Default Fantastic Transroc / Camroc Find

I recently turned up a boxful from the 60-70s. The deeper I dug, the better it got.
Not to mention sealed kits like a Farside X, Alpha III , Centuri Tomahawk to name a few, were these incredible Transrocs and accessories. There were 2 Transrocs, 2 Microphone and one Spin Rate Accessories.I already traded the built Transroc, but kept the rest. There were 2 sealed Camrocs and one Built one. The box contained stuff Iíve never seen. I will entertain trade offers. Still, just fun to share in great finds....

That's quite a find.

Nice find Danny! Those Camrocs look like they just came off the assembly line ready to hang up on a hobby shop's pegboard.

They spent some 45 years in a box. The felt inside is all messy like they do,, which is common,,, but still makes ya kinda mad. Still, thatís usually the case with themÖ.Like melted tar, etc.

What's the kit in the clear plastic bag (in Posting #1, in the fifth picture), with the crystal earphone (the kind often found in crystal radio kits)? It has too many--and different--parts (lots of disc capacitors) than what are used in crystal radio kits.

It is one of the Microphone Accessories. Thereís 2. One was opened. This is a sealed bag of the contents. Itís an earphone. I thought it was an old Hearing Aid. But itís for use in the field when an external speaker isnít being used. First one I ever saw. Very rare.
