Juguetes Dinamicos de Mexico, S.A. #2859 Marx Mexico Spaceship Set - Pt 2 F-102 Delta Dagger

At first, the inclusion of the '50s era F-102 Delta Dagger in this set might seem a bit odd, but if you play the '50s Sc-Fi game of jets scrambling to intercept UFO's this could fit right. What doesn't fit in are those gaudy colors! oh brother! But hey, it's a nice toy nonetheless. The minimal markings are done via peel-&-stick appliques which, after so many years, are starting to come loose on my samples. Enjoy! Opa Fritz and Oma Bettina

I don't like it
