Hello again Onetrilliondollars,
Thanks for letting me post my answer.
The manufacturer of the miniature metal airplane kits you showed is
Aero Base, based in Japan. Their kits are photo-etched kits made of
copper, brass and nickel-silver, and still require CA (superglue) to
assemble (according to one of the dealers I mentioned below). I could
not find any other manufacturer making a similar product, so I'm sure
the products are unique to Aero Base.

If you would like sources on pre-built photo-etched planes (made in
the same way as the Aero Base planes), I can give you these
photo-etched manufacturers (making mostly planes for 1/350, 1/700 and
other scaled ships):
White Ensign Models
Loren Perry's Gold Medal Models
I'll mention more in case I remember them.
