28mm Civilian Vehicles, Part I: Welly

A selection of Welly brand diecast cars, suitable in scale for 28mm gaming. This is the first in an ongoing project to document toys suitable for gaming.

(28mm figures from the Northstar "Fistful of Kung-fu" and Copplestone Castings "Future Wars" ranges provided for scale)

2003 Peugeot 206 (5dr)
Scale: 1/53 (WB: 2442/46.5; W: 1655/53.0)
Line: Welly NEX 1:60
Imprint: "Peugeot 206 / No.2231"

1970 Volkswagen Type 1 "Beetle"
Scale: 1/52 (WB: 2400/46.5; W: 1539/29.5)
Line: Welly NEX 1:60
Imprint: "Volkswagen Beetle / No.52222"

1998 Volkswagen New Beetle
Scale: 1/55 (WB: 2515/45.2; W: 1721/31.8)
Line: Welly NEX 1:60
Imprint: "Volkswagen New Beetle / No.2061"

1979 Mercedes-Benz Geländewagen SWB (W460)
Scale: 1/56 (WB: 2400/41.4; W: 1700/31.8)
Line: Welly
Imprint: "MB 300 GE / No.9593"

1998 Volkswagen Golf Mk4 (1J)
Scale: 1/56 (WB: 2512/44.4; W: 1735/31.3)
Line: Welly
Imprint: "VW Golf IV / No.8140"

1974 Trabant 601 Deluxe Limousine
Scale: 1/48 (WB: 2020/41.5; W: 1505/31.6)
Line: Welly NEX 1:60
Imprint: "Trabant 601 / No.52325"
Note: I consider 1/48 scale far too large for 28mm miniatures, even for cars as small as the Trabant. I personally prefer the slightly leaner Maisto Trabant 601 (1/51 scale) for 28mm miniatures, but I've included this listing for those who prefer larger vehicles.
