Made to take two size "D" batteries, activated by power switch under tail. Overall length about 17"; fuselage length about 14 1/2"; wingspan 13 1/2.
Two noticeable marks on fuselage - both on left side (one through 2nd emergency door, one on rear fuselage under "727"). A few small marks in dark blue anti-glare panel on nose.
Two very small dents in top of left wingtip. Never used outside; always stored indoors under temperature control. Turning power switch "on" once made five red lights on engines flash and plane taxied via nose wheel drive mechanism.
After a half century stored, plane will taxi about two out of every three attempts I made; the other one out of three times a noise is heard, but front tires will not rotate. Lights on engines RARELY flash, and have done so only on those occasions when front tires do NOT turn. Electrical repair would require disassembly - plane has never been taken apart. If "MAKE OFFER" box appears, it is NOT valid and no offers will be considered.
