K-Line Airlines - Airplanes in Review #K-4021 Airport Planes

Found some more airplane photos I don't think I've posted before. I was very big into collecting Marxville plastic buildings - the ones made for their O-gauge trains. Then Marx went belly up and K-Line acquired much of the tooling for those old buildings. When K-Line released their version of the airport they included a different series of planes than Marx did. Marx included only one aircraft - the DeHavilland Comet - in USAF markings!  K-Line included smaller aircraft that Marx previously sold as bin toys and not as part of their Marxville airport. The K-Line re-release included three different aircraft randomly picked from an assortment of seven (I believe seven different aircraft were all that K-Line produced). I'm gonna post two aircraft a day over the next several days and these photos were taken 10 years ago! I don't have any notes as to how big the aircraft were but they appear to be around 3" long. I still have all of these somewhere out in The Cave and hmmmm one of these decades I'll have to look for them LOL Enjoy! Opa Fritz
