A comprehensive list on the Airfix forum, including reboxes:

https://www.airfix.com/us-en/forum/have-airfix-forgotten-those-things-called-cars/?p=10/

1/24 kits:
1/24 Aston Martin DB5 re-tooled to 1/24 Aston Martin DB6
1/24 Bugatti EB110
1/24 Jaguar E-Type
1/24 Peugeot 905 EV1
1/24 Toyota 2000GT

I'm assuming the Bugatti and Peugeot originated with Heller but they shared the moulds.

I had the 1/24 Ferrari 250 GTO and Jaguar XK-E hardtop that originated with Gunze, but passed them on.  Wish I'd kept hold of them.

I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

Thanks Chris, the FSR.1 is Italeri from what I've managed to piece together, which means is could be Esci. Harrier GR.3 is Airfix's, and the Super Etendard which seems to be the Heller kit. Airfix did rebox this one, which leaves the Skyhawk. Which actually could be the old mould Airfix kit, but I thought I read somewhere they used another manufacturer's kit
