Where's the Mayo ? where's the Andalouse ? I suddenly have a craving for Fries...

Tin futuristic airplane

World Jet Airlines, Crown (?), Hong Kong, 1970's
This plane was a gift from a fellow Portuguese toy collector (thanks Paulo !) and has the same "rainbow" function as the aircar from Japan you can see here.

Cute litlle toy, half plastic, half tin. Friction powered. Now I'll just ask if some airline companies could take this paintscheme... it certainly would make life at the airports much more cheerful !

I did not know they made a movie out of this - with non-Japanese actors... Cashing in the Star Wars craze of the time.

Italian aliens and spaceships on a diet

 .... well, not really, because they came as a premium in candy packages...

But the figurines are really flat, and you have to ask yourself : what did the toy designers smoke to make some of these ?

The material is a bakelite-tupe of plastic and they are about 3 / 3.5cm tall.

Aliens, Spaceships, Saucers... brand unknown, Italy, 1950's
