11000 series features
The 11000 series consists of 20 packs of dimensions 20 x 16.5 x 4 cm, containing subjects in 1/32 scale with catalog numbers from 11001 to 10020.
The 11000 series was produced, from November 1971 to 1973, in a first graphic format, called the first edition, including the catalog numbers from 10001 to 10012, whose main characteristics can be summarized as follows:
- number of
pieces contained shown on the front of the packs
packs of the 600 series for packs 11011 and 11012.
The first packs of this edition contained within them a voucher to win a speedboat.
Subsequently, from January 1974, the 11000 series was produced in a second graphic format, called the second edition, also including the catalog numbers from 11013 to 100020, whose main characteristics can be summarized as follows:
- on the front of the packs the number of pieces contained is no longer reported but the wording "MAXI
packs of the 600
series, for the first 18 packs
Unlike the first edition, where packs 10011 and 10012 contain toy soldiers and vehicles of the aviators and sailors , in the second edition packs 11011 and 11012 contain only the soldiers of aviators and sailors and have different cover images, while the respective aviation and marine vehicles are contained in packs 11014 and 11015 which respectively have the same cover images as packs 11011 and 11012 of the first edition.
In the short period of transition from the first to the second edition, some of the first 10 packs of the first edition were placed on the market without the colored portion on the back, replaced by the completely white back with a list of the first 16 packs of the same series and the first packs of the 600 series as present in packs 11011 and 11012 of the first series (probably coinciding with the production of the same) creating what can be defined as an "intermediate edition".
Of 9 of the first 12 packs of the 11000 series (packs 11001, 11003 and 11005 are not included) a "French edition" was also produced, specially made for the French market and probably marketed in 1973.
Characteristics of this edition are the different illustrations on the front of the packs, except for the 4 relating to the great revolutions, the captions in French and the number of pieces contained which in some cases does not correspond to that reported in Italian marketing.
