THE GREEN HORNET'S BLACK BEAUTY







The green hornet's Black Beauty was another beauty from the Corgi stable, finished in gloss black with a green hornet on the vinyl-effect roof. The model featured a flying tracking probe released from the boot and a firing missile concealed behind the hinged radiator grille. Figures of Kato (driving) and the Green Hornet (firing a pistol) were aloso included. The actual car as used in the TV series as based on a 1966 Chrysler Imperial riding a 129 inch wheel base (axle to axle), making the model around 1/36 scale. After a five year run, this excellent model was deleted, though it is still much sought after due to the series attaining cult status world wide. Buy it now
