Lewis Gun and magazine
Lewis gun connecting clip
The D.U.K.W. (commonly called / pronounced 'Duck') launched in 1978 Equipment Manual was a vehicle designed for Action Man, in unconventional shades of blue. Rival company Cherilea stole a march on it with a more authentic olive green version. The choice of colour by Palitoy remains is an enigma. The number plate was 03-AM-78 - denoting the year. They are not too common, and usually suffer from broken or missing windsheilds, and stickers which were not elaborate, nor waterproof. The name 'DUKW' is an acronym of sorts made up of Military code for build of vehicle. D denoted 1942, U denoted utility (amphibious in this case), K stands for all-wheel drive, W denotes 2 powered rear axles.
This amphibious six-wheeler vehcile is fairly robust - not too many are broken beyond practical use although the stickers are prone to spoiling (buy repro stickers here). It should come with a Lewiss gun with special clip and windscreens. The box gave seven stars to save against other gifts.
