U-2 SPY PLANE, GABRIEL TOY
CO. USA/HONG-KONG 1960s
A big plastic model of U-2 SPY
(see photos bellow). I
didn't try to fly it myself but it seems that it was designed to
fly... Has a simple single-speed plastic camera (Labeled: EMPIRE BABY).
The camera uses 127 film and is activated by a timer which push the shutter
release after 10-15 seconds. You have to bring down the plane each
time you want to move the film to the next shot.
VERY UNIQUE - Did you have that
toy in your childhood?
constructed model in full size (it's big!)
