You are extremely dedicated to vertical take-off stuff. Congrats on being able to maintain your enthusiasm. Have there been any thread on 1960's verti-craft such as those explored by Ryan and Hiller?

Thanks, Tom

Bandai made a "Vertical Liner" toy that very closely resembles the Ryan and Hiller HC-142. I suspect that aircraft was the inspiration for the toy. You can see it as the second toy featured in the following thread:

Here's another good one...

This "Motorised" kit features a Cool Batcopter, ready for assembly. The toy was released in England in 1966 by Kim Toys (Scalecraft) on behalf of National Periodical Publications Incorporated.

Once assembled, the toy is just under 9 inches long and 4 inches tall.

The packaging reads "As Seen on A.B.C. Television." It's is one of the earliest and hardest-to-find promotional toy releases that came on the heels of the hit television show.
