VW's may be available in 1:50 from architectural model suppliers. Or 1:64th in 'collectable toy cars'. Good luck.

There are a few at the end of this search on page 6 in 1/55 scale at Diecast Direct, a little pricy though, sorry.

bsrlee is right.

Most civilian architectural models are in 1:200/150/100. Sometimes you can find them in 1:33-1/3 from the days before CAD when we made 3D plastic models of industrial facilities (Ah Plastruct, how I miss you and the smell of MEK) or the old Airfix style 1:32.

But for 1/56, I think you're really into digging through the "child friendly" Dinky/Matchbox ranges for things that look sort of right.
