Vintage Hand-Made WOODEN BIPLANE Green Model Airplane! - eBay (item 310027063280 end time Mar-04-08 18:19:25 PST)
This vintage green painted wooden airplane may have been a kit. It has a hand-carved wood block fuselage and wings with professional-looking struts, metal propeller, and wheels. I see no maker's mark anywhere.
The hunter green color has black and white hand-painted accents in the form of stripes, circles and the numeral 2. The wingspan is 14 5/8" and the plane is about 9 1/2" long.
The paint is chipped here and there, particularly on the upper wing and fuselage. The propeller spins easily, the wheels turn easily, and the plane is sturdily constructed. This wooden airplane would look great on a shelf or strung up from your ceiling.
