Dinky Toys 736, Bundersmarine Sea King Helicopter

This is a Dinky Toys No 736, German Navy Bundersmarine Sea King Helicopter. Slightly less well known than the Nasa Sea King also produced by Dinky, this model also came equipt with a winch operated by a dial on the side of the fuselage, this time lowering a plastic sonar device rather than collecting an Apollo Capsule. The Sea King also had a small motor which although not strong enough to start the main rotor, could keep it spinning if it was started by hand.
This model was produced between 1973 and 1978.
