Vintage Metal Spirit of St. Louis "Lucky Lindy" 3-Engine Toy Bi-Plane; measuring a full 11-1/2" across x 3" tall x 8-1/4" long, this silver-colored metal scale model [c1940s-50s] originally came in kit form providing some lucky youngster plenty of options for assembly, and hours of fun pretending he's in the cockpit flying the first non-stop flight across the Atlantic, from Garden City, New York, to Paris, France, in 33 hours and 30 minutes! Stamped on both sides 'Spirit of St. Louis', in honor of Charles Lindbergh's hometown sponsors (see detail photograph), this toy plane is in very good vintage condition with all parts in place although there is obvious wear, including what appears as a light rust on half of the fuselage and a portion of 1 of the silver-painted wooden wheels missing; this bi-plane features fascinating engine detail, movable propellers and a 34"-long chain extending from both wing-mounted engines for ceiling display, if desired; own a little piece of aviation history with this fun item!
