Thought this was a neat piece when I found it...Magen David Adom raises money here in the Toronto area to send ambulances and medical equipment to Israel . Appears to be from around 2005 ?
Found it loose in the thrift store , took it to the cash w/ my other baggie hoping they would just toss it in and they did :D

from the mid 2000 up to 2015 that casting was very popular in the Majorette range and has been used for many variations of ambulances, fire dept. vans, police vans etc.

:drool: :drool: :drool: Oh my...that is wonderful. And in such excellent condition. What a neat ambulance to add to your collection. I know a few years ago Magen David Adom had another promo unit available here in the US - thinking it was Brian49 that was able to get some of them for members here. One made a donation to Magen David Adom and could get one of the ambulances - these were available in yellow and white.

PJ,

I have the same model, but was not the one who ordered a bunch and resold them here. It may have been Jeff Webster?

Thanks for the tip on the site Warren, I sen them an e-mail as they didn't offer any shipping options for Canada. Ido have a contact in Australia that may be able to help out if anyone is interested in the Helicopter or Ambulance let me know.

So I already have the ambulance as well, but the Helicopter is new to me. I have made contact with MDA Australia and I'm working on getting 5 of each for the group. They are $10.00 each AUS with a shipping cost of $20 AUS, I'm hoping to get the parcel as a combined shipping total. I'll keep you all up to date as we progress through the deal.

Glen, Are the helicopters MB sized or larger? If they are lager, I'll pass since they won't fit in my display.
