    The Huey Copter aka the Huey Cobra. This is a special version made for the S. S. Kresge company. I believe they were a 5 and Dime. Ah it turned into K-Mart eventually. This is something I have not run across before. The color scheme is the same as the regular Bachmann version but the regular version is a " Bell Uh-1B Iroquois Helicopter" instead of a "Huey Copter". Also the artwork on the back is different. Also the plastic insert which holds the model is different. All of this is very exciting I am sure but collectors like the rare variation thing.
    In addition this is a rather cool little model. Probably one of their better ones. Has the rocket pods and mini-gun.
    The 1:1 version began service in the Vietnam War and are still in service today with new improved versions.

      SS Kresge, loved going to that store here in Detroit. There was one in the 'Eastland' mall. That's where i used to get all my monster models from.

      Thank you very much Newfld.

      Thank you very much iggy. I think there is an antique mall that uses an Kresge building in Pomona.

      Thank you very much Watchsearcher. Yes a dual set of price tags!
