights. Both models are from 2008
yesterday, I received a new batch of Siku Vw. I noticed that one of the red models had a plastic windscreen instead of a metal one. Oh boy oh boy... me happy man.
Today, a friend/modelcarseller offered me this model. It looks like an old Strombecker model but it seems brand new. On the bottomside a small sticker indicates "Industrias Alsi" ... Mexico.
