    This guy i work with bought a house in recently and found about 30 of these in his attic, they are wood, really really light weight and all are painted white as if they were to be repainted. Any old timers ever seen these or can give me more info? He is gonna give them to me and said keep what i want and sell the rest if they are worth anything.

    Its balsa, i can see grain under the paint, i have an old cork one, i found a very similar one on ebay


    This body shape and size is prett close, wood be 1950's era, maybe sixties, the keels on these were added later on i believe cause of the black drywall type wood screws used
