While our main computer is still out for repairs (actually I did bring it back home and it began acting up again so I took it back to get re-checked), I decided to cull some more photos from the laptop. Actually we have everything backed up on an external hard drive but I don't feel like messin' with that right now.
This little gem from Matchbox makes the perfect companion piece to many a space toy, which you'll see in the last photo. With its opening side door, rotating satellite (or radar) dish, and no-nonsense NASA graphics it's a fine little addition to any space collection. Enjoy! Opa Fritz and Oma Bettina
The Hardee's Apollo 13 rocket stands about 14" (35.56cm) H and the Matchbox Tracking Vehicle looks fairly decent alongside it.
