Northrop T-38 Talon Tin Jet Toy

Postby hovermd » Tue Dec 09, 2014 8:03 pm

A fellow collector recently contacted me about this tin Northrop U.S. Air Force T-38 Talon jet toy.

Can anyone identify the toy's manufacturer or provide other info about the item?

Nice! ...that's not much of a model of a T-38 but it looks really nifty!
We'll wait for our resident tin expert, Tone, to chime in.

Daito is the manufacturer.

Same pressing as the Bat plane.

In the "Boisgerard" auction of Bernard Macaire's collection, there is also an olive drab version.

I thought it was an A-37.

It sounds like the owner is going to list this item on Ebay in case anyone is interested.

Does anyone have a photo of the Batman version?

I'd be interested in seeing that...
