IMAI CAPTAIN GREY AND SPECTRUM HELICOPTER ASSEMBLED

Woodsy
Here's the assembled Imai Captain Grey Kit not yet painted or having decals applied. The box artwork is the Helicopter but the model kit is of Captain Grey with a mini mini helicopter at his feet. This was the second series of eight figure kits. When they were released later in the 1980s there were only six figures as Captain Grey and Lieutenant Green were dropped from the range.

IMAI CAPTAIN GREY AND SPECTRUM HELICOPTER KIT



Hi Woodsy

This is the box for the second release of the eight IMAI Captain Scarlet figures and the helicopter goes with Captain Grey. So in the box is an 80mm tall kit of Captain Grey with a base that has a spring loaded small helicopter. To my knowledge this was the last release of Captain Grey and also Lieutenant Green. When the figure kits were released later in the 1980s there were only six from the original eight.


This is the spring loaded very small Spectrum Helicopter that is on the base of the Captain Grey figure kit. The box is shown behind and this is the second and final issue. The figure is around 80mm high so the helicopter is about 30mm long.

SEAVIEW UPDATE

Just a quick update on my Moebius Seaview.  Things are moving forward slowly with most of the parts now glued together.  The wiring for the navigation and tail lights are done. In fact, it's working with and checking the lights that slow things down because once the two halves of the sub are glued together there's no way of replacing anything.
