A good week of cautious purchasing on ebay has brought home a toy I have been meaning to get for years. The Dinky Enterprise finally made it home to Mars this week in the shape of a loose, playworn example that I bought for under a fiver. It needs a little tlc, but the good thing is that I already had a set of photon torpedoes and the little orange Gallileo shuttle to complete it. Heres a quick shot of it as is, im hoping to repaint it soon and bring it back to its prime.
Off the starboard bow we have a nice pair of Glico spaceships, name unknown, that I also won this week. The green cruiser is just under 3" inches with moveable turrets, metal undercarriage and clearly marked Glico underneath. Very reminiscent of the Airfix Cosmic Clipper. I do love these small plastic spacecraft, takes me back to the good old days of Spacex.
