              I recall playing a board game called Ski Run in the mid 70s.
              purchased the toy 3 years ago for nostalgic reasons.

                  Got one of these xmas 76. My Action Man phase lasted about 6 months. Again this is the Cherilea 'unofficial' or 'spurious' Sheridan tank model as opposed to the inferior Palitoy Scorpion tank.

                      My dream also but havent the money. Although i hear they were fairly unreliable ( Rover engines?) Wouldnt put me off though even if it were true.

                        Nah, lotus engine, bought it 17 years ago when they were dirt cheap, being a mechanic helps as it gets regular maintenance/ tinkering

                            I had the spurious jeep, I remember the windscreen was harder plastic and didn’t last 5 minutes , my mate had the motorcycle/sidecar we would play for hours with them and for some reason , they were all called “Jim”

                                Missus had this HAVOC doll given to her circa 1976. This aint no Barbie. Just goes to show that girl power existed even in the seventies.
