For my birthday the other day, I received my first two plane models, made by Herpa in 1:400 scale.
One is a US 747-400, N171UA, and the other is A Delta 777-232, N865DA.
I haven't really seen or held many models in my life, so I have little to compare it to, but I am impressed with their quality.
The 1:400 scale is a perfect size for you to see the plane well, and not take up too much space in your home if your collection grows.
Now I jsut want to get a 757-200, but ATA's 20th anniversary edition (N520AT), which I know my local shop has.
I really don't know what you folks talk about when you discuss models, but I'd love to learn and take any advice from you folks. What other factors in models do you enjoy that I should look into?
