20 series features
The 20 series or 20 "Export" series, also known as "Ready boxes", consists of 10 packs, measuring 35 x 19 x 1.5 cm, containing subjects in HO scale, with catalog numbers from 20 to 29.
Note that the same catalog numbers will also be used later for some Galaxy personages in the Shooting Series.
Of the 10 packs, 8 are related to the Modern armies (catalog number 20-27), 1 to the West history (catalog number 28) and 1 to the World War II armies (catalog number 29); the other packs are found within the respective sections.
Its production begins in March 1975 with the first 9 packs and ends in May 1975 with the start of production of packaging n. 29.
In the packs marketed it was not uncommon to find clusters of toy soldiers that did not correspond to the subjects of the pack.
The packs of the 20 series have 3 different background colors: red for the packages relating to the Modern armies, brown for the West history and black for the World War II armies.
On the front of the packages there is the Atlantic logo, the wording "Export", the name of the subject in four languages and the content.
The wording "Export" and the catalog number are printed on the side edges, while on the back there are any assembly instructions and images of the covers, more or less complete, of the other packs in the series.
