Re: Palitoy & AF Codes (more geekery)

Was thankful to get these battered boxes for £40, as I noticed the Panther's blueprints were an even newer variant. The plans show how to assemble the jeep due to it needing to fit inside the new style picture card box. On closer inspection of the blueprints, its Line number is L1484 which falls bet...

Re: Palitoy & AF Codes (more geekery)

I'm guessing that the first vehicle wave, such as the Tank & Swordfish were made in England & France and have no number on the inside of the boxes. Then production was stopped in France for the later waves like ATC, Silent Attack & Hawk, that do have numbers on the inside of the box but France scrib...

Re: AF Ground Assault Prototype

I would say the first shot Ground Assault would easily be £30 or more and while we are discussing silly money, who is t***b( 4718) as always raises the bids on every Roboskull and battles against his arch rival s***m (935).
