Thomas Toy P-40 Warhawk

Here's another small airplane from Thomas Toy in the same vein as the Boulton Paul Defiant we featured yesterday. It's obvious that this P-40 Warhawk is from the same series but, as the original's made in the '50s had rotating props and wheels I wonder if Thomas Toy reissued these perhaps in the '60s or '70s using modified molds to make them with less parts, thereby cutting manufacturing costs. Just like the Defiant, this plane measures 3 3/4" (9.52cm) L x 4 1/4" (10.79cm) wingspan x 1 1/2" (3.81cm) H. Enjoy! Opa Fritz and Oma Bettina
