    Scratch built I envisioned these as post war toys for kids. Batteries are for prop and machine guns. I bought a cheap sound kit, don't care for the sound. These things are not fixable. They took at least 2 years to build. The barn swallow, I used for the pilot's insignia, the most graceful and beautiful birds ever. I showed the speaker grill s and battery comparts too. I wish I had cleaned them up but I didn't. The red button is "fire", The lever on the back is the prop.

    I've toy built many WW1 models also, they are quite a bit easier, all angle, no curves or filets. A Northrup Gamma was a huge pain

    The Battle of Britain Playset, It just needs a fancy box.
    I used to collect tin toys, mainly reproduction, Schuco, Paya , many no name Chinese toys. These planes were made out of scrap non corrugated tin cans. I used the plane proflies to use a central brass tube to solder the outside panels to.

    Today you'd have lawsuits all over the place from kids poking their eyes out. Anyone remember when we had dangerous toys?
