1940s Wood Composition Bomb Shaped Airplane Belt Drive Prop
Out of stock
Bullet or bomb shaped airplane from the 1940s. This plane is not marked anywhere so am not clear who manufactured it. We were told it was manufactured during WWII which would makes sense since they were saving metal at the time for war efforts. For lack of a better word it is of "composition" construction. Almost feels like a fiberous thick cardboard. The wings and tail are constructed thin wood but not as thin as balsa. The canopy, brace, wheel carrier are tin. Hard rubber tires. It has a belt drive propeller but the belt is missing. The prop spins freely, and the pulley inside the plane is present so it would probably be any easy fix. Very good color. The rear wheel is missing. The wings and tail are a little loose but they stay put. I have yet to see another like this. Nice size at 15 inches.
