"Spitfire" Desk Model Ashtray

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This is pretty surprising. This example has all the bells and whistles. Well, at least it has all of the original parts, which is extremely rare. The propeller is totally intact. Although it is yellowed and detached, the canopy is there (it was held on with tape when I bought it). It appears as though all the decal insignia are all there. It even has all three of the original rubber feet. And last but not least, the original glass ashtray insert is totally mint.
