Eagle Freighter (Product Enterprise)

February 2005

Although Dinky had a freighter Eagle, this pod was referred to in the series as the "cargo Eagle". This is a fair representation, with one obvious problem: the winch drums are dark grey. The reason is that it was copied from pictures of a Phil Rae replica. Phil built his replica on an original pallet, and deliberately used a dark colour to indicate it was a replica. The pod is attached by hooks to the top spine, rather than the latch used for other pods.

The box still has art and text for "Eagle Transporter", only replacing one piece of text to "Special Edition Eagle Freighter". Although the model itself has a credit to Granada Ventures, the packaging still credits Carlton.
