The "Thunderbird 2", "2" & "T2" are transfers. The yellow detail is paint.

The small wheel at the front can be used to steer the toy.

The legs merely fold out. If they are broken near the top - the plastic - don't consider buying the toy. They are nigh on impossible to replace or mend.

The plastic on this version is white.

These insert into the side of the toy. They are held in place by the 3 small ridges. Excessive use causes the ridges to erode.

In the Empire version it's a jeep. Red or green. Anything else & it's not right. The Mole did not come with this version of the toy.
