Tipp & Co made a wide variety of these - one where the pilot gets ejected and parachutes, one with machine guns that make a rat-a-tat sound, and this one that can drop bombs. I believe this came in a military paint scheme and this civilian-style paint scheme (although it still have bomb logo's on the wings -- maybe it's a privateer). It comes with the original box which has been heavily repaired. It was thin cardboard to start with and it has basically been glued onto an inner new cardboard liner box.
The original key is gone so I'm including a Marklin key that fits perfectly. You can wind it from above or below (same shaft). That drives the wheels and spins the propeller and turns a crank on the top center of the underside of the wing that has two rods that extend the length of the wings -- the bombs attach to this and as they pull in towards the center of the plane the bombs drop off. The mechanism needs some adjustment as one of the arms sticks on the underside of the wing after a certain point and then it doesn't retract enough to drop a bomb. Each is 2-piece with a hanger clip.Wingspan is 14.25 inches and length is 10 inches. States for New York that's 8% - yikes! I use lots of bubble wrap and peanuts and good boxes. In a group of multiple pieces each item is wrapped individually. I use a loupe to examine the toys while I'm listing them and I try and mention the significant condition issues I see. I leave feedback so please do the same.
