« on: April 01, 2010, 15:56:14 »
we were talking about this when i registered to the site the 3055 ,3740 ship
 http://www.collectobil.com/images/items/3055.jpg  i was asking if there are any differences between the two numbers they said that it is the same set made in germany  and the same quality only the 3055 code was for the us and 3740 the world. i bought the 3055 from ebay new in the box it is arrived today .the boat instead of white is grey :( :( :( :(  ? i had 3740 bought it at that time as a child and the boat was as it is shown white is there any explanations for it?

The Plastic may have degenerated with time, or it may just be dirty.  First give iot a good wash with warm soapy water, then  check the How-to section for tips on how to restore your ship's hull to pristine whiteness.

Hi Playmo1989,

 Both sets 3055 and 3740 are almost the same, both where made in Germany but the cannons where different.
 To comply with safety regs in the USA, the cannons had to be non firing so sets bound for the USA had a different set number.

 I have just gone to check my MISB 3740 and it was made in Spain it's not a brilliant white but an off white more to the grey side.

Perhaps, if others had been made in Germany there could be a slight difference in colour between the 2 factory's?

Since i bought it in the UK i believe that it was made in germany...the box was lost in the flood so i cannot say with certainty...i cannot recall if the cannons shoot though...i'll see to it tomorrow and take a few pictures....hang in there alexi...until then ;)
