I just would be inerested in knowing which scale for airliner models is the most popular in terms of different models? 1:100, 1:200, 1:400, 1:500 or any others?

I have about 90, 1:600 Schabaks. I think that the most popular are the 1.500 Herpas and 1.250 models. I have 2 1.200 models. I dont like the Herpa 1.500s because they are too expensive and some look realy fake.

My favorite is 1:200. Not to big or small or expensive.

I like the 1:200's snap fit. I have the following airliners in this scale:

Ansett Australia 747-300
British Airways 747-400 o/c
BWIA L1011-500 o/c
Cathay Pacific 747-400 n/c
Emirates 777-200
Qantas 747-400
United 747-400
Virgin 747-400 n/c

As you can see i like 747's! I tryd to get all the 747's that i'd been on but i ran out of money! So i just get the ones i realy like the look of. Also i went on the BWIA tristar a few years ago and had to buy it!

I like the Schabak 1:600s because they take up the least space and I can make a lifesize airport with them. To make what is the equivelant of a 10,000 foot runway, I need about 15 feet as compared to probably about 20 feet for a 1:500.

I have probably 100 Schabak models in my basement on my airport set up and I will definitely be getting more once the bills are paid off.

The Herpa 1/500 models are my favorites. Like HlywdCatft already mentioned, you can have lots of different types and airlines when collecting small models, without having to own a complete hangar yourself.

I've started collecting just over a year ago and have 16 1/500 models at the moment. Also an A320 and and Avro RJ85 in 1/100 scale hanging on the ceiling.

Best regards,

I specifically like herpa 1:5oo and those were the first scale models that i ordered from 'The Airplane Shop'. They have a wide variety of different scales and brands.
Last month i wanted to try something different so i ordered some schabak models. I was very disappointed !
They were sloppily done and were a complete lost of money to me. Herpa are a bit more expensive but i prefer to pay a little extra for quality. I also bought the airport set and it is amazing !

For civil aircrafts I prefer 1:144 scale.
For military fighter planes (I have a few) 1:72 scale.
