other angle, definatley something there
 
Mike,

From your first shot, I'd say it was < ABS >. If it is, we are looking for a plastic handle from something, made from Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene. Depending on the scale of the model, this may be something as simple as a plastic fork from the canteen, to something much larger.

Sorry if this has actually widend the field for you to look in.

Gary.

I think it's much more likely to be a trade name of the product or a brand rather than what it's made from. I'm not convinced it's an 'S' anyway.

Ive been looking at old toys Ive got but nothing yet :(

dont think its an important piece, but as ever, if we know what it is, it can always give clues to other mystery parts used elsewhere

Silver part

Hi Guys,

Mike Delamar (CSI) at it again? :yes:

Is it a logo for Abbey (something) The silver item is the lid and the red part it is resting on is the box itself I would say as they have a very similar corner radius.

The < part is from a scroll that forms part of the logo (like a fluttering flag, ribbon or parchment scroll) embossed into the lid.

Well that's what I see anyway. :think:

maybe it was put there as it could be because the rocket platform tilts, so maybe its part of a hinge?



the platform base has dissapeared in this shot...

I had a look at lead and came up with this:


Maybe it is just a strip of lead/solder bar to weigh it down while it fired the barrels.

the aurora b-58 wings has letters moulded on the inside which look similar but not the same letters, I wonder if any other of theyre kits did

looking at the hd screengrabs again.

its looks like there is a black part with a little piece sticking out behind the chrome revell wheel on the headlights. perhaps something to do with the bulb? a holder perhaps????

there is a rectangular piece with some distintive features underneath also.

and a tiny part on the right hand side looks like part of the undercarrage detail from the aurora 5/32 B-58 hustler kit?
