Unknown Tiny Bomber - Green SP

I'm still workin' on that box of tiny planes I pulled out of The Cave last month :-) There has been progress in the de-acquisition of the collection though. Many bags of old magazines have gone to a local thrift store, some of my artwork has gone to a local auction house (for which we got practically nothing - but hey, it's more stuff out of the house), my eBay sales (seller: marxtoynut) are slowly-but-surely doing okay, and I've begun to sell stuff via the on-line groups I belong to. There are ever-so- slowly widening gaps in the shelves and in the mountains of boxes out in The Cave and the goal is to get at least one of my portable train layouts up and running this year.

Here's an unusual small green soft plastic bomber by an unknown manufacturer measuring 3 1/4" (8.25cm) L 4 1/8" (10.47cm) wingspan x 3/4" (1.90cm) H. The bump-out on the spine and the outline of the vertical tail is reminiscent of the B-17 yet it only has two engines. It's obviously a cheap toy meant for party favors? as a bin toy? as a cheap toy for souvenir stalls? In any case it's a nice little plane for the Tiny Squadron. Enjoy! Opa Fritz and Oma Bettina

Here it shown with the VIBRO ROLL B-17 for size comparison
