most of the Minolta XG SLRs of that time had this hybrid construction, whilst the XD's used metal top plates (at least the bulk of the production, it's possible that the very late, new-style logo ones may have changed).

My XG-M had a metal top plate, if I remember, but my X-700's had (well have) plastic top plates

The XG-M kept needing to be cleaned in order to work (internal contacts forever corroding or getting dirty).  For the X-700's I had to keep soldering new capacitors onto the PCB just under the top-plate as it seemed to eat them.  Happy days...
