Since purchasing the Dinky hovercraft diecast; I've been on something of a hovercraft kick. To that end I picked up the 1974 Matchbox Lesney version of the SRN6. It's about 1/3 smaller than its Dinky cousin, but posesses an identical mechanism that rotates the radar aerial and engine prop. No opening hatches though. I do like the blue and white colour scheme it's sporting. This toy was part of the Matchbox Super Kings lineup making it roughly twice the size of a standard Matchbox diecast. It's nice, but feels somewhat less robust in terms of construction when compared to the Dinky model. I'll let the photos do the real talking. Enjoy!
