    It would be 1990/91 I think if anyone had the brochures.

    I got a size 6 box in that last lot of gear, but the rectangular size 6 produced at Sanquhar , don't think it had a tray............but could be wrong......... unfortunately the few bits in it were empty dummies or had been emptied............including the ever elusive wheel which was an original factory dummy example......
    I've also got same box in a set of 6 brocks Factory made dummy boxes all complete with original factory made dummy items....see below

    Got the brocks size 3 box with the blue tray with the
    bazooka airbomb, just a shame all but three of the items have
    been emptied but still a nice box all the same.

    Yes, thats the exact one tony, unfortunately someone decided to
    empty almost all the items, I’m concentrating more on the single items now,
    rockets and larger single items are mostly my interest.

    English equivilant to bottle rockets. American items woukd usually be much skinnier and end with a small report. Mini rockets tended to be a bit fatter and rarely went bang. Usually just whoosh or whistle.

    Depends what you like. I prefer any rocket without a bang than those that do. Traditional rockets never went "bang". Shells went "bang". Rockets werw always very graceful. Unlike today's flash, bang, wallop same old same old boring bolloxy rockets. Though, that's what sells so...

    Give me a large, golden tailed motor with high soaring lift and gentle bouquet of long lasting glitter any day of the week and you can keep all this chinese crap.

    Slightly later version after the mini rockets were removed from sale.....and some Standard influence. Spot the shrunken Bazooka (using a Standard tube) and Roman candles. I suspect they were using up whatever was lying around before moving production completely to Huddersfield.

    No pictures of the trays but here are 90,91 and 92. (no real differences). 92 has the additional box bottom right.
