The information I've seen dates this toy from 1935-38.

It looks like you did a pretty nice job on that rotor.

I have the New York Airways version of that -107, it is very realistic. Sorry - it's not a Rotodyne, though! The only one of those I have is the "Vertical liner" SR649. A previous owner re-attached one of the jets backward but I dismantled it and re-attached it in the proper direction. Other than that, and some corrosion where the batteries go, it's pretty nice!
