This was found in the cast off pile in an antique / collectables store near Gettysburg PA. It never fails to take your wife on these little trips as sometime a few gems do show up.  One box is a bit water stained but   everything was there and apparently never opened.      Not a bad copy.  Wish the canopy was clear.   The undersides are a bit like Yat Ming with screws aplenty.  That said they are still a decent copy of an aircraft we might not see otherwise.    The Ertl Company produced these for the Texaco Oil & Shell Companies in the late 80' s and early 90's .  Many of the  1930's oil companies sponsored air racers in the 30's.  These are still available, but looking on line command some surprising prices.  

These are actually coin banks, some with slots and others the canopies open to take coins.   Pretty hefty and durable being somewhere between 1/48 and 1/43.
