As before, I can't help but lament the passing of both these Matchbox beauties and the 1/48 scale models from Carousel 1. On the Platinum Edition box for this Corsair is the blurb, "Crafted by the Greatest Name in Die-Cast". That was in 2000. Truth be told, not all Matchbox airplane models were first class, but the potential was there, and obviously, so was the talent. (The last diecast airplane series Matchbox announced included a Bell X-1 in 1/72. Since the series was going to be released the month after the announcement, the mold must have been ready to go. Too bad someone didn't grab it up. Let the treasure hunt begin.)
A 1975 Matchbox Die Cast Airplane SB-15 Phantom F4E. This Matchbox Airplane features markings for the Royal Navy. It measures 4 3/8 inches long and 2 7/8 inches wing tip to wing tip. It is in nice played with condition, please see pictures for paint wear.
