SCHUCO 1/43 SETRA S6 TOUR BUS PAINTED FOR HERMANN RUSER COMPANY






Setra is a renowned German maker of buses and touring coaches. The name comes from the German word Selbsttragend (self supporting). This refers to the company’s complete control of all aspects of making their buses. Until 1995 the firm operated under the name Kässbohrer-Setra, but economic difficulties forced its sale to Daimler Benz, under whose ownership it continues today. Your Schuco S6 model comes with the distinctive Setra name design and “K” logo imprinted on the display base. The first Setra bus, the Type S8, so called because it contained eight rows of seats, was introduced in April 1951. It featured a self-supporting body, a concept now featured in most modern buses. Equally unusual at the time was the decision to locate the engine behind the rear axle; another Kässbohrer-Setra innovation which subsequently became mainstream. The design simplifies the production process and creates a range of passenger-focused possibilities. Buy it now
