Ambassador Update 02 September 2015
Hello Matchbox friends,
Summer time is vintage car time... at least for me...several smaller and bigger meetings, rallyes and lots of fun.
Beginning August I went to a small place near the river Rhein called Hitdorf and did that with a very special car - see pic.
Sorry - pic is from a local newspaper so you normally do get a better quality from me! You know that Matchbox sold a model of that vehicle only some years ago?! (Check: http://www.mbxforum.com/11-Catalogs/00-Software/jnmb75nds.php?uSeries=Classic European Economy Cars&uCatalog=3002)
With the special protection the trips to follow will surely be safe!
Having fun with our Messerschmitt KR200 Convertible - my Mom and me!
But know show you some new stuff coming:
New models from the 1-120 series:
New color for the very sought after Tesla:
And a new layout for the police Dodge Charger:
Even better from this angle?
All this pics will surely also turn up on Johns and Davids lamely group
(http://lamleydlm.blogspot.de/). My friend John Nijhuis has devoted an extra page for my updates and report - check: http://www.mbxforum.com/01-News/900-Ambassador/jnambassador11.php
Rather sad news is that the supreme heroes series has been canceled. Only wave A with four models was produced and the other models shown from coming waves were just samples and not produced. But don’t be too sad - the best of world series is coming and surely fill the gap - check pics of three more models coming:
Lets start with the bike - surely special even in this very special set:
Printing on the seat proves that it is still before production and the pic came in really hot from the design team at the ToyBox at Mattel....
I include big pics so you don’t miss a detail....
And it surely would be wrong to miss a detail on this LandRover with emergency layout !
One more pic to enjoy!
Also we need a Cadillac - check out this beauty:
But we are not finished yet - highlight surely is Michaels 5.000 design - the bus:
And the other chocolate side....
But also the front view is nice and shouldn’t be missed:
Last time I did ask you about new Matchbox Originals to do and I still keep that question alive. I do get several ideas of licensed vehicles to be produced and surely everybody can name on the point 5-10 castings never done before and surely worth doing. But I think these ideas will help the design team even more!
Oil field pipe truck and Timberjack log skidder::
And on my lunchbreak a had one of these on my pedestrian way: Nilfisk City Ranger - surely a great challenge to create:
Because it bends in the middle to turn quicker:
Sometimes you find funny things on the way/road. This time a plane pulling kind of car....
If you know the wheels - yes - it is a duck (Citroen 2CV). At least the most useful and needed parts of it and surely it pulls a plane - prove picture!
I did take the picture on my rallye last weekend - the rallye was called “GoldRace” and took us from Jülich near Aachen (Aken) into the Netherlands and back home. Good weather and lots of fun:
Every team do get a Matchbox model Duesenberg with their own race number on it - so ours was number 2 ͙
From time to time I play with the little explore the world model ;) You surely can guess its purpose?!
We had lots of fun at the rallye and I wish you also lots of fun with the best hobby in the world....
