They were produced as toys in 1969. Cast metal with a somewhat soft plastic for details and struts. Markings were appropriate and were press-on printed color paper. Each model was presented in a hard clear plastic octogon shaped box.

The line consisted of: Ansaldo A.1 Balilla Aviatik-Berg D.I Fokker Dr.I Granville Gee Bee Gregor FDB-1 Hansa-Brandenburg D.I Macchi MC.72 Nieuport N.11 RAF SE.5a Sopwith Baby SPAD S.XIII Supermarine S.5 Boley re-issued the line (except for the Supermarine S.5) last year under their Classic Planes logo. Packaging is blister pack. Markings are still press-on printed color paper, but they are horrible garish stuff with no relation to the originals. The Gregor is given as a Grumman F3F, the Macchi MC.72 is presented with Supermarine S.5 markings.

I picked mine up at Berkeley Ace Hardware's basement hobby shop. Might be hard to find in hobby shops. Try toy stores.

Data from ESM 72. Subscription information on request.
