Gilbert Erector Air-Kraft Set

New Haven, Conn., 1928

A. C. Gilbert's fascination with transportation continued with this set, produced from 1928 to possibly as late as 1935. With it, one could build a variety of airplanes with one or two wings, wheels or floats, and one, two or three engines. The built-up airplane was designed so it could be hung from a ceiling mount, and its built-in motor ran directly from a wall or ceiling receptacle.
