Notes

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

One little chip 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, fresh and bright. Couple of small storage rubs and a very small end flap tear.

A nostalgic treat for Gerry Anderson fans!
