This Gerry Anderson model inspired by the t.v. series ‘Captain Scarlet & The Mysterons’ is in outstanding, original, virtually mint condition, carefully handled and stored.
This version has a pleasing metallic blue finish, with original figure of Captain Scarlet and firing front rocket. Spare rocket present.
Early style decorative transfers and paper labels, and the Captain Scarlet mechanism functions well. White bumper and deep grey base.
2nd issue with white plastic cover on the door release mechanism on the roof.
The brightly-coloured pictorial inner card plinth is an excellent backdrop for the model. Vivid fresh card and day-one bright colours on crisp card. Couple of wheel slot tears caused by movement of the model in the box.
Instruction Leaflet still present. Nice to see the packing sponge along with the little ‘slip of paper’ and blue card packing ring still present too! Not an easy find.
Large pictorial outer box impresses with bright colours on fresh, intact card. Light wear.
One of the nicest examples we have seen in a long while.
