7726 BI-PLANE from DS
« on: October 25, 2006, 19:52:03 »


Review of the Direct Service 7726 Bi-Plane

The little green and white bi-plane is, in my opinion, the most beautiful aeroplane ever produced by Playmobil!

The 7726 re-release from Direct Service is faithful to the original 3246 which was first introduced almost 30 years ago. There aren't as many accessories in the new package, but the plane is there in all her glory.

The directions are very clear and assembly is quite easy.

The first picture is of the original 3246.

The second picture is the new 7726.

The third, fourth and fifth pictures show the well illustrated plans.

Edit: Images removed because posting pictures of plans is not allowed by Geobra!  :P

I hope that you have enjoyed this review.

All the best,

Cool airplane, Richard!

Thanks for posting the pictures.

That would make a cool tri-plane ;D

Best regards,

Jimbo

Yes, it would. Jim ... !!!

It would make a great tri-plane ... !!!

The US DS catalog still shows 7726 being available. However, the US website no longer has 7726 listed. The Canadian website still has it, so I think that you might be able to call in and still get it here in the US. Then you'll need to order an "extra" wing ... ;)

I can't wait to see your conversion, Jimbo ... :)

All the best,
Richard

Thanks for the neat photos of this great little plane Richard! I bought one (the DS version) a while ago. I am considering a custom paint job, but have not decided on the pattern yet...

Yes, many thanks for an excellent review, Richard.  It's a very attractive item indeed.  I toyed with buying one but never did - shortage of space and a reason for it.

Yes, a very nostalgic piece. Thank you for the review.

And actually you really make it fly: I don't see any ropes or "holding" pieces.  ;)
