Just bought this in a consignment shop in Miami for $10!
From researching it, I believe it is a 1/43 scale model of a Lockheed Turboprop Electra and the desktop versions were "gifts" to help secure govt. contracts or for certain contractors or pilots and only a handful were made.
It has the manf. tag on the plane's belly that says, Manufactured By 'Raise Up' Rotterdam Holland
I collect an eclectic variety of things; mostly vintage toys, watches and Morgan silver dollars - but this is up there in the cool factor.
Am interested in finding out if there is a company that restores these? The bottom is perfect, but the top looks like it was in the way while an office was being painted!
