Really love this vintage box art. That's an Airfix-worthy action scene on the Hayate box. Still trying to figure out the spring-mounted pilot figure though. It`s the type of bizarre and fascinating thing that could only have come from 1960s Japan. Pretty cool.

Thanks guys. I think the spring-mounted pilot was to be some short of dashboard or desk accessory.
