Back in October 2009 reader Ferryman flagged up a gasket mystery relating to a strange card template inside the New Flying Saucer at the bottom of the above picture. The gasket was sort of cat faced and pictured a speedboat in blue, black and white. The identity of this has remained a mystery.....
Until now! I was recently lucky enough to acquire a new T boat, the Dolphin Cruiser and lo and behold, the box art includes, you've guessed it, the blue, black and white speedboat picture on two sides! Mystery solved.
Below you can see the two pictures close up.
Did these card gaskets appear inside all three types of New Flying Saucer: T, JR21 and the German Welt Erkunder?
