This striking and unusual vehicle was modelled by both Dinky and Corgi, but while the Corgi version was arguably better engineered, the Dinky version has a missile that can actually be fired!

In military olive drab with silver headlights and Royal Artillery markings front and rear. The twin cabs have clear glazing, and one of them has a driver figure. A handle at the rear may be turned to erect the missile - this one is the version with plastic gears. The missile is held onto the cradle by two spring-loaded clamps and can slide up and down so that it can be lowered onto the launching platform. Once clicked into place, the missile can be launched by moving a metal slider at the rear of the platform. The platform, which may be towed behind the erector vehicle, has four stabiliser feet that can be raised and locked into position for transport. All wheels are metal with black treaded tyres.

This model is generally in very good condition; there is some paint loss from the chassis below the rear of the cradle, and small paint rubs elsewhere. However, the erector mechanism does not work very well because the teeth on one of the gears are worn - some manual assistance is required! The rocket has very little wear and the rubber nose cone is in exceptionally good condition with no perishing. The firing mechanism still works; be careful, it has a very powerful spring! The model comes in its original Supertoys box which is in lovely condition with no splits, just a couple of tape marks and a small stain on one side. It is complete with the two internal packing pieces, instruction leaflet and 'tested by' tag.
