    Iraqi Aquired - JEP KIT Army Set

    Post by MyZone on Tue Jun 18, 2013 3:20 pm

    Well you guys figured out by now that I turn up some decent kit every once in awhile. On the other side of the coin, I buy off the wall stuff too. Why ? I don't know....

    This item was interesting to me. Story goes....A lady sold this to me; she states here husband picked it up in 2003 Iraq. Their now grown son never even opened it.



    Looks like an erector set. It looks like it is motorized in some fashion. The manual is written mostly in Arabic. The tag on the plastic (last photo) looks like Korean letters - maybe made in Korea. No copyright or manufacture dates inside the manual or outside of box.

    I had a similar Italian made set in the early 60s when I was about 10...

    It was called Meccano...

    I think it is kind of cool, would look neat as part of a display.

    Notice the version of the Iraqi flag on the model. Based on that, one can deduce this is pre 1991.
