An extremely rare late 1930's Arcade 3640 US Army Fighter Plane with a 10 inch wing span. It has a cast iron fuselage and a pressed steel wing. In nice condition with typical play wear.
The landing gear axle and wheels appear to be replacements. The rivet which originally held the fuselage and the wings together has been replaced by an allen bolt and a nut. The replacement propeller is fastened with another allen bolt and two nuts which appear to be replacements.My opinion is that the "Arcade Toy" decal is a reproduction and was placed over the chipped paint at some point in the past to try to make the whole reassembly look more authentic. No cracks in the cast iron. This plane is most likely comprised of an original fuselage and original wings which were reassembled as a result of lost of broken parts. Even with everything mentioned above, I still personally like this fighter plane, :.
