HERE I AM OFFERING A VERY, VERY RARE, FULLY TIN, VINTAGE, LARGE VERSION OF THE DUAL FRICTION DRIVEN, WESTERN GERMANY MADE DUAL ROTO U.S. NAVY HELICOPTER THAT IS IN PERFECT WORKING CONDITION AND COMES IN ITS ORIGINAL BOX! THIS IS THEIR MODEL NUMBER: 568.

NIOB = NEW IN ORIGINAL BOX.

THIS CAME TO ME BY THE WAY OF MY GOOD FRIEND IN THE UK. HE WAS IN CHARGE OF A MULTI-UNIT STORAGE FACILITY AND THIS WAS IN ONE OF HIS BUILDINGS.

HAVING HUNDREDS OF MODEL CARS TO CHOOSE FROM, MOSTLY PORSCHE AND CORVETTES, I HAVE DECIDED TO START LISTING SOME OF THESE HERE ON E-BAY. 90% OF THESE ARE ONE-OF-A-KINDS LISTINGS AND I WILL DO MY BEST TO SHOW YOU AN ARRAY OF PICTURES AND DESCRIBE THEM TO THE BEST OF MY ABILITY. THIS COOL (SMALL) TIN HELICOPTER IS NO EXCEPTION TO THIS RULE!

THIS MODEL USES DUAL FRICTION DRIVE MOTORS. ONE OF THESE ARE PLACED ON EACH END AND DRIVES THE ROTO ABOVE. THESE WERE TESTED AND THEY BOTH WORKED PERFECTLY WITH NO SLIPPAGE IN THE FRICTION DRIVE WHAT-SO-EVER. THE BLADES ARE ALSO ON A CLUTCH TYPE DRIVE SO IF YOUR HANDS WERE TO GET CAUGHT IN THE SPINNING OF THE BLADES, THEY SIMPLY STOP SPINNING, BUT, THE FRICTION DRIVEN WHEELS CONTINUE ON THEIR MERRY WAY.

THE TIN LITHOGRAPH FOUND THROUGHOUT THE BODY OF THIS HELICOPTER IS PERFECT AND THERE IS NO FRICTION WEAR OR ANY IMPERFECTIONS THAT I CAN FIND, OTHER THEN THE ORIGINAL MANUFACTURE TRACES. NO RUST IS FOUND ANYWHERE ON THIS HELICOPTER.

THE FOUR (4) WHEELS ARE ORIGINAL AND HAVE NO CRACKS, FLAT SPOTS OR DRY-ROT.

AS THE LARGER VERSION OF THIS B&S TIN HELICOPTER, THE BODY MEASURES OUT AT JUST UNDER 12 INCHES (30CM).

THE SIX (6) PLASTIC BLADES ARE 100% ORIGINAL AND SLIDE INTO PLACE AND LOCK INTO POSITION. ALL OF THESE BLADES ARE STRAIGHT, AND EASILY OPEN AND CLOSE (FOR STORAGE). PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS MODEL HAS "PLASTIC" BLADES. THEY DESIGNED THIS LARGER VERSION AFTER THEY REMOVED THE TIN BLADES FROM THE SMALLER VERSION. AS SUCH, THEY NEVER PRODUCED THIS LARGER VERSION WITH TIN BLADES.

ON THE SIDE OF THIS HELICOPTER YOU HAVE THE LOGO AND IDENTIFICATION OF THE MANUFACTURER, WHICH IS THE ELEPHANT WITH THE INITIALS "B&S" A TOP OF IT.

THE ORIGINAL BOX OFFERED HERE IS IN SHOWCASE SHAPE/CONDITION. THE LIDS SHOW VIRTUALLY NO WEAR, ABRASIONS OR STORAGE RASH. NO TAPE IS USED ANYWHERE ON THE BOX AND ALL OF THE END FLAPS AND TABS ARE FIRMLY ATTACHED AND LOCK INTO EACH OTHER.

