Notes

Complete and authentic throughout, this SHADO 2 Mobile has an original military green finish (so often included in some military Dinky collections). This scarce version has a green panelled roof and orange interior. Yellow interior, and a pale green base. Complete ‘SHADO 2’ labels on both sides. Bright silver firing mechanism. Grey tracks and brown 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)!

A few little marks 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 clean, showing light wear only.

A nostalgic treat for Gerry Anderson fans!
