93 cm long Eagle assembled from die cut printed cardboard & drinking straws. Angular parts seem very accurate although rounded parts such as the beak become angular too.

US, UK and Portugal 1976. Made in Hong Kong.

A water gun, mostly made of white plastic (imprinted like framework), with a green Eagle nose cone are the barrel end, red "rockets" at the rear, and green side pods.

There was a variation with a yellow body (the logo in white, not red). The toy was later marketed in Ahi's "Arm's Master" series, dropping the 1999 logo.

Blister pack with colourful art card of an Eagle including photos of Koenig and Bergman.

EAGLE PARA-JET (Helm Toys)

USA 1976

"No Batteries- No Winding", "Trigger releases projectile", "Parachute safely lands Commander Koenig"
An interesting toy Eagle. The body is cast from a Dinky Eagle but very much wider than normal as it had a handle fitted beneath it and a figure (head and shoulders of an astronaut) on the top. The figure was fired into the air, then descended using its parachute. As with the Dinky Eagle, the nose and side pods were green, the engines were red, but the body was yellow.
