Hello! Its been a while since I've seen a thread on here regarding every ones model aircraft collection so I thought I'd start a new one up. Feel free to post pics of your own collection. As for me, here's my mine:
Will you watch the Cleveland Browns and the Detroit Lions on Sunday? Only if coach Eric Mangini resigned after a loss.
They're all 1:200. About 3/4 of them are Star Jets, a couple of Hogan Wings, one lonely Gemini Jets, and the rest Herpa.

Which company makes the 1:200 bmi A320? I haven't seen this anywhere before.... Nice collection.
Thanks The bmi A320 is made by Star Jets. As far as I know, they went bust a few years back, so finding some of their models can involve a fair number of Google searches and trawling through smaller retailers. You're in luck though - airlinemuseum.com has the bmi A320 in stock.
Quality's substantially better than the Herpas - it's a shame they went under. (Although, I bought every 1:200 they made, so it saved me a fortune...)
Just got my first 1:200 Gemini Jets model last week - the BA A320. Now that's a nice model. Die-cast metal with antennas, rubber tyres, even clear plastic beacons that catch the light, and the printing is incredibly detailed. Well worth getting to the nearest model shop and asking to see one - but have your money with you, because you won't want to leave such a gorgeous plane in the shop.

I want one with wheels, so it'll sit on the shelf - whiich means another shelf, which means another cabinet. Which means more empty space to fill with planes My wish list is getting longer all the time.
