The Boeing Store has a great collection of Boeing related models (and some space stuff).

Otherwise, you could probably try the this website:

http://www.hoganwings.com/search.php?type=aircraft

They seem to have a big range. Apart from my expensive 1/200 scale Concordes which I got from the UK, the rest are from the Boeing store. Boeing Store service is very good as well.

One of the best sites has to be:

I bought a few models there………..1:100, the expensive stuff.
A trustworthy site.

I just bought some stuff from http://www.flyingmule.com/ . Found them on eBay. Their prices appear pretty good, and I can let you know how the shipping is when my models arrive.

http://www.jetwaymodels.com & http://www.airparadigm.com

I just placed a few orders with airparadigm from their sale page, which is the best I've ever seen. They ship quickly!

Jetway Models is also excellent, shipping is a bit slower.

Both have the best prices I've seen on the net.

http://www.adamjets.com seems to have everything that's sold out everywhere else but it's quite pricey.

One thing with Air Paradigm is that they do not inspect the models before they are sent. You run the risk of getting an imperfect model. While they have an exchange policy, you'll have to pay for the shipping back to Air Paradigm for they to exchange it, which could also be imperfect or damaged in some way.

Air Paradigm are well priced - their models are cheap, and they do ship quickly. But if you're like me and extremely fussy with the models I get, I'd pay a little extra if it meant that the retailer will inspect the model on my behalf before shipping it out.

I apreciate your comment. I recently purchased a JetX Swiss AVROJ-100 and the tailfin was busted when I received it. I was not a happy camper about that.

Another good place to buy models is http://www.airwaysgifts.com/index.html. This gentleman is retired airline employee. Models are hand made of wood. I highly recommend. He has other items besides models.
