--62n Junkers Ju 90 Air Liner (1938-1941)

From Berlin, bought as a real bargain in September 2007, this Junkers Ju 90 airliner. When it arrived I tried to imagine how this Dinky Toy survived the war over there (like many other Dinky Toys on many other war-stricken places in Europe). It was without a box and missing one propeller, but still displaying very nicely. I was extremely glad with it, my first pre-war Dinky aeroplane. I bought a new replacement for the propeller and it dangled on a chain in my display for nine years. 

Early this year I found a very nice box for this model, at last. I asked John if he could confirm that this box was a credible match to this very model, and he did, so I struck and bought it. And so did John help me with a true original replacement for the replica propeller that I had fixed nine years ago. Now that my new display unit has just been completed it is one of the proud pre-war planes (of seven) on display, sitting on its box and complete with four original propellers. Admittedly, the propeller pin is not just correct, but there is always something to complain about ... or to improve!

Kind regards, Jan

Re : --62n Junkers Ju 90 Air Liner (1938-1941)

Jan--Very nice to see that the Junkers has now come "full circle", and is back in its original guise.  How nice that you were able to find a nice original box, and then a propeller too........a great story of collecting success!
