Dear Schuco fans,

The 60th International Toy Fair has opened in Nuremberg. Once again, hundreds of model fans have been waiting for this day with great anticipation and we will not disappoint you. We are delighted to be able to showcase many interesting new model releases.

This year Schuco is launching an exciting and unique innovation. Its 1:18 car models have been fitted with the very latest 2.4 GHz radio technology. And soon the VW T2a and Porsche 356 A Coupé will be launched under the “schucotronic 2.4” label. Schuco will also be turning heads with the Mercedes-Benz 0 317 “Porsche Renndienst” built on the same scale, but which does not have a driving mechanism.

To coincide with the showing of the film “Die Ludolfs” in cinemas from April 2009, SCHUCO is launching its unique Ludolfs edition: various models on all scales of the best known vehicles featured in the TV series about the four brothers from Dernbach.

Equally promising are the historic utility models on a scale of 1:43 including IHC 423, Mercedes-Benz L 408 and CLAAS SENATOR as well as the cars - Opel Kadett C Rallye, Opel Rekord E Caravan and Porsche 907 short tail. Nor have we forgotten the very latest range of new car models such as Audi R8 V10, Audi A5 Cabrio, Mercedes-Benz E-class and GLK, Porsche Cayman and the Boxster 2nd generation, the VW Golf VI, Plus and GTI.

New motorcycle classics have joined the 1:10 scale range – the Zündapp KS 750 "Graf von Stauffenberg“ with sidecar).

And collectors and fans of Piccolo models are eagerly anticipating new releases in the area of historical racing sports vehicles, namely the Porsche 356 Abarth and 917K.

Our models on a scale of 1:87 have gained an excellent reputation as regards racing. In addition to the Audi A4 and the Mercedes-Benz C-class in the DTM, many historic racing cars will be added to the range in 2009 including the Audi Quattro Sport, the BMW M1, the BMW 3,5 CSL and the Porsche 911 RSR)

With as many as six new models, including the CLAAS AXOS 330 and the Schlüter Super Trac 2500 VL, we want to continue to blaze a trail with the 1:32 scale.

The SCHUCO Junior Line also features numerous new items, the historic metal Distler figures Doppel Pfeil and the products in the Forces of Valor brand. The same is also true for the aircraft miniatures in the SCHABAK.

You can find information about the programme of new releases under the appropriate tabs on the website.

With greetings from Fürth!

The SCHUCO team
