Late 80s 737, the first casting, all-metal with realistic airline colors.



Mid 70s Cessna.



Pitts Special, 1980s to early 90s.



One of the very first, an A7 Corsair from 1973.

The older ones have metal bodies. Also do an on-line search as there are many die cast plane specialists who like them. There is a man in Scotland named Les Veitch who has compiled a complete list of them. You are lucky because they are not expensive. The most expensive I have seen is a "Heinz Ketchup" Concorde.

There are some weird and rare castings such as a Russian Il-28 Beagle Bomber made for sale only in China by the firm SUTC (Shanghai United Toy Company) and the Concorde re-done as a Russian Tupolev 144 supersonic made in Bulgaria and sold in eastern Europe.
