Have any airmail stamp collectors on your Christmas list? I’ve been lurking on the Suck UK website again and found the ultimate philately related gift.

Airmail balsa plane from Suck UK mail order

Is this cool, or what? Write a brief message, throw on the appropriate postage on and pop it in the mail. The actual item, before it’s constructed is an decent replica of an old style airmail envelope – when airmail was an exciting thing to receive. The design is charming, right down to the iconic red mail box on the front:

If you’re interested in buying one, Suck UK ships around the world. They’re a pretty inexpensive gift for any philately fan. But, I’d get 2 because one would be for the display and one for play:  http://www.suck.uk.com/mob/products/postcardaeroplane/ No idea who Suck UK is, but they have the funkiest gifts I’ve seen in a long time.
