|Auburn Rubber Airplane Toys (6 Views)||M60 Home Toy Gallery Auburn Gallery|
My collection lacks the large, swept wing jet fighter-bomber but all the rest are present. They are all quite small with wing spans of 3 1/2 to 5 1/2 inches. They have 'play appeal', certainly, but for me the Auburn aircraft have less excitement than their Sun counterparts. Alas, all the companies' rubber airplanes are subject to very sad wing sag and those in the Museum collection are all victims of it, though to a lesser degree than many (perhaps most). Of course, if you -- like me -- love toy airplanes, their diminuitive size and sagging wings won't much matter. It's how they fly that matters for it is, even at my late age, still a wonderful feeling to take one of them in hand and fly the steep climbs, the crushing dives, the stomach wrenching rolls and turns that will always liberate a child's mind. Do, and enjoy!
