    I posted the metal carrying case for this a ways back, it is on the right in the first photo. I wasn't going to buy it by the seller bundled it with the Erector set I posted last week.
    This microscope is lighted but the Christmas tree light burned out as soon as I plugged it in. This set is circa 1961 according to my earlier research.
    I had planned to switch out the cases but the one with better front is missing the latch. I guess I will put the mini-tanks back in it.

      I always wanted one of these when I was a kid. I remember my cousins got one for Christmas and we thought it was the coolest!! I still do today. Great find!

      And so from humble roots, the Manhattan Project was born. And the people looked on and said, I'm not so sure this is such a good f**king idea ! LOL !

      And the Lord did grin and the people feast upon the lamb, wombats and breakfast cereals.

      These were so pool Fort! As a kid, I remember pulling pieces of bugs apart to look at them under the microscope.
      I know, I know... I was a bad kid ; )
