The first plane is an Automatic Toy Co from Staten Island, NY - The tooling is identical to a German Technofix toy. When I was researching airships on line, I found an Akron, Ohio Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. archive that showed a whole stack of those J Chein Co Martin 130s in their boxes dating to Christmas 1940. And that Yonezawa-Tomiyama C-124 with Canadian insignia is very good indeed.

The B-36 I just added by edit looked good value at $399...out of my league these days and postage/customs duty to the UK would have been a killer even if the seller was willing to ship overseas ( I don't think he was !). Not sure how long these ebay archived pics stay online ...might be a year?
