This is a prepainted, 6 piece model of a robin. If I read the logo right, the model company is Elm Toys out of Hong Kong. I don't know how old it is.

... Your boxing sounds exactly like the "Marx Bird Model Kit" I mentioned (six parts, plus the boxes are the same size), and had hoped, was the world's smallest kit boxing. Turns out Revell produced a couple of even smaller kits & they were used as inserts in "Get Well" cards.

For a short time there I thought I had something truly unique!


Sigh...

Tomt.

life size. I built a couple as a kid. Other than the seams, they looked pretty realistic.
