Flying Whale

This is how they saw us travel in the future...
Midgetoy (midget - toy; got it ?) was one of the american companies that wanted to benefit from the diecast boom launched by Tootsietoy. They made smaller (and cheaper) vehicles.

Hey, fins ! Who would've thought ?
Spaceship, Midgetoy, USA, 1950's
I am particularly found of these because they were made not that far away from where I spent my US-highschool year as an exchange-student. (we often went to Rockford ;) More info here http://www.mrrc.info/MIDGETOY/index.html
