I've wanted to do this for ages.
To bring together the only two die-cast Project SWORD toys.
They are the Aoshima Zero-X and the Imai Scramble Bug.
Luckily I've got both so lets introduce them.
The Aoshima Zero-X is well packaged in a polystyrene inner box
Inside a plastic cover, the Imai Scramble Bug comes in a nice card inner display
Under the card base is a colour leaflet
The rear of the box display has a colour diagram of the vehicle.
The leaflet showcases five of Imai's miniatures.
So, lets get them together.
My Zero-X lacks the MEV [it was donated to MC] but does have the silver nose cover.
With similar blue bodies I think they look great as a pair
The Zero-X comes with a small plastic stand
Even the Scramble Bug gets a lift!
I did find opening the landing gear on the undercarraige quite fiddley but all in all the OX is a beautiful die-cast toy.
I do wish I had the MEV but in the meantime my Bug carries the silver nose-cone quite well.
I also discovered that the Bug has a push-down dome, which raises the bonnet! I didn't know that!
One final shot as the OX takes off on a secret mission.
Have you got either of these die-casts readers?
Some Tri-ang SpaceX toys, which are miniatures of Project SWORD vehicles, also have some die-cast parts.
