Nasta Flash Gordon Spaceship

Here's a nifty spaceship I picked up a couple years back in less than - actually far less than - perfect condition. Nasta produced a couple of nice Flash Gordon related spaceships, this being one of them. It is pretty much a direct clone of Irwin Allen's Spindrift sub-orbital spaceship from his TV series Land of The Giants and repurposed to serve Flash.

Basically my example is kind of a wreck. However the fuselage was in good shape and it displayed well. There should be a clear plastic dome on the top front of the fuselage under which a lit bulb would have shown but the dome is missing. The real mess is the chassis which contains the motor and battery box. The battery box is corroded, the light mount is broken, and the chassis supports are busted to the point where the chassis doesn't sit right on the fuselage body. It measures 7" (2.54cm) L x 4 1/4" (10.79cm) W x 2 1/4" (5.71cm) H. Enjoy! Opa Fritz and Oma Bettina

Don't know if the wheels should sit up this high or not. It was easier to photograph with the chassis kind of pushed up into the fuselage

From here the chassis doesn't look bad, but take it out and it's not pretty :-)
