SCALE MODEL DIESEL ENGINES

DETROIT DIESEL

This model of a Detroit Diesel 6-71 engine was widely used as a paperweight, as the central display in an ashtray, and as a base mounted desk model displayed alone or with a pen set. The model appears to be constructed of cast aluminum, and is about 1:12 scale. Its probable period of production was the 1940s and 1950s.
