Canadian Aerocar by G.P.L.

Aerocar, G.P.L., Canada, 1950's ?
This one is of course based on the US-version made by Plas-Tex (see here). Did they sell or swap the molds after they made their production run ? Who knows...  G.P.L. was more active in plastic dishware than in toys.

Strangely enough, this one still has the non-friction base. The moulds went afterwards (or before ?) to another Commonwealth country, Australia, where company Duperite made a friction version. (see here).

Flying Goldrake Saucer

Atlas UFO robot, Cosmec, Italy, 1979

Cosmec did a number of these. You had Superman of course... but also our favorite robot in 2 different versions. Here is the saucer. (for the robot version click here) Just clip the "fishing rod" to the wing (there is already a hole there for the occasion) and start flying the ultralight piece of blown a circular motion in the air. Hours of fun guaranteed !
