I'm truly torn offering up this amazing 1950's Louis Marx battery operated tin plane as I'd LOVE to keep it for myself! This is a "Flying Tigers" swing tail cargo plane that incredibly enough operates as it should AND is in excellent shape! Sequentially while operating: the wing markers flash; the rolling wheels and props come to a stop; the tail section swings open for several seconds and as it starts to swing back close, the inner props start to turn.
When the tail section clicks back in the closed position, the outer props begin to spin again and the wheels begin again to roll forward-AWESOME! The plane measures about 20 from tail to nose and the same from wingtip to wingtip. This has to be one of the coolest tin toys I've ever had in my possession! Good luck and be sure to check back weekly for new auctions!The item "INCREDIBLE 1950's 100% FUNCTIONAL Marx Battery Operated Swing Tail Tin Plane" is in sale since Sunday, May 29, 2016.
