Matchbox Fire Departments

Postby FireEye » Sat Jan 23, 2016 2:44 pm

One of my favorite ways to collect Matchbox Fire & Rescue Vehicles is to group them by "Department". Many times individual vehicles share a color scheme or logos that are similar. For example, many newer pieces have "M.B.F.D." or "Matchbox County" logos. So I thought I would start off this thread by posting some of my old favorites. Hopefully others will add to it, and I'll try to add some in the future.

First is one I have spent a lot of effort gathering together (although I'm still missing a few), The orange paint scheme with blue and white checks and numbers:

Here is another one of my Departments. I think this is one of the handsomest liveries done by matchbox... the red and white colors with gold and black stripes and logos, including the gold Maltese Cross.

The last department I will post for now... These are the "Matchbox Fire Dept." vehicles characterized by a long stripe and 3 short stripes or dashes:

That orange paint scheme has always been my favorite of all of them. Never really saw anything like it in real life, but wow is it cool.
