1500 series features


The 1500 series consists of 20 packets containing subjects in HO scale, of which 10 book packs, 19 x 24 x 2 cm in size, containing toy soldiers with catalog numbers from 1501 to 1503, from 1508 to 1511, from 1515 to 1517 and 10 packs, of different sizes, containing playsets (shown in the appropriate section), with catalog numbers from 1504 to 1507, from 1512 to 1514, from 1518 to 1520.

The packs containing playsets are larger:
1504 cm 37.5 x 24.5 x 7, 1505 cm 37 x 26 x 5.5, 1506 cm 54 x 27.5 x 6, 1507 cm 67 x 34 x 7, 1512 cm 37 x 26 x 5.5, 1513 cm 37 x 26 x 4.5, 1514 cm 67 x 34 x 7, 1518 and 1519 cm 46 x 30.5 x 2.5, 1520 cm 58 x 46 x 15.5.

Its production begins in November 1976 with the first 7 packs and ends in February 1978 with the start of the production of the last 6 packs.

In the 1500 series the three civilizations contained are distinguished with packages of three different colors: black for the Egyptians, brown for the Greeks and red for the Romans.

On the cover of the packages we find the image and the name of the subject in four languages, the H0 scale and the number of pieces contained.

On the cover of the packs containing toy soldiers it is also possible to find a sticker with which the Atlantic invited the children of the time to participate in the "play, learn, color and win" contest, while inside the same packs, which you can "browse" like a book, we find some pictures of the subjects contained paintings and a brief historical description of the contents of the package in four languages.

The catalog number, the H0 scale and the title of the packaging are shown on the side edges, while the Atlantic logo is shown on the upper and lower edges.

On the back of the packs we find the illustration of the contents and the cover images of the packs relating to the same civilization.

It should be noted that the same color distinctions of civilizations and cover images of the packs containing toy soldiers are also used in the 1600 series, 1800 series and 2500 series.
