Marx Tin-litho Batt-Op F-86 Sabre

We've covered Sabers a number of times here on Toys and Stuff and today we have yet another. I won't go into the Saber history as that's been done here before but needless to say it was a very popular and famous warbird back in the day and it seemed as if nearly every toy maker produced at least one. This Marx version is the '50s version of a remote controlled toy. There is a battery compartment, which holds two D-cell batteries and attached by cord to the jet. Two buttons on the battery box allow the plane to go forwards or backwards. Not spectacular by today's standards but an awful lot of fun if you were a child of the Nifty '50s. I ended up with two of these. One has had the cord cut off so I used that one for the still photos. The other one is complete and fully functional. The jet measures 7' (17.8cm) L x 3" (7.6cm) H Enjoy! Opa Fritz and Oma Bettina
