Not a wind up toy, it takes 2 D cells. Cracked windshield. Very good condition for its age. Wingspan is 18.5" & length is 16.5". Registration is PH-VIJ. 50's KLM logo under the Schuco name. Could be a model of a Douglas DC-6 or DC-7 or could be a Vickers Viscount or some other 4 propper KLM flew back then.
