Vtg Allyn Sales Scale Model P-51 Mustang Chrome Airplane Ashtray Desk Model :
Here is a special sale SANDMAN OVERHAUL for this great, classic chrome ASHTRAY Desktop Model of the famous P-51 WW2 fighter manufactured by Allyn Sales (soon to be K & B Motors) circa 1946 and marketed under the Aero Novelty banner. Unlike the usual versions that we see here on , this one has all four propeller blades intact and the assembly spins with ease!!
The chrome on this model is better than what I find typically. It still has micro-pits but as you can see from the photos, it still holds a significant shine. It will be a knockout in any display!In addition, not only is the original factory designed canopy intact as well but the original cockpit insert is in place and was further detailed with the pilot and equipment painted in appropriate colors.
The original anti-glare panel is still on the engine cowling and the serial numbers on the tail. Alas the poorly scaled national markings were missing. These have been replaced with more scale-like designs and note that the single-point-forward on the star is correctly positioned (refer to others you find and compare)
Also missing is the original black glass ashtray insert. No matter, an appropriate substitute is included until the new owner tracks down an original.
All-in-All, this PARTICULAR Allyn P-51 ashtray model is probably the nicest "stock" version that will be sold this year on . DO NOT MISS OUT ON THIS ONE!!!
