‘ZERO-X’ DIECAST MODEL (Thunderbirds & Captain Scarlet) Aoshima (2006)

Out of stock

£249.00

This stunning diecast model of the ‘Zero-X Solar System Exploration Spaceship’ was produced in 2006 by Aoshima of Japan. The Zero-X spacecraft appeared in the 1966 ‘Thunderbirds Are Go’ feature film, and also featured in the very first episode of Gerry Anderson’s ‘Captain Scarlet’ TV series. Aoshima only produced the diecast version of this model in limited numbers and they are now very collectable.

The model comes from a private collection and is in ‘as new’ condition. There is a small factory re-touch on the white band around the bottom of the tail fin (see photos) but it is a very small area and is only noticeable on very close inspection.

The model comes with the original packaging and literature. The leaflets are still sealed.
