Hi folks,

look what I found out in the following blog:

http://projectswordtoys.blogspot.com/2009/02/1962-dyna-soar-comic-strip.html

It really seems like a sort of mechanical toy representing FDL-5, even with swing wing, how could it be possible?

Many thanks Gregory.

In the same blogsite I found the FDL-5 is stated that the X20 come by the same manufacturer of the time.
This demonstrate that, during 60's, the popularity of some programmes comes easily in pop colture even through simple (but not so much simple) toys like the ones we posted.

Anyway why I did never seen a toy X15 version?

You know what? Dyna-Soar's really begging for serious die-cast replica. But "Tailwinds"-style, so I dont go broke! Seeing these pics only make me want a die-cast X-20 even more now.

PS- I think a lot experimental planes are just begging for a small die-cast replica.

I absolutely agree with you.

Back in the 70's when visiting relations in Yorkshire my cousin had a toy X-15 - must have been about 12 inches long or more. I seem to remember being quite envious.

Regards,
Barry

Used to be all over the place. I don't think they sold all that well.

I saw those in a shop in Ft. Collins once. I thought the X-20 and the X-24 were a little on the puny side. If it was bigger I'd have bought the set.
