One of the trio of t.v./broadcasting vehicles made between 1959-65.
This B.B.C. truck has a lustrous deep green and pale grey finish. This BBC TV Roving Eye model comes complete with the detachable aerial (often they seem to go astray!). Camera man on the roof swivels. More unusual issue with black BBC lettering on the camera. Delicate detailed crest transfers are complete on one side ( small thin scratch to the other side).
In all original, close to mint condition. A few tiny marks to the paint finish and a couple of stray dabs of factory grey paint.
Complete, bright box has barely any wear although note the box puncture which has pressed back into place. Tarnishing to staples. Card packing piece.
