Marx Repo Military Flatcar Load - Troop Carrier Dark Blue HP

This is the last of the six repo military flatcar loads in dark blue that were made by Marx of Miami back in the '90s. I'll have to double check but I believe production carried over a few years into the Millenium prior to Marx of Miami shutting down. The repos are beginning to command premium prices as well now as Marx continues to be a popular brand among collectors. There are a few things I'd like you to take a way from this series: the colors of the repos are different than the originals, the casting quality is often poor, and the 'Marx' logo is missing from the underside of the vehicles (which is why a photo of the underside has been included in each post). I have some odds-and-ends of repos in different colors but I'm in no hurry to post those yet. However, there are a few more small plastic military vehicles that are waiting in the queue to be posted. Until then - Enjoy! Opa Fritz and Oma Bettina
