Aero Mini, Inc. was a model company that was established in 1968. All models were produced in Japan through 1974. The company entered bankruptcy and ceased operations in early 1976. The line of quality die-cast models has gained wide appeal with modern collectors. Although sold as toys, the Aero Mini models were some of the earliest model aircraft collectible models.
Aero Minis are constructed of die-cast zinc metal. Features include decaled logos and other detail areas over a painted fuselage, and most interestingly, retractable landing gear which is scale in appearance. Collectors who pursue Aero Minis appreciate them for their nostalgia and rarity. Today, the original Japanese-produced models are considered antiques. Furthermore, Aero Minis were considered very advanced for their time having been cast from precisely engineered moulds to 0.0005 in. and without access to all of the computer graphics and techniques available today. Factory drawings were used to ensure accuracy of the configurations.
These models produced through 1976 are not to be confused with the second generation of this line, Aeromini, Inc. This company is currently manufacturing games, toys and children's vehicles. Airliners manufactured by Aeromini do not carry the cachet and collectibility of the original Aero Mini line.
