100% modernism in a children's toy! The toy was produced in Kyiv at the Kiev Experimental Mechanical Plant. Dimensions - 19 × 10.5 × 7.5 cm.Toy weight - 195 grams. Here is an example of an early rare vintage model. (the material of the fins is different and the color scheme of the pilot is different, there is an inscription of the USSR on the helmet). This plant was opened in the very heart of Ukraine in 1944 after the liberation of this territory from the Nazi troops. There were machine tools from the 19th century, which celebrated 100 years from the date of commissioning back in the 1980s, and German-made machine tools that were brought from Germany at the end of the war.
Until 1952, the plant mainly produced tricycles for toddlers, but after that year, the era of clockwork cars and bears began. In 1987, the word "experimental-" was removed from the name Kyiv Experimental Mechanical Toy Plant named after N. Vatutin", and the production itself ceased to be part of "Ukrpromigrushka - the association was liquidated. In the same year, more than 600 people worked at the plant, 50 types of toys were produced, not only clockwork, but also electromechanical.
Toys were repeatedly noted at all-Union exhibitions, exported to the countries of the socialist camp and capitalist states. An extra rare and interesting part of the past. Every day there are fewer of them, suitable as a collection, for a gift or as a good deal in the future.
