God luck Walter hope you get it. I want to get the assault heli some time and a boxed one would be really fab. I had one as a kid with the winch and also the rotating blades and I agree i think it's one of the beat AM vehicles.

One thing to note. The ones that come up on eBay often have broken skids or missing tail pieces. Ghost Recons (Ade's) was invert good condition like this one seems to be. Let us know if you win it mate.

Thanks Mark...I hope that you can get what you want soon...I remember when I got my GI Joe Search For The Stolen Idol back in the early Seventies...Man Christmas was really cool back then..I wrote the seller tonight...There are two flaws with the copter...The black blade rotor is held together with twist ties.I can't see it in the pic..He said that it has something to do with the hub tension springs...Sounds like an easy fix...I hope...The other is a broken tab on the body bottom...I don't mind that...Bid is at $51 five days to go...Fingers Crossed.....Walter

Looks good Walter; and ... the tail is complete.

If I'm allowed to give some advice :
Ask a pic from
-the bottom : there should be a whinch and hook + the landing base is not always complete !
-the inside : is display sticker and lever present ?
-windowscreen : no parts broken of ?
