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!

    Buffalo Airways in Yellowknife, NWT, use these planes along with other vintage "piston pounder" planes. Buffalo Joe would love one of these sitting on his desk.
