What is your impression of Schuco?

I saw some that looked very interesting but the pics were to small to see what sort of finish they had.

If you buy the regular Schuco releases they are pretty good , but they also do a junior line in 1/43 which arent as good , but are considerably cheaper .
Ive had quite a few in the past , mainly Vauxhalls and Opels which I was very happy with .

Although somewhat in the shade of fellow German company Minichamps, Schuco are actually a pretty good maker - sometimes the wheels are a little overscale, but. recent releases seem to have corrected this.

As Gary says, there is a much cheaper Junior range - these are really made by Hongwell / Cararama.

Their trucks are also very good - if you like '50s & '60s Germans
