The Bub toy company was founded by Paulus Bub in Nuremberg in 1851. In the first half of the 20th century, Bub manufactured tinplate cars and trains and was one of the first companies to produce diecast accessories for model trains. The company had to close down in the early 1960s. In 2002, the Bub name was revived by Premium ClassiXXs for a range of nostalgic diecast models in about 1/87th scale, similar to the Schuco Piccolo models. The finish of each model is up to the standards of the diecast toy industry in the time when the original car was built. So the cars from the 1930s to the 1950s are entirely made of metal, whereas the cars from the 1960s and 1970s have clear plastic windows, additional plastic parts and more realistic wheels. For Deutsche Post Philatelie, the German philatelic bureau, Bub produced a VW Beetle in approximate 1/40th scale with clockwork in the style of the historic Micro Racer series by Schuco. In early 2010, the company also introduced tinplate car models. However, the replica of the Porsche 356 originally made by JNF remained the only model in this series. Along with Premium ClassiXXs, Bub was taken over by the German mail order business Model Car World in 2012. New 1/87th scale models were regularly released until 2015, afterwards production was limited to exclusive models for external customers.
