450178200 Micro Jet “Super Sabre F100” assembling box
450510700 VW Scirocco “Model of the Year 2018 in tin box”
It is hard to believe that someone might place the rally numbers of the legendary Beetle Herbie on a transporter!
This models a 1953 split rear window Volkswagen with the correct triangular air vent windows in the doors. But has air intakes in the sides in front of the A-pillars which is from a 1951 version of the Beetle. This has been pointed out to Schuco in the past but they resist all calls for changes to be made.
