ok so i have about 4 models that are fairly new, all 4 would be from my recent trip to SEA. 3 planes are 1:200 but dont have a manufacture because there from the Boeing store. and the other is Hogan 1:200. I really like the model detail and all around appearance but i think theres just not enough space in my room to start a collection. I am still deciding weather to have a 1:200 collection or a 1:400 collection. I have set my price range to about 20-35$ per model so that is pretty good i hope. If i chose the 1:200 i am going to go with skymark and hogan, but for the 1:400 i am going to for gemini. Please help me to figure out witch one will be best for me!

P.S. sorry for the spelling

Quoting Md11fan (Thread starter):

Hi MD11Fan

If I were you I would start a 1:400 collection. I used to collect 1:200 until about ten years ago but when I first saw the newly emerging 1:400 models available at that time I decided to change. Although 1:200 models do seem to be improving in terms of the quality available I just really like the detail of the 1:400 range. Also, if I had as many 1:200 as I now have 1:400 I would not be able to move in my apartment! 1:400 take up a lot less space...

You mentioned that GeminiJets would be your brand of choice - I am a big fan of GeminiJets especially since they started producing classic British jets such as the VC-10 and Trident, but also there are other good producers too such as Aeroclassics, Dragon Wings (they have improved a lot IMO) and a few smaller companies which happen to be great.

A good supplier in the USA is www.adamjets.com - I can reccomend them highly as most of my collection came from there.

I hope to hear you went 1:400  Wink

UK_Dispatcher you really opened my eyes and made me more intellectual about this  bigthumbsup .
Well i did some thinking and realized that the 1:400 would be best because there smaller, theres alot more to chose from, and they seem to be more collectible. All of the producers you mentioned all look great and might be getting a few from each! But i think im going to be having a problem so i was wondering how many i should get over a certain period? and the adamjets website is great i will defiantly look into that and i wana thank you UK_Dispatcher for all your hospitality!
