Nice " Catch" aeroengineer!

Thank you!

Btw, where can I find more information about this model? I believe there is only one production variant (same hands, colors and etc). But what about production dates and is there any chance to find the date by serial number? Mine for instance has # 5301XX. How many were produced ever?

Thank you!

May I suggest you might want to try reading through the preceding 6 pages ? :P

And this thread, which would have told you, from its 53xxxx prefix serial number, that your example was manufactured in March 1985.


There was another 7A48-7050 Fishing Master listed on Yahoo Japan last weekend, which I hadn't managed to find time to post about before. It was a 7-day auction listing with an opening bid price of 1000 Yen.

Google translates the relevant part of the seller's formatted description as follows:



So perhaps not in quite such good condition as some of the previous examples documented in this thread. The 7-day auction ended early this afternoon (UK time) with the 7A48-7050 Fishing Master selling for ¥46,603 Yen after 34 bids. That's equivalent to approx. $425.40 USD / £322.60 GBP.

There was another 7A48-7050 Fishing Master listed on Yahoo Japan in the last week of February, by a 'Store' seller, as a 3-day auction, with an opening bid price of 40,000 Yen (+ 8% Japanese Sales Tax), making 43,200. I'd intended to post it at the time I took the screen prints and saved the photos, but simply ran out of time.

Google translates the Japanese seller's formatted description as follows:



Anyway, transpires it made no difference that I was late posting about it. It didn't sell first time around and has been re-listed with the same YJ item number.

The above re-listed Yahoo Japan auction for a 7A48-7050 Fishing Master ended a few moments ago, selling for the opening bid price of ¥40,000 Yen + 8% Japanese Sales Tax, making ¥43,200 Yen, equivalent to approx. $386.20 USD / £292.60 GBP. Judging by the high feedback number of the encrypted winning bidder ID, it was purchased by an international buyer, using one of the proxy bidding services.
