Quoting AerLingus747 (Reply 4): Here are mine, most of them are Gemini Jets a few Corgi and Hogan and a few Others.
I have the 787 model you have. I love that model. Not a bad price either. I have slowed down on the Gemini Jets collecting. They are pumping out too many for my wallet anymore. They are by far a great company. I am watching their new 1/200 series. They look nice. I noticed a Republic DC-9 that needs to join my collection.
I have reverted back to building them. I have found the love again in building my own.

Currently I have A lot of herpa's and they're all 1:500.
I am a totally noob with model airplanes and I don't know what kind of companies and stuff there are. I was wondering if some of you guys could recommend some companies and a good scale( like I said I only have 1:500 so don't know if the others are good or not) to get at not too bad of a price. Also maybe a good place to get them. My dream is to maybe have a full model airport some day. Thanks
BTW, currently I have:
Boeing 787 Dreamliner Colors
CO 752 (winglets)
AB 738 (winglets)

Quoting Profcalvin (Reply 16): was wondering if some of you guys could recommend some companies and a good scale
What a good scale is will depend on how much room you have to store them, and how much detail you want on your model. For me, 1:400 is the perfect size - not too small, but not too big either, and there is sufficient detail on a 1:400 scale with which I'm happy. I also have one 1:500 scale Herpa, but I find that they are a bit small. I notice that you also have a 737 in 1:500, but that would be so small that some detail might get missed.
Admittedly, I wouldn't know which model manufactures make good 1:500 scale models, as I only buy 1:400. Of the 1:400 scale manufacturers, I'd rate Phoenix Models as the best.
I collect mainly kit aircraft in scales of 1:144 or larger, I've got a huge number of these waiting until I'm bored and need something to do. I hardly ever build them out of the box as I only model those exact planes I've flown on, and TBH I've never actually completed one, as several are still awaiting printed decals:

There's a whole bunch more than those, I'm considering selling some as I'm never going to have time to make them all... but I just keep buying more! I'll try and get around to posting some pictures of my other non kit models soon.