I HAVE JUST LOCATED TWO (2) OF THESE IN IDENTICAL SHAPE/CONDITION. IN ADDITION, I WAS ABLE TO LOCATE THIS HELICOPTERS LITTLE BROTHER! THAT'S RIGHT, I HAVE FOUND TWO (2) OF THE SMALLER VERSION AS TRUE NOS! THESE TWO (2) SMALLER VERSIONS WERE JUST LISTED HERE ON EBAY!! I DID PICTURE THE BOXES OF BOTH OF THESE IN MY LAST PHOTO.... THIS IS JUST FOR SIZE COMPARISON AND ONLY ONE OF THE LARGE HELICOPTERS IS INCLUDED IN THIS OFFER (UNLESS YOU OPT TO PURCHASE BOTH OF THEM).

BY MY STANDARDS AND POLICIES, I VERY RARELY DO NOT TEST WHAT IT IS I AM OFFERING HERE ON E-BAY. AFTER ALL JUST HOW DIFFICULT IS IT TO TEST A MODEL? ALL ONE NEED DO IS TO TOSS IN A FEW BATTERIES AND GIVE IT A GO, OR A SIMPLE PUSH TO SEE IF THE FRICTION DRIVE IS WORKING! I AM NOT ONE OF THOSE SELLERS WHO WILL EVER SAY "THIS MODEL IS UNTESTED AND AS SUCH IT IS SOLD IN AS IS CONDITION" OR , "I HAVE NOT TESTED THE WIND-UP MECHANISM (CLOCK-WORK) AS I DO NOT HAVE A KEY, SO THIS WILL BE SOLD UNTESTED". THIS TIN DUAL FRICTION DRIVEN HELICOPTER IS FULLY TESTED (AND WORKS PERFECTLY) AND WILL BE FULLY TESTED ONCE MORE, JUST PRIOR TO SENDING IT OFF. I DO THIS TWICE, JUST TO MAKE SURE THAT THE FIRST TESTING WAS NOT A FLUKE! I AM SURE WE BOTH DO NOT WANT ANY ISSUES HERE AND THIS IS ONE EASY STEP TO AVOID ANY!
I TAKE PRIDE IN MY MODELS THAT I OFFER HERE IN THE E-BAY WORLD. I DO HAVE OPTIONS AND I CHOOSE TO OFFER ONLY THE VERY FINEST THAT I HAVE AVAILABLE.

ALL-IN-ALL YOU WILL BE VERY, VERY HARD PRESSED TO LOCATE ANOTHER FULLY TIN, DUAL FRICTION DRIVEN HELICOPTER IN THE LARGER VERSION THAT LOOKS LIKE AND WORKS LIKE THIS ONE DOES! ADD TO THIS THE FACT THAT YOU HAVE THE ORIGINAL BOX IN PRISTINE SHAPE/CONDITION AND NOW YOU HAVE SOMETHING THAT ANY COLLECTOR WOULD BE PLEASED AND PROUD TO ADD TO THEIR COLLECTION OF TIN, FRICTION DRIVE, ANTIQUE/VINTAGE, U.S. MILITARY, FLYING, WESTERN GERMANY MODEL COLLECTION!!

ONCE AGAIN, PLEASE TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT THESE PICTURES AND IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR DESIRE ADDITIONAL PICTURES, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO CONTACT ME VIA E-BAY MESSAGING AND SUPPLY ME WITH YOUR E-MAIL ADDRESS AND I WILL DO THE REST!

THIS VINTAGE, TIN, WESTERN GERMAN LARGE SIZE HELICOPTER IS AN EXCELLENT EXAMPLE OF A MODEL AND OF AN ERA THAT HAS LONG PASSED US BY.

THIS IS A NEW STORE FOR ME HERE ON E-BAY, BUT, I COME WITH A WELL OILED AND POLISHED TRACK RECORD! I AM CURRENTLY (NOT ON THIS ACCOUNT ... YET!!) A GOLD T/RATED POWER~SELLER WITH OVER 5 YEARS OF THIS STATUS BACKING ME. I SPECIALIZE IN PRIMARILY THE AUTOMOTIVE FIELD AND I CONCENTRATE WITH/ON PORSCHE, BENTLEY, AUDI AND "PORSCHE DESIGN" ITEMS/ACCESSORIES.

I HAVE A UPS ACCOUNT AND MOST OF MY OFFERINGS HERE SHALL BE SENT THAT WAY. I PACK EACH AND EVERY ITEM MYSELF AND DO SO AS IF I WERE RECEIVING IT. ALL OF MY DOMESTIC SHIPMENTS WILL BE INSURED FOR THE SELLING PRICE. I ENTER THE SHIPPING DATA DAILY INTO BOTH E-BAY AND PAYPAL. THIS TIN B&S HELICOPTER WILL BE SENT VIA THE USPS.

