This week I dusted off my T* boat fleet for a quick cruise round the Moonbase attic before Wote arrives in early August. Seeing my plastic Dolphin Cruiser, shown below, reminded me of the Corgi version I recently saw on Ebay pictured above. The Corgi version is dated 1965, which I feel certain is much earlier than my larger T version. T may have indeed copied Corgi. Has anyone else got any Dolphin Cruisers, even a real one?
* T refers to Sixties plastic Hong Kong-made toys branded with a T in a Circle. Their correct trading name was Tai Hing Plastics. They're of interest to SWORD collectors like me [and hence the blog] because they made the original Moon Bus, on which the C21 version is based, and a Moon Prospector, both beautifully boxed.
