Castaway Toys Flash Gordon Space Ship

We're not through with Flash yet folks. While in the midst of doing the Premier Plastics series on Flash Gordon spaeships I had come across a company I'd never heard of - Castaway Toys - while doing eBay searches. It was quite a surprise to see this diminutive version of the classic ship being offered. The toy is rather small at 3 1/4" (8.3cm) L x 1 3/4" (4.4cm) W x 1 1/8" (2.9cm) H.but fits in well with other smallish space toys like the old Tootsie Toy Buck Rogers ships or the Hot Wheels or Matchbox series of space vehicles. It appears to be carved from wood and may even be made by the same Philippine artisans who create the much large sized wood models.In any case it's a cool addition to the space fleet. Enjoy!
