Shadowtrak variant part

Postby OllyOrc » 06 Jul 2020 22:13

Whilst researching the shadowtrak prototype that Newswseller kindly sold me awhile back, featured in the link below ->

I noticed a new variant (not mentioned on BFTB as far as I could search for), as there are 2 different production Shadowtrak tow hooks.

The English/French window box version that has an angled end and the Spanish window box version (Sombre Rojo) that is square ended like the prototype & box pictures.

Early days of investigation and would love to verify more windows & picture boxes. French picture box says Vuitre and figure/parts bagged separately and Spanish picture says Buitre with everything bagged together, as looks like later picture box releases both used the newer angled version.

Long shot but I found what looks like a 7x marked on the bottom of the square end tow hook which reminded me of the mark inside the Shadowtrak prototype
