International Sales - the buyer is responsible for any & all Custom Fees, if applicable. Wartime 1:432 identification "pocket" models were manufactured in both plastic by Cruver and in metal by Comet Metal Products; wartime models had a small hole at the c.g. for mounting or hanging. Both types were produced after WWII for sale to the public and for use as advertising premiums; many different colors were used for these post-war versions, but they were generally made without the small hole - some, however, do have a mounting hole - the 1945 Authenticast catalog shows a variation of the 1:432 metal aircraft which are mounted on a wire extending from a small metal stand. Perhaps this hole does not go all the way through as on the wartime issues. Several of these post-war models are offered for sale below and are individually priced. General Mills offered a group of 22 planes made by Cruver; a portion of a 1946 newspaper advertisement for these "Kix scale-model plastic planes" is shown below. Ten-cents and a Kix box top for each set! These models were generally in grey plastic. We strive for 5-star service, even though this is just a hobby for us.
