These fine coach built coupes were built using traditional methods of aluminium over a timber frame and some 250 are thought to have been made in Rometsch’s Berlin workshops between 1957 and 1961 when the Berlin Wall was built and much of the workforce found themselves on the opposite side to their employer! Beneath the striking bodywork was a humble VW Beetle chassis and the car modelled appears to be that in the VW museum. The two tone red and white paint finish is excellent and the trim has been neatly fitted. The shape looks good and it certainly makes for an unusual modelling subject.
From the original creators of the Neo range, this resincast series offers a wide range of mostly road car subjects. Some are very familiar classics but we also see plenty of very rare and usual machines ranging from Maharajah's Rolls Royces to Citroen and Volvo limousines! Overall casting quality is excellent, paint finishes usually to a very high standard and plenty of fine etch used for small trim. Wire wheels on some subjects can be a little unconvincing but otherwise very consistent. Made in China.
