Vintage Tin Yonezawa Battery Operated American Airlines DC7 With Lighted Engines, Cragstan/Yonezawa Japan. 24 Long and a 23 1/2 Wingspan. This is a seldom seen version of this tin toy, with a different variation of the lighted engines. The plane is in nice condition for its age, nice paint with some scratches and has a couple of small dents. The wing and all 4 props look to be in good shape.
When tested, it starts off at a stop, props start to spin one by one, the light on top flashes, engine lights come on, plane moves forward a ways, stops, engines stop, side door opens and closes, then the actions repeat. One of the engine lights is not working, seen in picture. The on/off switch is a little touchy, needs to be positioned just right to stay on. The battery compartment is clean.Not a perfect toy, but still a nice example and would display nice in your toy collection. Please view all pictures for a detailed description.
