Ideal Radar Trailer - SP

Ideal made three different trailers to go with its truck: this radar trailer, a rocket launching trailer, and a searchlight trailer. There is a slight difference in the trailer body with some having no front wheels, as in today's example, while others had a front set of wheels. Some were made in the flexible soft plastic while later versions were made in a stiffer plastic. All three shared the same control panel at the rear of the trailer and all three have rotating platforms on which the equipment is molded. This trailer measures 4 1/2" (11.43cm) L x  1 5/8" (4.12cm) W x 2 1/2" (6.35cm) H.  Oh, and they have one more thing in common - they're a BEAR to clean. It's gonna take more scrubbin' than I care to do right now to get these looking really good. But then, the dirt gives them that 'played with' look I remember my toys having as a kid :-) Enjoy!
