I've just ordered a light blue 3-door Schuco model from this site.

http://www.mscautomodels.com

Run a search for VW up! and you'll see a selection of die-cast models, ranging from the 1:87 scale Herpa to the Schuco 1:43.

It's not quite my model as it has the sun roof, but it's close - it even has the Classic alloy wheels!

The price for postage is £1.00 cheaper than ordering from eBay, by the way, but it's still quite expensive, although it is a limited edition. Though how many light blue owners are there?


There are also silver, red, black and white 3-door versions available but they are much more likely to sell out quickly.

The item is not currently available from vw - Dieser Artikel ist momentan nicht lieferbar!

Sold out

Yeah I had seen that but take note of what M.S.C. Automodel's site says:

****PLEASE NOTE THIS ITEM WILL COME DIRECT FROM GERMANY. DELIVERY IS APPROX 3-10 WORKING DAYS*****PLEASE ASK BEFORE YOU BUY THAT WE STILL HAVE IN STOCK, AS OUR SUPPLIERS STOCK CHANGES ON A DAILY BASIS.******<br style="color: rgb153, 153, 153; font-family: Tahoma, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 11px; font-weight: bold; line-height: 17px; text-align: center; : rgb23, 23, 23; ">



They order directly from "Germany", I'm guessing they are referring to the manufacturer "Schuco" which also states (only found the up! Black)Currently out of stock!.

As a regular buyer of diecast models, are these actually available yet?

It can take months between the manufacturer releasing details (and pictures) of pre-production models to their distributors and them actually being available to purchase - a bit like the 1/1 up!

I guess Schuco will be having them made in China (at factories that produce models for other people too) and they are often slow to schedule production.
