Premier Plastics & Knock-off Flash Gordon Space Ships - Pt 21 CONCLUSION Pt 3

You understand that I never meant to have a 3-part conclusion to the Premier Plastics Flash Gordon series which ran from April until August but when a couple of new variations came my way it just couldn't be helped. Two weeks ago Toys & Stuff presented a 3" soft plastic Dart, well today we're featuring a 3" soft plastic Wide Body (Dart and Wide Body are my designations for the two basic body types). Both are the same mint green both have a tube or bushing underneath the fuselage which appears to me as if a rod of some kind was meant to attach there. Were they part of a set or display??? For now I'm content to just identify, and present to you, additional variations. Here's the basics:

3” Wide Body’s v.3
- Soft plastic
- Knock off
- 5 windows behind cockpit
- 3 tall struts in place of wheels in tricycle landing gear arrangement
- No number underneath fuselage
- Hollow tube or bushing beneath roof
