One of my favorite Matchbox models as it has all sorts of nifty details. I do have the box for it but I have seem to have misplaced it along with several other boxes.
This model is hard to find with the white plastic ladder, hoses and side pieces. As these come off easily they are easily lost. Luckily there are reproductions available although this is all original. Also the water (or foamite) jet on top swivels. It would be turned sideways to avoid damaging it while in the box or carrying case. In addition the rear section is very well detailed with hoses and other equipment.
A short life for this model of only four years although it was and is quite popular.
Those boxes need to be around here someplace.
