Does anyone have either of these in their collection? Manufacturer? Box?

As always, photo posting assistance greatly appreciated! Thanks.

The Topsy Turvy is well known in Germany. It is from a series of four similar space vehicles made by GAMA in 1969.
In german Topsy Turvey was called DELTA 8. Gama gave to it item number 3600. Pics to follow.

The crane in the catalogue was also made by Gama, the cabin was by famous german company Lehmann = EPL

And here's the box for the Shangri-La City Monorail set:

Time Warp Toys claims it's by Tomy.

Here's the Database entry for the GAMA 3600:

I wonder if the box artwork was changed when it was sold through Neiman Marcus?

GAMAīs item No.3600 Topsy Turvy aka Delta 8 and the nameless space crawler vehicle with No. 3560 used the same box.
Although I donīt own the Delta 8 Iīm able to show box with the space crawler.
