Atlas Editions Germany has announced the immediate cancellation of any more models in this series which I have been describing for MAR Online. Three collections of vehicles of the former DDR remain: DDR Auto Kollektion; DDR Nutzfahrzeuge; and DDR-Motorrad Kollektion.

Atlas seem to be quick to close down collections which are not selling as they hope and to replace them quickly. The Dinky Collection was closed in the Autumn of 2016 for example. The latest collection from Atlas in Germany is an Ambulance collection which has started with a Mercedes-Benz Binz ambulance which will be familiar to all those who collected the James Bond Vehicles series.
