Metal Military Mission by Märklin

We saw this range for the first time last year. They were back this year with a developed range. Is seems popular and we can see that Märklin are interested in attracting other modellers by producing a few non-German items. Some English, Swiss, Austrian and Dutch models have been added to the range.

These are a few photos that I took on their stand:

Helicopters seem to be the fad. On trains, on the scenery and hovering above the layouts too (suspended of course).

There is a Britische Reinarmee set in HO, the models are probably representative of vehicles operating in bases in Germany. We have a couple of Land Rovers and a Bedfords on a DB transport wagon. The coach may be marked with British markings, but it is German built. The set (Art. No: 47950) sells for 99.95 Euros.

The Land Rover and Bedford CF (Opel Blitz) look very much like the old Wiking models - I have examples of both.

You missed out the fact that the LR bumpers are incorrect !

I could have added that as far as I know the British army didn't use Bedford CFs either. I know that the RAF used them with a box body, but thats a different matter.

I feel sure Alastairq could tell us for sure.
