Matchbox Super Kings Saval Kronenburg B.V. MAC 12 Airport Crash Tender Pre-production trial model - red body with City Airport Authority Airport Fire Rescue labels, silver roof sections, bare metal roof foam monitor, turquoise green roof-lights, clear windows, black rear roof mounted exhausts, silver painted base with incomplete copyright date and without model number cast, black plastic wheels with red hubs, rear roof can be opened to reveal internal water tank & hose running from tank to roof monitor but we are unable to confirm if an electric motor is fitted to this model but certainly there is no electrical wiring or battery terminal within the body cavity. This is the actual trial model illustrated on Page 57 of "Collecting Matchbox Diecast Toys the First 40 Years" book by Kevin McGimpsey and Stewart Orr - Excellent Plus with some black flaking from monitor retaining clip and central right hand body label stating to peel away from body (see extra photo). Impressive large scale model that was never put into production by the factory, this being the first we have offered for sale complete with the intended labels applied.
Estimate: £2000 - £2400
