Haji Mansei Toys #FU-881 F-86D Sabre

Being a child of the '50s I'm constantly torn between tin-litho and plastic. As collectibles I like them both but clearly tin-litho is the most colorful of the two mediums and one I'm drawn to probably a little more. The tin-litho Cold War arsenal wouldn't be complete without a colorful jet like this in the hangar and what a nice example of '50s/'60s toymaking it is. Measuring 5 3/8" (13.7cm) L x 4 7/8" (12.4cm) wingspan x 2 1/4" 5.7cm) H, it follows the standard convention of having a detachable wing on which the friction motor is mounted. Enjoy!
