Here's the least expected mass-market die-cast fire apparatus model of all time, a Matchbox Real Working Rigs replica of a Colet K/30 Jaguar airport crash truck. Yup, that's a real rig, albeit one that looks straight from a science-fiction film. Read about the real thing, which is equipped with a 1000-1500 GPM pump and a 2000-3000 gallon tank. Now appearing in local stores. Click to enlarge:

That’s pretty neat, and REALLY odd! I’ll be looking for it on my trips to Tar-jhay and Wally World. And on a weekend trip to the Cary Toys ‘R’ Us for the little guy, I found the white version of last year’s Matchbox Pierce Quantum Ladder truck. Sweet!

I would love to see a real one of these operating out at KRDU. The Oshkosh’s still get alot of attention when out and about. (And I believe KRDU’s Oshkosh’s are the hotness). I can only imagine how a Colet would be received!

Found one at my local Target; none at Wally World or K-mart
