Rothmans Mercedes Benz Racing Transporter

Post by LM24HRS »

Okay, hands up who has any Rothman sponsorship 1:18th Porsche 956's or 962's in their collection?

You have, oh good you will need one of these then :D

Model by Schuco, Scale 1:18th. Price; not much change from £600. Only 500 pieces going to be released. I have no details when it is due to be released.

I have no option but to go for it and order one as I have x3 956/962's plus a figure of Norbert Singer. I feel a very large diorama coming on at some stage, possible next year! ;)

Phew, I'm in the clear. Especially since I don't do 1:18 anymore. Fab model, but the price is horrifying.

Only 500 pieces....but if its like the 1:43 version it will be followed by:

500 pieces of the white Martini version,
500 pieces of the silver Martini version,
500 pieces of the Gulf version,
500 pieces of the Essex version,
500 pieces of the red version,
500 pieces of the maroon version,
500 pieces of the BMW version.

In the end, they'll probably make about 4,000 of these, which at £600 is £2.4million in revenue :shock: . I'm in the wrong business !

Having the Gulf transporter by Schuco in this scale, I looked at the box and you're right Ian, 500 pieces! :D

They are big!

On a related note, there is a great interview with a former Porsche mechanic and driver of one of these transporters here: https://www.pressreader.com/uk/clas ... 346541
