Nice - I found a guy on Facebook who does loads of 1:64 3D printed wheels including Fuchs. I bought a set along with the Ronal Teddy bears I put in the Lupo I did
Wheel Car Tire Vehicle Automotive tire


Now I need to find a suitable project for the Fuchs

A couple of VW arrivals today. First up, a Toosietoy

I do have one already but it was battered so got a repaint

This one's a bit of an oddity that I don't know a lot about. Italian "Ingap" that's presumably intended to go in a model railway diorama as it's quite small and made of plastic. I'm assuming it's from the 50s as it's an oval

I was sent this Tonka buggy by a friend in Ireland who frequents his local market.

Turned out to be pretty badly corroded so when this one popped up at the toy fair for 50p I grabbed it

Body and base from the "green" (originally purple) one and interior, wheels and rollbar from the pink were used, colour is Rover Amethyst with some pink pearl over the top

Shame the sun isn't shining as the paint looks pretty spectacular when it does

That’s quality haven’t seen one before! The rover was my favourite car as a kid so stayed in good condition, gave it a mini Resto too 😂 I’ve a rare red one with black roof mint in the box hidden away too

Just picked this up, was looking for a Swedish Galanite to go with my Beetle but this is actually a Norwegian Tomte-Naerdal

Also just finished this Matchbox Volks-Dragon, it was a real pain with terrible casting marks, and I had to strip it after painting it the first time after the black crazed. Also reshaped the rear bumper as the original one is like a girder

Excellent work have a few rough Volksgragond, that looks superb! I remember visiting an aunt when I was about four or five and playing with a pickup like that and really wanted to take it home 😂 haven’t seen one since

The Volks-Dragon was one I always remember playing with as a kid, think my first came from my cousin and got a Humbrol repaint! There are a few variations to look for, mainly the window colour and different stickers on the front.
That one ^ had to have a base swap as the original was very corroded, and doesn't seem to fit very well in the headlight area, going by how rough the body was I'd say it was one of the last out of the mould - they get pretty worn out it seems.

The pickup you remember was more than likely a Tomte - I thought Galanite made one but can't find any reference to it now

Think all the volksdragons I have are red and in played with condition I maybe repainted the silver on the wheels. Really haven’t looked near that stuff in years
