RED BOX SPECIAL AGENT 707's WEAPON SET ATTACHE CASE (UPDATED)...
A couple of posts back, I showed you the JAMES BOND 007 secret agent set and mentioned the RED BOX 707 knock-off - well, here it is. As I said, not exactly the same as the LONE STAR set, but not without its own appeal. Incidentally, I still have the box for this - saw it just a few weeks back, but have now forgotten where I put it. When I discover it again, I'll scan it and add it to this post. (Update: Now done.) Apparently this set first appeared in the 1960s, but I bought this one in the late '80s or early '90s - from ARGOS of all places. I think it's a superb wee set, and am gutted that I'm now too old to play with it. Mind you, that can be said for a lot of things about me these days. (Just remember, you're responsible for your own innuendo.)
And below is the version from the 1960s. Did you have either of these sets when you were a kid? Tell all.
And as promised, here's the box for the one I have. Don't you wish you owned this great Special Agent Set? Betcha do!
