That's a lovely piece simplistic plastic you have there, Terranova47. Pardon the unavoidable pun, but it would certainly float my boat as a beautiful collectible toy. It reminds me of the airfix H0/00 landing craft and the vintage MPC Jungle Queen. Stunning! I wonder when and where it was produced? :)
Manaplas SA is from Argentina. I think I have owned it for 10 years. It may be from US moulds as companies in that country reissue Marx figures and Britains Swoppets. I sent the images to Woodsy when he posted his car ferry and aircraft carrier.
Correction: Venezuela not Argentina
Thanks for the info :)
What a blast from the past! I had this but in red and white. Not sure exactly what happened to it and when but the last bits I had were some of the railing and gates and the ramps (blue on yours, mine had white) for the cars to board/unboard. I had a lot of boats when I lived in Michigan and my fleet was seriously downsized for the trip to Texas.
Did you sail your fleet on Lake Michigan Lance? That was a big move, Michigan to Texas! Must be thousands of miles!
