I've just been looking at these old American catalogue adverts I have in my archive of Golden Astronaut. The above one, which I believe is from 1969, features what appears to be a light coloured Tri-ang SpaceX Forklift 7, when it clearly states in the Launch Site Set that the model is the Lift Loader.
Below we have another advert for the US toy line but this time the dark blue Liftloader. I think the same case can be made for Tractor T5 too. Maybe even the MEV2 but the names on the toys are hard to read.
Is this just a timing issue where Multiple only had Tri-ang toys to hand at the start?
Its interesting to note that the colour advert includes the blue version of the Nuclear Pulse and the yellow version of Space Patrol 1. Where these available outside of America? Indeed was Golden Astronaut available in the same markets as Tri-ang SpaceX?
