Cover of the VWoA magzine?
This flyer did catch my eye. We all know that there was a "give the car a name" contest in the UK. The winning name was 'Trekker'. I don't know how or why the car was called Thing in the US, but that's how the car is known over there. If this flyer is genuine, there was also a contest in Germany to give the car a name instead of the "type 181" designation. The winner would drive home with a new car. But apparently there was no winner? There is no specific German name for the type 181...
I have seen these for sale on German Ebay for a couple of weeks from the same seller. There are announced as being "NOS Faller AFX thunderjet etc..." and is according to the seller a collector's item: "being part of his collection". A must have? No, not for me. It is a badly painted, crude resin copy of a Kyosho model. Asking price: €39 !
You don't see these every day. Projector on and lights out, PLEASE!
a new Schuco 1:87 release. Their third Fire brigade version.
One of those sweet but hard to find things...
