Originally, these scaled down Wiking copies were
hidded in the Ferrero 'kindersurprise'
chocolate eggs but every now and then they turn up as kits. We know that these
kits were / are made in Hongkong and that they were sold in Japan but who knows
more about the manufacturer of these little kits ? Other information, like
information about other kits, is also very welcome !
Compared to the original (Wiking) models:
We have found two other kits in the meantime, one, the Volkswagen 1500, is a Wiking copy, but the other one is definately not. Pictured here is the McLaren M8A model and it's box.
The Volkwagen 1500 had a nice surprise hidden inside... on the inside of the bottomplate we found this 'Cosmo' logo (picture further below). Could this be the manufacturer ? Your information is still welcome !
