Often it is difficult to date an item but sometimes it is easy. Typed Erector no. 10042 into google about 1000 results of 1959. Good enough for me.
Anyway this the Gilbert Erector Set No. 10042 the Automatic Radar-Scope Set. It seems to be complete. I should be able to check it out in 2036. I think I have a few too many projects in the queue. Looks like it has many fun pieces and all the paperwork. The cover is in excellent shape with good artwork plus it comes in a high quality metal carrying case. Good thing as the contents are very heavy.
