Tekno Models 870 Honest John Military Truck
'U.S. Army Honest John' Scania Vabis Military Truck with Missile, by Tekno Models, No. 870. Near mint plus/boxed, with packing card. From The Borders Collection.
Finished in military green with U.S. stars on both doors and bonnet. Intact ‘U.S. Army’ lettering at the rear of the vehicle.
Colourful red and yellow elevating section complete with red and white missile. Complete ‘U.S. ARMY HONEST JOHN DANGER’ transfers on both sides. Crane section raised well when the winding handle is turned.
An impressive example – although there is a near-inevitable area of paint loss on the roof where the boom rests. When the crane section is not elevated it is not visible of course. Cast wheels and spare stowed. Well-shaped original tyres.
Vibrant card box is complete, clean, fresh, brightly-coloured and crisp. Looks like old shop stock. Period shop label and price on an end flap.
With packing insert too:
