Here it finally is, Siku's release list for 2001! Besides the new passenger cars being released this year like the VW Golf Convertible Generation IV, Mercedes C 320 and the new Jaguar 'S' type Siku paid special attention to something that is of importance to all drivers; the road itself!
If you have a special interest in road construction equipment you'll be delighted with the new road paver, road milling machine and Hamm tandem roller. As usual these models are real accurate. (send me an e-mail if you're interested in images)
But enough talk. Here's the list divided in Siku's four release waves.
