Finally after many years today I found a 3 pack with this long awaited variation, one of the last models I wanted to fulfill my collection of My First Matchbox models. This Police Launch with the rare THAILAND base was in a 3 pack which ended this afternoon on Ebay UK. The seller had more My First Matchbox models.
Have to get in hands but very happy with it already.

Congratulations Marcel. What a great sense of achievement you are now experiencing. I will celebrate at my Home with a cup of tea and a sandwhich knowing one of my collector friends has finally found something he has been chasing and it virtually completes a collection, nice one Marcel.

Again, I am very pleased for you Marcel, as these 'My First' models must have been marketed in limited retail outlets and not the normal toy and model shops and I see by the sticky label on yours it came from TESCO, a large supermarket retailer in the UK.

Do you know how many more variations you are chasing.

thanks for posting these.

I realy like the My First Matchbox range.
Unfortunately I recently missed a rare set on Ebay which I didn't have sofas.
