"Dinky Toys" Die Cast DH Comet Airliner. c.1954

Miniature diecast model of a DeHavilland Comet Airliner.  Made in England around 1954 by Meccano Ltd. as part of their "Dinky Toys" series (No.702). 

This model is still fitted with all it's wheels and is decorated with it's original white, blue and silver paint work, and transfers. Nice condition (no damage, some wear to paint). Length : 147mm.

This is an example of the first version of the "Dinky Toys" Comet, which bears the registration "G-ALYV". The real DeHavilland Comet aircraft bearing this number crashed in 1953 killing all on board. With this in mind, Meccano decided to change the registration of it's Comet models to "G-ALYX".
