--62y Giant High Speed Monoplane 1939-1941

Meccano made a colored version of the Junkers Ju 90 with name Giant High Speed Monoplane. Known are 5 main colors, light blue, medium blue, yellow, green and red. The trim on wingflaps, tail and fuselage can be very different. In my collection 4 blue models, all with different trim.

The model was introduced in Meccano Magazine February 1939 and was sold in yellow tradeboxes of six models. Not clear if just one color was in a tradebox or different colors. As sales ended late 1940, the models are not common. Registration of these planes is D-AZBK. All models in my collection have a gliding hole. Prop pins can be spherial or disk type.

Unfortunately the drawing of this model never showed up. From die of first model 62n Junkers Ju 90, model 62y was made by changeable insert with new name Giant High Speed Monoplane. Probably the insert Ju 90 was lost during war and the re-introduced silver 62n had the name Giant High Speed Monoplane also however with registration G-ATBK.

Very spectacular, John, to see so many colour variants of a rare model and even of one basic colour only. And in such a wonderful condition. I wonder what made the factory decide to change such a minor, unsignificant colour detail so frequently. I bet you have many more variants of other colours in your collection!

On copying the registration number G-AZBK and see what the internet answered, I discovered that you made a little typing error, it should be D-AZBK. G-AZBK produced a modern Piper aircraft. Thanks for your interesting post, kind regards, Jan

Hello Jan,

Thanks a lot for your answer. I changed the registation to D-AZBK, was indeed a error.

Regards John.
