Notes

Complete and authentic throughout, this SHADO 2 Mobile has an original military green finish (so often included in some military Dinky collections).Bright red interior, and a pale green base. Scarce version with a smooth roof. Perfect fresh ‘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! Complete with spare missile.

Virtually mint condition.
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. Light wear/grubbiness. Nice to see that this example comes complete with both the inner card packing piece and the most elusive* Instruction Sheet* for the firing mechanism.
