Default Lufthansa VW Bus with Figures Schuco

Quite hard to find for sensible money, and been hunting this one for a while.
One of 15x models this week
Schuco 1/43rd VW Bus with 2x Figures (cast metal)

Love the Bus and the figures. Since I have no clue. May I ask what you paid for it and what’s a fair price? When was this made?
Would love to have one myself one day.
Thanks
Ruben

Why pay so much more for this made by Schuco, when Corgi made exactly the same model in 1/43 without the figures? There's one here for just £9.99.

Because I have to have them all . already got another 20 or so vehicles arrive last week to photo. As before all up on the website.
as an aside the detail schuco are now doing is near to handmade specials. Just look at the Windscreen wipers on this model or the Mercedes star on the bus


Pre Covid I had collected 163 Aviation Vehicles mostly Corgi, EFE, Oxford Diecast with 1/200 Herpa and JC wings over the last 30 years.
Quick tot up today, there are 489 Vehicles on the website = 326 bought since covid started plus another 20 or so to be photo's and another 10-20 en route, that will be over 500. No wonder wifey is threatening leaving..

Very nice model. The figures look good too! I’ve occasionally paid what some would label an ‘over the top’ price for a model or two that I really wanted.
