All moving parts are hand-fitted and tested for smooth operation. The propeller spins smoothly, and the wheels roll as they should. I insert nylon washers behind the wheels and the propeller to act as both a bearing and a spacer that prevents them from rubbing against the toy's body, allowing them to turn freely. I make these for my grandson. If they don't work correctly, he will soon tell me I need to fix it.

While not precisely made to scale, this toy aircraft works well with my Play Pal size cars and trucks sold separately.

This toy airplane is currently a "Made To Order" item. I will get it done as quickly as possible, but it may take up to two weeks to ship. It takes at least four days to make one of these ready to ship.

Approximate Size:
Length: 8 inches/203mm
Width: 6.75 inches/172mm
Height: 3 inches/76mm

Some parts are next to impossible to get a clamp on. Rubber bands can come in handy in these situations.
