We're getting spoiled in 2008. Marklin has announced 3 models in scale HO (1/87).
Matchbox's first 181 model:
A quick setup of the scales which are/were available. From 1/220 till 1/12. It is still ashtonishing that there's no 1/18!
Siku made some 181 models in the seventies. The serie was copied in Brazil in the eighties (production by Rei). Strong cars to play with.The bottom picture show the ones on my shelf:
a very small version of a 181. I think appr. scale 1/200 and made of tin.
