U-2 SPY PLANE, GABRIEL TOY CO.   USA/HONG-KONG   1960s
A big plastic model of U-2 SPY PLANE.   (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!)
