Many of the 1/72 kits have more recent competition but I'm right with you about the 2 Cessnas, Seasprite and the Puma.  Others (eg Banshee and Viking) are also still good enough to sell well, IMHO.

Some good choices there, although I reckon the O2 mould might not be in good condition. I built one from an early seventies moulding and it was a bit of trial. 

If I could add to your list, The Lynx brushes up well, although it needs production intakes. The SRN-1 hasn't had an outing since the seventies.

Yes, I should have added the SRN-1. That was an oversight on my part. I have an original issue in the stash and it’s a nice kit.
