Madmatz red 9" floor tiles

Post by type21f » Sun Feb 24, 2019 7:59 pm

Did I imagine that Madmatz used to do 16 shades including a deep red 9" tile called Rosso?
I have just looked to get a tile kit with Mocha and Rosso and the Rosso is not listed!
Even worse the range is only now 10 shades?
Is this true?
So if they did..has anyone got an unused kit with Rosso tiles they wish to sell?

Maybe a blessing in disguise..
If I cannot find any Rosso.. for my Devonette.
I like the Ice and Mocha as shown in this reader's ride..
No idea what colours were originally used.
Ice and Charcoal I suspect.

Erm, it looks like the originals in that photo were... black & white?

Err... Yes that is a black n white picture...of a Turkis bus from the 1963 Devonette brochure with Turquoise Toile du Juoy curtains as any **** can see!
Was hoping for a variation on this theme.. using the Red and maybe a pale Mocha.. or Cream or Ice not so sure about the Grey or all Red..

By 1967 the choice was more conservative?
