I'm currently in the search for any CCCP made die-cast WW2 aircraft. I have a bunch made by a CCCP company that I can't translate. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif Wanted to know if anyone knew what the company name was? They made 1:72 scale aircraft which include the I-16, Yak-3, La-5, IL-2 and a flying boat. I would like to know if there are any more in the series?

P.S. These were produced in the 1970's and 80's from what I can tell by the manufacturing.

Some pics of the items I won off of ebay a while back:

I second that. Those die-casts look pretty sweet ! I hope the company is still in business, I'd like to start a collection .

I love that type of models. I have seldom seen them in sweden.

I like holding them and feeling the weight......I sometimes even simulate the enginesound when noone is close by http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/59.gif

Capt._Tenneal, I can tell you for a fact they arent made anymore. The factory in central Russia shut down some time ago... BTW these are 1:72 scale.
