#695 ZEE TOYS/ ZYLMEX – SEVERAL DYNA-FLITES MODELS (Around 1981)


I have three plane models made by Zee Toys/ Zylmex. Unlike the major manufacturers (for example Matchbox), Zee Toys took very seriously this plane series, and made one of the most comprehensive catalogues of scale die-cast planes, from the 70s to the 90s.


The Dyna-Flites series, as I was called, included 162 references, some of which were used twice. In Europe these are hard to find, I could only find these three over the years, and one of them is not 100% complete. The Bronco is missing 3 wheels and the Space Shuttle in wheel.

These are:
A109 P-38 Lightning



A111 OV-10 Bronco






A148 Space Shuttle



In Spain there were also several toymakers that made die-cast planes, I wrote several entries some years ago. Click HERE.
