PUSHING TIN: United Boeing 727, Unknown Japanese Manufacturer

The Boeing 727 was a popular mid-size airliner with over 1800 produced from 1963 to 1984 and its popularity is reflected in the toy world as well. This ubiquitous aircraft is everywhere, and this is the fourth posting of a toy 727 on Toys & Stuff. Here's the other three and you can see how each manufacturer treats the subject:
-TT (Takatoku Toys) (Japan) Boeing 727 Pan Am Jetliner
-Marx American Airlines 727 Astro Jet
-Japan 'A' - Boeing 727 TWA

The manufacturer of the toy featured today is unknown, but as it is stamped 'MADE IN JAPAN' I'm assuming it was ummm made in Japan LOL. Okay, nuff kiddin' around - the jets overall design and 'look' are quite similar to the military cargo plane featured just a couple weeks ago on Sep 10th. It measures 11 1/2" (29.2cm) L x 11" (27.9cm) wingspan x 3 1/2" (8.9cm) H. Enjoy!
