Peter Stuyvesant was a famous tobbaco/cigarette brand in germany in the 70s. So the 747 Peter S. was advertising for this cigaretts. There are some more advertising Schuco 747 like "jetties"

In Germany "Peter Stuyvesant" was - at one time - a famous cigarette-brand. As far as I know "Schuco" made the 747-models as a promotional give-away for the manufacturer. The same applies for models with the "Jetties"-livery - "Jetties" were/are chewing-gums.

I was actually looking for the "Peter Stuyvesant Line" on the internet today but found nothing, except the wikipedia page for the historical figure...could it be that Schuco just honored him? They have sold airplanes in fantasy airline names or special editions before....

Ok...(edit)..retire most of what I said before now that I read the couple other previous comments about there being a cigarette brand.

That said I wish Schuco could release a Boeing 747 advertising Fry's, a famous electronics and supermarkets store brand in Phoenix (and imitating the REAL 747 with Fry's livery!!)
