The first Supertoys aircraft in impressive, original condition, issued between 1947-49. This substantial aeroplane has a gleaming bright silver finish, complete with all four propellors and both delicate floats intact. An unused item and a difficult find in this condition:

One of the best examples you will find, particularly bearing in mind both its age and scarcity. A few little marks/rubs may be seen under especially critical scrutiny.
Complete card box has a complete and bright paper label Some age/storage grubbiness and a couple of little seam splits. The box comes complete with its packing piece which has definitely protected the delicate parts of this craft for the past seventy or so years.

Side paper label is complete and perhaps a little sunfaded now.
No tears or repairs to the card box – the card itself is rather age darkened now.
