A very cool tin toy 4 prop airplane. Made in the 1960's I believe. Flying Tiger Lines was an actual air freight company/ in fact I believe the very first air company devoted entirely to hauling freight through the sky. They were bought out by Federal Express. This plane is in excellent condition but not working at the moment though I think the problem is simply a loose wire. Tail swings open to reveal a pallet of freight, propellers spin and plane moves across the floor along with flashing wing tip lights, one red and one green ( if it was working ). The plane was made by Louis Marx and Co. Will get her working. Just realized that the second photo is one of my Yonezawa DC7C tin airplane. My mistake.
