Growing up in the 60s as a kid one of the great things was the giveaway paper or cardboard aircraft toy.
Thanks to the Internet I have photos of two such items which I missed having (and probably trashing) in those far off days.
The first came free with Nesquik milkshake powder. It is a simple BOAC 707. They did a whole series including a Victor bomber which I did have as a kid. This is the first time in nearly 60 years I have seen one.
The second is a TSR2 given away with a comic. Sharp eyed fans will note it is in the silver colour of the earliest artists impression.

Fiddlersgreen and a dozen other websites will cheerfully sell you hundreds of different paper models today. Many are free to down-load. Many can be down-loaded electronically and printed at home.
