This all-metal bi-plane is the perfect example of how toys use to be made - the old fashioned way with simple, yet colourful decals, a wind-up mechanism and a design that's not only appealing but long lasting too.
The car - with open to the weather front seats - has an RAF blue body with grey running boards and roof. The underside is black. It has silver and black lithographed detailing with balloon tinplate tyres. It is fitted with a permanent key for the clockwork mechanism. The lower edge of the boot reads "GB Made in England". The car has a length of 9 inches (22.9 cm), a depth of 3.3 inches (8.3 cm) and a height of 3 inches (7.6 cm).
