A great shop this Lars. Really detailed and the bomb is a nice touch.

Here’s my loose and my Palitoy boxed one. Another where QC missed the error text on the back

Some great photos of your lovely ships Andy.
I don’t collect diecast but really appreciate this ship, the colours really pop!

Cheers both,

I do wonder why Kenner went with the red on these when yellow was used in the film. I'd guess the designers used B&W images?

Very late to the party on this one, but here's a few photos of one I have. It's an opened Kenner example with the correct text on the back.