FOR MY INTERNATIONAL SHIPMENTS, THIS WILL BE SENT VIA THE USPS INTERNATIONAL "REGISTERED" AIR MAIL. THIS METHOD IS REQUIRED BY BOTH E-BAY AND PAYPAL, AS PROOF OF DELIVERY IS REQUIRED. UTILIZING THIS METHOD TO OBTAIN ONES SIGNATURE IS THE MOST ECONOMICAL ROUTE TO GO...... ACCORDINGLY, A SIGNATURE WILL BE REQUIRED AT THE TIME OF DELIVERY. I DO RESERVE THE RIGHT TO SUBSTITUTE DHL AS AN INTERNATIONAL CARRIER.

I ALSO ENCOURAGE YOU TO TAKE A LOOK AT THE POSTAGE STAMP (IF APPLICABLE) ONCE YOU RECEIVE THE PARCEL FROM ME. I MAKE NO MONEY ON THE POSTAGE AND IN FACT, THIS USUALLY ENDS UP COSTING ME MONEY! BUT, IF YOU OVER-PAY ME BY ONE DOLLAR OR MORE, I ALWAYS AND INSTANTLY REFUND 100% OF THE DIFFERENCE WITH OUT EVER HAVING TO BE ASKED! IF YOU HAVE ANY PROBLEM PAYING WHAT IT COSTS TO RECEIVE THIS MODEL FROM ME IN A TIMELY AND SAFE MANNER, I STRONGLY SUGGEST THAT YOU PASS ON THIS MODEL AS I DO NOT NEED ANOTHER IGNORANT INTERNATIONAL BUYER TO NOT UNDERSTAND THIS, BUT, STILL TAKE THE TIME TO LEAVE NEGATIVE OR NEUTRAL FEEDBACK!

PLEASE NOTE: I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY TAXES, DUTIES OR MONIES WHICH MIGHT BECOME DUE OR MAY BE ACCESSED BY ANY FOREIGN GOVERNMENT, SO PLEASE BE PREPARED FOR THIS ON YOUR END.

AS MENTIONED ABOVE, THIS IS A NEW AREA FOR ME (HERE ON E-BAY) AND I DO TRY MY BEST TO DO AS GOOD AS I CAN. THIS HAS BECOME A FULL TIME BUSINESS FOR ME AND I REALLY ENJOY DOING IT. I WILL CONTINUE TO DO SO TILL IT BECOMES A BURDEN AND I CAN NO LONGER ENJOY IT. I WILL BE ADDING TO THIS STORE WEEKLY (OR TRYING TO) AND HOPEFULLY YOU WILL SEE THAT I DO EXACTLY WHAT I SAY AND DO SO IN A VERY TIMELY FASHION.

THIS WILL BE OFFERED IN THE BUY-IT-NOW FORMAT AND THIS IS A TWO-OF-A-KIND OFFERING BY ME AT THIS TIME.
IT IS MY INTENTION TO LIST ONE OR TWO DIFFERENT MODELS EACH AND EVERY DAY (IF AT ALL POSSIBLE), OR UNTIL SUCH A TIME WHEN I GET BURNT OUT FROM DOING SO. IT MIGHT BEHOOVE YOU TO CHECK IN WITH ME OFTEN AS YOU'LL NEVER KNOW WHEN AND IF I WILL OFFER THAT SPECIAL SOMETHING THAT WILL ROUND OUT OR COMPLETE YOUR COLLECTION!




THIS IS WHERE I THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME IN READING ALL OF THE ABOVE.

I HAVE JUST ADDED THE "STORE" FEATURE THAT E-BAY OFFERS WE SELLERS TO USE (AT A FEE OF COURSE) AND THIS IS TO ASSIST YOU, THE BUYER, TO VIEW ALL OF MY OFFERINGS. IN ORDER TO VIEW MY LISTINGS IN A CONCISE AND ORDERLY FASHION, ALL YOU NEED DO IS TO LOCATE THAT SMALL "RED" DOOR A TOP THIS PAGE. THIS IS LOCATED JUST BELOW MY SELLERS ID AND FEEDBACK TALLY.
