Allyn models

Postby m94x » Fri Jan 03, 2014 3:06 am

Can anyone name all of the Allyn models that were made? I'm curious if there are any that I have not yet seen.

Any corrections and remraks are welcome... i also would like to know.
There was a german Modelmaker in der 30-40 that had avery simmilar name with a little different writing but the german pronounciation sounds like the us writing of the name. Perhaps he moved after the war to the us..

A very, very impressive list. I do not believe that Allyn ever made a chrome C-124.
I believe there is a Boeing supersonic SST circa 1966. I have one of these.
I have several of the North American Aviation B1 chrome.

Thanks for the list. Regards, Richard Starr

B-36 minus the jet engines that had to be added when they discovered six propellors wasn't enough power....

We can add that Douglas C-132 to the Allyn mix. A friend in California has one of these.

In my opinion a Allyn model... but often seen with a pacmin label/stand. I think pacmin took over the "allyn leftovers". It matches beautiful in the B-50, B-36, B-47, B-52 heritage. I never saw one with decals
