This vintage airplane is reminiscent of stamped steel toys like those produced by Wyandotte, Hubley and Dent. This pressed steel toy airplane is in the style of a Navy folding low-wing fighter. I could not find this plane in any of my reference books, but in my opinion it looks to fall into the period of toys dating in the 1920-1930’s.
The overall wingspan has a measurement of 9 inches and the length of the airplane is 6 inches. Painted both inside and out with two-tone paint job – red body and blue wingtips. There are six cut out windows and this airplane sports a four blade propeller with the three (3) landing wheels being made of wood. The tail configuration is a twin vertical tails.
I have done quite a bit of research trying to locate the manufacture and age of this toy, however, so far have struck out. If you have any information about this airplane please let me know so I can update this post for the benefit of my readers . . . thank you.
