    Truly a work of art in industrial design. Perhaps it was just too expensive to produce in large numbers.
    A wonderful thing to see in these days of plastic, disposable items that are not expected to last more than a few years at most.

    Best Regards and thanks

    Hi all,
    I agree Doug's opinion,this model has many hand work fixing about wing openning section,so it may costly even in 1930's.
