There’s a very similar yellow version of a toy like this on the Spanish auction site Todocollecion. Are they related? https://www.todocoleccion.net/coches-a-escala/rara-nave-metal-battlestar-galactica-comando-g-ulises-31-anos-finales-70-9-centimetros-cab~x224101012
Thanks Paul. Very interesting! It looks similar, right date of manufacture and similar length. I will investigate further. Cheers Kevin
Hi Kevin, here’s a Spanish article [in English] about the die-cast Angel Interceptor and other toys in the same line, Paul https://toysfromthepast.blogspot.com/2013/06/unknownspanishspaceshipsfromthe80sdiecast.html
Hi Kevin, just found this Spanish toy, one of the Spanish die-cast series the Interceptor is part of, in its bare brown metal form, a lot like the Interceptor prototype! https://en.todocoleccion.net/model-cars-other-scales/nave-metal-anos-70-creo-comando-g-o-similar-sin-marca-8-cms-largo~x180899840
