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 cars had in 1969. It was only at the end of the 1980’s / 1990’s that the Nutz who had acquired a number of the original attempted to re-instate the series but Nutz died before he really get the production started. probably, the Hendrix Set was a simultaneous NOT headed by Nutz.

The true fans were delighted to see the re-issued Silver Arrows on the market in the fall of 1994. The were made with the of Daimler Benz, were in a beautifully etched drawer-box through Mercedes Benz These models did not carry numbers.

Only shortly in December 1994, the German car magazine Motor Klassik their desire to issue a version for the Techno Classica in April 1995. Time was too to allow for a new model and Daimler was prepared to donate 600 pcs of the no-number Arrows. The cars got a black number applied but after the 300 pcs were done, they to the conclusion that the originals drove with RED numbers. they changed the color. models can easily be distinguished the later models as the paint is rough and on current models it is smooth.

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.

Tips for Collectors.

Ever the introduction of the first re-issues, the of collectors has been growing It is interesting to see that a good of women has taken an interest in them.

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.
