The Schuco Piccolo models definitely the better models but primarily think in terms of for money and weight for money and you only had a little pocket to spend, the choice was easy.

in the 1950’s, the era of Germany’s miraculous revival, the toy shops in the suburbs carried items for the small The Schuco stores, who always had the more financially strong, located in the city centers and to serve to masses.

As the commodity prices, especially which was the main ingredient for started to rise by the end of the 1960’s, had no choice but to discontinue the production. In the last Piccolo’s left which the exception of the Coles which continued until the of Schuco in 1976.

However, the range was replaced in the same 1969, by the more detailed and series of 1/66 scale.

The of Piccolo’s is not only the always high weight but also the crafted nickel axles and the rubber tires.

Vintage are hard to get by nowadays and when can be found, they often a high degree of play Absolutely mint items mint boxes are almost to find. That is also the why collectors will pay very prices for these untouched

A New Era Begins.

Production of the Piccolo had seized in 1969. It was only at the end of the / early 1990’s that the family, who had acquired a number of the dies, attempted to re-instate the but Werner Nutz died he could really get the production Most probably, the Hendrix Set was a development, NOT headed by Nutz.

The true Piccolo fans delighted to see the first re-issued Arrows appear on the market in the of 1994. The models were with the help of Daimler were sold in a beautifully drawer-box exclusively through Benz dealerships. These did not carry racing numbers.

The future of the Piccolo range bright and the continuous addition of new and even model ranges make sure that is still around many from now. New model comprise such items as The only thing that will not venture into is the of the old airplane series. After Schabak, that rose the ashes of the old Schuco company, has well taken care of the and is thriving on it.

One factor of success of the current is that Schuco does not copy the old models. On one side, the of old models are marked replica or on the bottom plate so that can always be distinguished from a one and on the other side, the models also be improved with details etc. A good of this is the Volkswagen Karmann

Also the boxes are not exact of the vintage ones. This is done to prevent them being passed off as vintage they are not.

The modern age Piccolo’s are now well over 250 when one all the promo models into as well. One portion that is overlooked is that the basic have often been in a number of colors although collectors restrict themselves to one color. The normal Piccolo’s are produced in lots of 4,000 of many are still bought as a Consequently, a large portion of will go lost over The promo models however, are in quantities between 1,000 and pcs which almost all go straight collections and not many will go

Collecting the promo models is of a challenge though as in most the full production goes to the company and a collector needs a dealer in order to be able to lay his or her on those special models. is also the reason which of the recent models have a price level which is hard to believe.
