Skymarks models are all solid plastic mould injected planes with plastic wings. They make good toys for 5-10 year old kids to remember something they've flown on or seen at the airport. Manufacturers such as Gemini Jets, Inflight200, Avaition200, Phoenix Models & JC Wings all make models of similar size that are fully diecast and are more detailed, however expect to note the price increase as well. Not a deal for the planes, you can easily find them around for a couple dollars more if not the same price at multiple retailers.
