A handful of good china injection moulding design and style photos I discovered:

Quoting Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum | Hawker Hurricane Mk. IIC:
Hawker Chief Designer Sydney Camm’s Hurricane ranks with the most critical aircraft styles in military aviation history. Designed in the late 1930s, when monoplanes were deemed unstable and also radical to be profitable, the Hurricane was the 1st British monoplane fighter and the initial British fighter to exceed 483 kilometers (300 miles) per hour in level flight. Hurricane pilots fought the Luftwaffe and helped win the Battle of Britain in the summer season of 1940.
This Mark IIC was constructed at the Langley factory, near what is now Heathrow Airport, early in 1944. It served as a coaching aircraft during the World War II in the Royal Air Force’s 41 OTU.

The P-61 Black Widow was the initial U.S. aircraft designed to find and destroy enemy aircraft at night and in negative climate, a feat made feasible by the use of on-board radar. The prototype initial flew in 1942. P-61 combat operations began just after D-Day, June 6, 1944, when Black Widows flew deep into German airspace, bombing and strafing trains and road visitors. Operations in the Pacific started at about the exact same time. By the finish of World War II, Black Widows had seen combat in every theater and had destroyed 127 enemy aircraft and 18 German V-1 buzz bombs.
The Museum’s Black Widow, a P-61C-1-NO, was delivered to the Army Air Forces in July 1945. It participated in cold-climate tests, higher-altitude drop tests, and in the National Thunderstorm Project, for which the leading turret was removed to make room for thunderstorm monitoring gear.

Quoting Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum | Aichi M6A1 Seiran (Clear Sky Storm):
Aichi chief engineer, Toshio Ozaki, designed the M6A1 Seiran to fulfill the requirement for a bomber that could operate exclusively from a submarine. Japanese war planners devised the idea as a implies for striking directly at the United States mainland and other important strategic targets, like the Panama Canal, that lay thousands of kilometers from Japan. To help Seiran operations, the Japanese developed a fleet of submarine aircraft carriers to bring the aircraft inside striking distance. No Seiran ever saw combat, but the Seiran/submarine weapons method represents an ingenious blend of aviation and marine technology.
This M6A1 was the final airframe built (serial quantity 28) and the only surviving instance of the Seiran in the world. Imperial Japanese Navy Lt. Kazuo Akatsuka ferried this Seiran from Fukuyama to Yokosuka where he surrendered it to an American occupation contingent.
