Corgi Gift Set 4. Bloodhound Guided Missile Set. Near mint plus-very, very near mint/boxed. With Leaflets & all packing. Scarce item fro the Cheshire collection.
Issued between 1958-60 and a difficult set to find in any condition. It comprises:
1) Corgi 351 R.A.F. Land Rover. Tin canopy and flat spun wheels, including spare. Tow hook. Near mint plus with a wonderfully fresh lustre, unused condition. Just a couple of little marks. A nice example which just glows!
2) Corgi 1115 Bristol Ferranti Bloodhound. In near mint condition with the occasional little expected marking to the white finish at exposed edges. Nose cone is an authentic rubber replacement (common fault that they perish over time).
3) Corgi 1116 Launching Ramp is in very near mint condition. A couple of small marks that you have to look for on this complete launcher. Bright metal parts throughout.
4) Corgi 1117 Bloodhound Loading Trolley. Working well. Very, very near mint. Couple of mere dots away from mint! Bright metal parts. Lovely example.
The colourful outer box is one of the best we have seen. Intact, clean with excellent strong colours. Only the occasional minor rubbing. No graffiti. No repairs. Complete with both upper and lower packing pieces. We have not seen better!
Instruction Leaflet, promotional booklet and early (correct) Moorgate Corgi Club Membership Form is included.
Nice to see that the Rocket Age Leaflet is included – lots of details and pictures of this military range.
A fine military Gift Set which is always difficult to find in any condition, especially hard to find complete with such a fine box!
