I know lots of you guys out there collect model airplanes. Me too! So what planes do you have. Post pictures as well. Here are mine. The last ones are sort of toys, the kind you get at an airport gift shop. The rest are at my Gemini Jets 1:400 scale airport.

Nice collection. Ya gotta love the 380!! I bought that Qantas model today. The LanChile 340 is a nice model. You need an AirCanada 777. Do you have the complete Gemini airport.

Yup, I do have the whole airport, but I only have room for 2 out of the 3 terminal sections. The AC 777 is at the top of my wish list.

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.

In my view, you can't go wrong with Gemini Jets or Phoenix. Not sure if they have the models you're after, but have a browse on their website.

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

Quoting Profcalvin (Reply 16):

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.

Fantastic collection, and I like the cabinet!

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:

Zvezda Tu154M - Aeroflot
Welsh Models Tu154M - Syrian Arab Airways ... to become AZAL Azerbaijan Airlines
Doyusha YS-11 - ANA ... to become Asian Spirit

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!  silly  I'll try and get around to posting some pictures of my other non kit models soon.

The 3 units are from IKEA. It would be better if they had an extra shelf, as I'm out of space.

The sign on the top says 'No metal objects to be carried in this compartment'. It is from a derelict Vickers Viscount - it was attached to a compartment door in the cabin.
