And I have several Christmas Ornaments and other Beetles in 1:64 scale.

Does anyone know if there are more than these 8 beetles in 1:18 scale?

Hi KaeferModelle,

Just curious about why all the photos that you post have the Copyright C emblem and the www.KaeferModelle.de . . .

. . . most of the time that distracts from looking at a really nice photo that you post Question

. . and besides, have all those photos really gone through the Copyright Preparation, Copyright Registration,
and received an official Registration Certificate Question



Hello Bob,

I am the owner of www.KaeferModelle.de! Very Happy All photos, which I show here, I have made myself for my forum and they show only my models. That's why I write my copyright on all photos.

So I did not do them for TheSamba, just taken them out of my forum to show them here. Wink

Thanks for the information. I have the red beetle too. He is the No. 6 in my list. I just did not show a photo because I forgot it. Very Happy

But it is true that the red JL and also the two White Lightnings are very rare.

A user of my Beetle Models forum told me that Herbie actually did not have the typical Herbie decals in the movie scene.

That is correct.

I have the same one - same cars and colors. Funny how both have the same crease in upper right corner, must be where it's grabbed when they're stocking the shelves.

I can't believe its from 2004. I had to go find mine in the basement with my 'seconds' - there just isn't enough room to display everything.

Here are a couple more Johnny Lightnings that I have - the 1:18 Grateful Dead bettle:

I seldom keep toys packaged up, but I have a couple of Christmas ornaments that haven't made their way to the tree yet.
