This is my big purchase from the Rose Bowl Flea Market. It is not only a Marx Cape Kennedy Carry-All Playset but two Marx Cape Kennedy Carry-All Playset. Neither one is complete but makes a good display. Actually I think I need 3 pieces to make one complete and then there are duplicate pieces.
These fold up like a suitcase so you can take them over to your friend's house. They are tin litho so they are durable. Check You Tube to see the commercial with Peter Brady.
Marx made four different sets, Fort Apache, Knights and Vikings, Boot Camp and this one. They fold out to about 30"x19".
On this set the scales are all over the place but each piece is correct in scale within itself. That is important for a realistic toy.
Now for part 2 coming right up.
