VW 1500



Here are two images from the web that came up when I Googled "Limousin echelle H0".

Note, that the H is followed by a zero and not by a capital O. I read somewhere that on the Continent, H0 means half zero scale and not half O scale.

And, for some reason, up came a picture of an HO scale model of something called a VW 1500.



 I decided to find out more about the 1500. It turns out it was produced in the early 1960s and there is a Collectors' Club in California.
Their 2012 Calendar

A fine example.

The members.
And finally an archive picture from the assembly line in Hanover in 1962.

Always tempting fate when I look forward to anything.
