Default 1967 Captain Scarlet playsuit

hi everyone - thought you Scarlet fans might be interested in this - just arrived today

its the box for the playsuit - I've already got the suit so I've now put them together and they are very happy

it could do with an iron and its got some so-so repair work on the inside but its generally pretty fab - huge too, like 14 inches high

cheers
Mike

Is that the one that goes with the vinyl cap and the metal fold down mic?

hi indeed it is

amazingly I've now got both boxes ie this and the mail-away all red one

plus I have one complete suit apart from the gun belt and a spare tunic and cap

give me 5 years trawling ebay and I reckon I can muster 2 complete suits

It's interesting to see. I used to have this outfit but I don't remember the box.

I didn't think the cap was available until I saw one recently on ebay, so I'm sure the tunic would become available although it would have to be via a collector 'cos the material was flimsy and wouldn't last for long with normal wear and tear.
