Which is why, when I see a good discount opportunity I need to grab it.
Siku produce a variety of domestic only models for the Swiss market and this huge Setra coach is one example. Liveried in Swiss Post, this is a well presented and heavy model.
I am not sure who this is actually aimed for – there are a few moving parts – the doors and engine hatch, but for the child, this does not offer huge play value. It’s a bus………I am sure that a HW woudl suffice instead.
However, for the collector, this is a lovely, unique model – the standard stock version is a heavy metal tour bus and looks bloody shite. I have not put this in the Garage for display, but I think it would show well.
So although expensive, I think that this is an essential addition to the foreign collection – before it is too late.
I have at least one more Siku Swiss exclusive to get and then I will be happy with all the ones that I have got.
