Notes

Complete and authentic throughout, this SHADO 2 Mobile has an original military green finish (so often included in some military Dinky collections). Very pale grey bright interior, and a pale green base. Version with detailed roof casting. Complete ‘SHADO 2’ labels on both sides. Bright silver firing mechanism. Smooth running silver tracks on brown rollers. Inspired by the Gerry Anderson UFO t.v. series, this model has a slick flip-over roof mechanism which reveals a formidable rocket just waiting to be fired!

Barely a mark to the paint.
Later issues of this model came in the rather unsatisfactory bubble pack style of packing (especially unsuitable for this model, given its weight). This early issue (1971) comes in the detailed, colourful card box which is complete and bright. A little age/handling wear. Traces of old tape which kept the end flaps closed.

A nostalgic treat for Gerry Anderson fans!
