Paint Colors and Variations:
In general, the Snorkel is harder to find intact than some of the other Heavyweights.
the enamel white truck is especially prone to "crumbling".
Other versions of same Casting:
As with most of the heavyweights, the plastic Snorkel attachment is interchangeable with the base.
The Snorkel is one of four Heavyweights models that utilize the short base truck.

As mentioned the plastic parts have been accurately reproduced. I am not aware of any markings to
the repro vs original. The originals do tend to have a yellow age related tint, not seen
the fresh white reproductions.
