Owing to the current ongoing situation, the DTCA 2020 AGM which had been booked for the end of June, cannot now take place.   We will have to try and reschedule for later in the year once matters are clearer.

Production of the DTCA special edition Omnisport model has been postponed.

-298 Emergency Services Gift Set (1963-66)

Some one tells me that this is a variation of the original 298 set of four models with :

007 Petrol pump attendants.
008 Fire Station Personnel.
263 Superior Criterion Ambulance.
276 Airport fire tender.
277 Superior Criterion Ambulance.
258 Ford Fairlane USA Police car.

As I have never seen this one, can some one confirm that it has been issued by Meccano ? I think not.

Jacques. This model was sold by Vectis on 10 September 2009 for GBP 380. I have looked for more photos and on all the photos I have seen, only 4 vehicles are added to the Set instead of 5. The 434 Bedford TK Crash Truck is not shown in any other set that I found, while on all photos personnel has been added to the set, missing in this set. I think the previous owner added the Bedford Truck to the Set in the absence of personnel.

Kind regards, Jan O.

Jan

Thank you for your answear which confirms what I thought. Unfortunately, my Mac is too old and I do not have access to the Vectis web site any more. I am considering an investment into a new Mac shortly.

Kind regards
