I have a love for aircraft that can not be explained here. It has led me to a life of service (23 years so far) in the active USAF as a crew chief (well, it has been some years since my wrench turning days due to promotions). F-106's, F-4's, FB-111's, F-15's, and F-16's are the ones I have had the honor of painting my name on!!!
I am going to retire soon and wanted to start gathering information on the best aircraft models to buy. Cost is not an option. I wish to dedicate a room (wing?) of my home for military and civil (commercial airlines) aircraft. I would like scales bigger than the "kids" models (ie: military jets will not be smaller than 1-32, I think those are the big ones???) and the biggest commercial boeing/airbus (etc.) that I can find.
Really don't know much about the hobby but hope you can help. Any info and/or web sites helpful. Info on those looking to sell collections also welcome! (hey, I was born to fix 'em!)
