SAA Model Aeroplanes (Each)

R150.00R300.00

We’ve only ever had a handful of these vintage model aeroplanes for sale. The first time I came across them I was lucky enough to find quite a stash and didn’t realise quite how rare they were – well I think its probably been a decade or so since then, which shows you how hard to find these models are! And today’s pair are extra special because they come with the coolest marketing pamphlet for the Boeing 747, the first plane to be dubbed a ‘jumbo jet’, which became part of the SAA fleet in 1971. When you look at the images in the pamphlet you realise that the glamour of travel really is a thing of the past – that plane looked frikkin amazing!!

Note: Today’s models are made of plastic, not tin

Dimensions: Larger model – 27cm long x 23.5cm wide (incl. wings) x 11cm tall; Smaller model – 17cm long x 16.5cm wide (incl. wings) x 7cm tall
