Dinky Copy in Plastic

Postby grwebster » Wed Jun 02, 2010 7:54 am

This S-58 Sabena helicopter came in a package very similar to the French Dinky Toy of the same helicopter.
The French maker was Miniluxe Aviation and is a nice toy, just the same.

I have only seen one other airplane by Miniluxe Aviation, the Douglas DC-6?-7? I have an example in the original box somewhere and will post when I find it.

I also remember your mentioning the "Bonux" washing powder or detergent having small plastic toy planes and Marchand features some of these in his second book, Jeux et jouets du ciel.

A French toy car collector noted that the actual maker was Clé. I am not sure why they used that spelling but the trade mark was indeed a "clef" i.e. key.

There was also a Dinky Copy Vickers Viking,it came as part of a rotating aeroplane toy,I remember well seeing exact copies of Dinky Toy cars during the sixties in copies of Dinky boxes as well made in China,so there may have been other aeroplanes ?

This is a very rare Bonux helicopter, the Frelon from the 50's!
