Dear Piccolo Friends,

The annual Piccolo meeting took place once again this year on 12 June 2005 in the Lüneburger Heide district of Germany. Claus Heitmann organised everything to his usual exacting standards. At the instigation of Claus Heitmann, Schuco launched a special model (VW T1 box van “7th meeting of the Schuco Piccolo Friends”) limited to 99 pieces as a surprise for the delegates.

The participants received the model in the tried and tested wonder bag, which was replaced this year by a high-quality printed wooden box.

The meeting was characterised by its usual warm and informal atmosphere. As in previous years, Max Deumens again showed some of the real rarities from his collection for everyone to see. So we were able to admire some Piccolo originals in fantastic condition that have not yet been re-launched as replicas (FX Atmos, Firebird, Coles cranes, etc.).

The Schuco team would like to thank everyone most sincerely for the fantastic welcome in Fassburg. We were delighted to receive much praise in many pleasant and interesting conversations and we were happy to take on board a few valuable ideas and criticisms.

We are already looking forward to the 2006 meeting!

With best wishes from Fürth,
The Schuco team
