August, 21 2012 - Volkswagen T4 & T5 models
At every VW show one of the questions we always get asked (several times!) is are there any models of VW T4 & T5 vans.
So heres the answer....
As of todays date there isn't very much. If you want a T5 then this Cararama Ambulance is pretty much your only choice. Buts thats all about to change!
Due before Christmas we have the following new releases due from Premium Classixxs, all in 1/43 scale and all finished to the usual very high standard we have come to expect from them. Each is limited to 1000 pieces worldwide.
Volkswagen T4 Box Van - Ice White
Volkswagen T4 Box Van - Red
Volkswagen T4 Estate - Ivory
Volkswagen T4 Estate - Yellow
Volkswagen T4 Bus - Feuerwehr (red)
Volkswagen T4 California (Grey / White) - Folding roof
Volkswagen T4 California (Green) - Folding roof
In terms of T5 models, there is an even greater choice due covering a wider range of scales and manufacturers due
WSI - VW T5 van Blue (1/50 scale)
WSI - VW T5 van White (1/50 scale)
Schuco - VW T5 Van White (1/87 scale) Due September
Schuco - VW T5 Van Krone (1/87 scale) Due November
Schuco - VW T5 Van Polizei (1/87 scale) Due November
Incidentally, Minichamps produced a 1/43 T5 a few years back though these are now no longer available. There was another version announced for 2012 and then subsequently cancelled.
