Astronit kindly sent in this picture for us to drool over!
They are what we know as the Nova rockets but these are made by Durham and not Tarheel. They are also blister carded as opposed to the usual boxes of the Tarheel range.
These three Novas really are lovely.
Years ago I became interested in the possible relationship between Durham and Tarheel http://projectswordtoys.blogspot.co.uk/2009/12/durham-and-tarheel-toys.html
and the theory was enhanced by the discovery of a Durham Space Glider from the Project SWORD range, a range we usually associate with Tarheel in America.
Have you any Durham toys?
