Thanks in advance and thanks for looking at our listing! AIR FORCE BOMBER TOY AIRPLANE made sometime in the 1950’s. I bought this from the original owner who said he removed the very rear tire when he was a boy to make it look like it was “taking off”, LOL! Also because the real thing didn’t have the furthest rear wheel, so you’ll have to find a replacement which should be easy as its just a generic black wheel in a piece of folded tin. The canopy is missing as well as something hit it and cracked it in two according to the previous owner, and one propeller has had the blades broken off. The friction still works and still spins all the propellers-even the broken one, though the one furthest inboard on the broken propeller side only moves sometimes. The lithograph on this one is fantastic as you can see-there’s no rust that I can find anywhere on the toy and very few scratches/dings. He’s displayed it for the last 45 years according to him and it was never played with after he stopped playing with it, that’s why the incredibly nice condition as far as the litho. The colors are still bright and vivid as you can see. A nice one and a hard to find addition to any collection!! I LIKE LOOKING AT IT SO KEEPING IT WON’T BE A PROBLEM!!!
