Model HistoryEdit

The Swing Wing is a casting by Matchbox that debuted for the 1981 mainline. The casting has a number of MB027 and originally produced from 1981 to 1985, 1989, and 1999 when it was discontinued.

The casting has returned for the 2020 Top Gun Maverick 5 pack series, retooled to become partially plastic due to budgetary restrictions. The casting's number is unknown at this time and has since resumed production.
