Very Rare do i see a non German Scale from them
Since Schuco is a German brand seems normal that most of the Brands covered are European with focus on German brands... Germany doesn't really have a loss for vehicle to choose from and the licensing fees must be less than trying to license international brands. That said, I have seen a few Shelby & Ford models (again, FoMoCo has a slightly bigger presence than GM in Europe), so that might play a part

This Makes My 3rd Entry here

What i have here is scales in 2 inch. All of them are various make. I was overwhelmed by the precision that i haven't really checked the Make.

Please let me know if you need the make as-well. I shall check the same. For now a few pics of the 2 inch scales

From the Pic of the Mini (5th ) one can understand the size of the scales

Detailed 1:43 scale Ferrari. Your 2 inch models and their photographs are good.


Here is my 1:18 scale 1997 Porsche GT-3 Cup by BBurago (Italy)

You model looks great.
It was then when Porsche released some high performance versions of 911 S and also 993. Could you add in some close up of the wheel and break?

Did you also get to grab any of those 993 Turbo S same year 1997.

Hi,
Unfortunately no. This is the only Porsche in my collection (except for the Cayenne SUV)and was bought some time in 1999..

I will surely add some close-up shots of the wheel.

Amar,

we need more pictures, engine bay, interior, do the lids open (front). When BBugrago was made in Italy they had awesome quality and some very good line up. Unfortunately to have different price points in markets maisto bought BBurago and messed up the whole quality thing. But again there pricing is not that cheap as compaired to maisto.

Hey Manish and Cabmil,

Here are some more images of the Porsche's interior. The wheels are devoid of a disc caliper but in the late 90s, models were not as detailed as they are today and models mainly of Auto Art and Kyosho have a great amount of detail. Even the Maisto models we used to get almost five to six years back had good detailing unlike the present ones which can be termed toys at best. All they lack is pull-back action!!!

I am also adding images of another legend in the arena of rallying: my 1997 Ford Focus by BBurago (Italy). This model too is well detailed and the decals especially are as original (if not better) as the real thing.

That's a stunning Porsche. The car looks so good and well-detailed for a Bburago. The current Bburagos are all crap.
