Custom 1:600

Hello all.
I'm a newbie to the forum and was a member if Scale 600. I've got a rather large collection of Schabak/Schuco. I've got a few q's that I hope you can help with.

1) have Schuco definitely stopped making 1:600 scale?

2) is there anyone/anywhere I can have custom 1:600 made?

There was someone on Scale 600 who used to do some exceptional custom model's but I'm not sure if he's on this forum(can't remember their name, sorry!)

3) Is there still a market for 1:600 do you think? With the advance of 3d printing etc, just interested to hear people's opinions

Regards

Re: Custom 1:600

Hi. Thanks for getting in touch. Can you send me a list of what you have left please. The one's I'm after are

United "blue tulip" 747 or 777
Gulf Air A340 "gold" (before the current one)
Qatar A330
Garuda 747-400 (new livery)


The following A380's
China Southern,
Air France,
Thai
Emirates (not sure if there was a non-special one, I'm not keen on the wildlife one tbh)

Etihad (I think herpa did this in 1:600, but I'm not sure if one was released of the current livery)

Korean Air
Malaysian

There are probably a few others but if you can also send me a list of what you have left then I'll go through that.

Thanks[/QUOTE]

Hi there,
seems you cant receive any PM's or have disabled that function.
There is no more any list as such, since the numbers were drilled down so massively it wasnt worth anymore keeping a list.

The models below are the ones that are still there :

Austrian Airlines Fokker 50
American Airlines F100
Air France 737-200
Lufthansa CV440
Pan Am Airbus A300
British Airways 757
Southwest Airlines 737-300 Silver One
Aero Peru 727-200 (without box)
Delta 757-200 (oldl Widget colours, without box)
Condor 707
National DC10
Ansett 747-300
China Airlines 747-400 (old colours)

2 empty boxes British Airways Landor 747-200 and Qantas 747-300

If you would need any further details, like the serial / version numbers, just let me know.

Thanks for the reply. I'm still getting used to the site so hopefully this message gets to you. Not sure if my pm's are disabled but I'll work it out eventually!

Thanks for the list too but it's probably not for me but thanks anyway

Re: Custom 1:600

It seems there are still fairly recent Schuco models. Here is a Qatar A350-900
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Qatar-Air...-127632-2357-0

Thai A380 is also on eBay https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Schuco-Av...-127632-2357-0

Personally I think the 1:600 market is dead. The detail is too few and the price is close to 1:500/400.

Re: Custom 1:600 / Size are not dead !

Hi to All Scale 600 aircraft model collectors:

our size are NOT dead ! Yes: Schuco disrupt / stopped the production in 2019 but there is still a small collector community for 1:600 . Can see some demands all over the world : not only in Germany or Europe : Have sell this year new or used Schabak/Schucos to the U.S.A, Canada,Australia and India!

Regarding "custom" Models i know an german collector and artist who create some "specials" like the attached FX B772 "Panda": But he made them only for pleasure and not for business ! That's sorry but real to understand.

P.S.: have a long list with available Schabak/Schuco's: pls sent a PM for request.

brgds
Michael

Re: Custom 1:600

So great to see the scale getting talk. I have about 250+ and am still building.

Would love to find a custom maker - need an Olympic 747 to complete my JFK IAB area!

Same! I've got about 200 models. Got a few more to get. I mainly collect widebodies and flag carriers.
Good luck trying to get the Olympic 747.

I still want to hear from anyone who can make custom 1:600 models!
