The Model Aircraft Collection Thread (Pics)

Fri Aug 24, 2007 4:44 am

Hello! Its been a while since I've seen a thread on here regarding every ones model aircraft collection so I thought I'd start a new one up. Feel free to post pics of your own collection. As for me, here's my mine:


Will you watch the Cleveland Browns and the Detroit Lions on Sunday? Only if coach Eric Mangini resigned after a loss.

CLEwatcher - someone likes his Northwest as much as I like my BA!

Here's mine. Cabinet's starting to get a bit crowded...



I've also got a 1:400 Swiss MD-11 and 1:500 Qatar Airways A332, because I've flown on both.

The list - this was a Javascript experiment I knocked up a while back.

They're all 1:200. About 3/4 of them are Star Jets, a couple of Hogan Wings, one lonely Gemini Jets, and the rest Herpa.

Thanks The bmi A320 is made by Star Jets. As far as I know, they went bust a few years back, so finding some of their models can involve a fair number of Google searches and trawling through smaller retailers. You're in luck though - airlinemuseum.com has the bmi A320 in stock.  Smile

Quality's substantially better than the Herpas - it's a shame they went under. (Although, I bought every 1:200 they made, so it saved me a fortune...)

Just got my first 1:200 Gemini Jets model last week - the BA A320. Now that's a nice model. Die-cast metal with antennas, rubber tyres, even clear plastic beacons that catch the light, and the printing is incredibly detailed. Well worth getting to the nearest model shop and asking to see one - but have your money with you, because you won't want to leave such a gorgeous plane in the shop.

I want one with wheels, so it'll sit on the shelf - whiich means another shelf, which means another cabinet. Which means more empty space to fill with planes  Wink My wish list is getting longer all the time.

Hey  Smile I had a quick look at your profile - do you have a pic with all 250 in?  Smile

You found the "Add smilies" link - just to the left of that is an "Add Images" link. Click that and a pop-up appears. You then click "THUMB" or "FULL SIZE" beside the image you want.

It should be obvious, but I missed it too. Just spent 10mins going through the help and searching Site Related, trying to remember how I managed to do it! Big grin It should really be in the Posting Help.

WAOW. Dang. That's a nice collection. I really love the way it looks when you have so many from each airline and group them together.

Do people here collect according to themes, generally? Particular airline, type, whatever? Me, I seem to have several general themes in my mind, and a new model these days usually fits into one:

  • "BA World tails" (especially on a 757), though any BA is good.
  • "Concorde". I love my Hogan Concorde so much that I'll probably get BA Landor and British, as well as the new and old Air France - and they'd better do G-BOAD in BA/SQ, or else! - so there's another theme waiting to run.
  • Despite my penchant for 757s and Concordes, I want more types. A Phoenix 1:200 Tu134 may be my next purchase.
  • I'm also interested in having a good geographical spread; I've realised in the last couple of weeks that I've not got anything from Africa (no, BA Botswana tail doesn't count) or Central/South America, but even an airline from a new country is good.

But I'd sell my grandmother for a decent 1:200 Swiss MD-11. She's a cantankerous old bat, I'd sell her anyway, but don't tell the guy with the MD-11 that  Wink

I wonder if you and some of you other guys would consider taking some string (floss-type, but a bit stronger) - maybe two pieces for each a/c, cross them diagonally under the a/c, then take the 4 ends up over the a/c and tie them in a way so that they could be hung from a ceiling (I would say with sticky tack, but definitely something stronger). I'm sure it could be done, and in an aesthetically pleasing way, too. Just my  twocents

This is such a great post & I'm so glad I came on this forum page looking as I've been wanting to follow some of my a.netters to see what you guys/gals do setting up your model displays, which type of models you like to buy, etc..

I have just started my collection after wanting to do so for many years. I have:
1:400 scale Gemini
Delta 762 Spirit of Delta
Delta 763 late 90s scheme
Delta 777 Current
Delta 752 Current
Delta MD11 late 90s scheme

AeroMexico 777 chrome
AeroMexico 788 new color scheme

1:400 scale Dragon Wings
Continental 764

I have many more to go as well as wanting to get all the models for each airline a/c I've been on.

Does anyone have a favorite online estore where they make the majority of their purchases?

Particular preferences for certain airlines when picking between Gemini, Herpa, Dragon and etc.. ?

Thoughts about setting up your own hybrid model airport?


What are some good sites to purchase airport equipment like jetways, stairs catering trucks and etc..? They are not the easiest things to find as most are sold out?

No, they aren't moveable (retractable). But it would have been nice if they were!

I meant wether they "hang" like the do on real planes when in the air, not if they're retractable  Wink Like the A330s rear wheelpair is lower than the front pair when in the air.

Sorry, I misunderstood your question Smile No, the only model I have where this is the case is my Herpa Premium Series KLM 747-400.

Hey Guys, I have a total to 211 models (all 1:400) scale, and just arrived ( still in the box, GeminiJets 1:400 airport terminal and also the mat that is associated with it, and another 7 more aircraft models on the way as we speak  Smile ) My pride and joy is my A380 collection, I have all airlines that have ordered it except China Southern...still hunting for that one ! )

By the way, is the best place to get Gemini Jets still the main branch down at Windy Road in Vegas by the airport ?

Best places to buy for me are: UML Hobby in Hong Kong (Official Distributor for DragonWings), www.aviationmegastore.com (you get tax free if outside the EU), and www.aviationcentreberlin.de (also tax free outside the EU) other sources might include inflight sales from the respective airlines  Smile

Regards, JetMech

Thank you very much. There are more, and even more yet to build. The white and red L-1011 is a TWA bird. That shot shows 24 feet of airplane models, 95 % hand built and hand painted, no mirrors yet. Glad you like them. My 8 nephews love coming up to this room and just googling everything. It is our hangout, I am trying to build the upper deck now, will be a airport ramp, 24 feet long by 4 feet wide. Once again, thanks.
UNITED Would Be Nice

(you get tax free if outside the EU)

Yeah i wondered about that. I was up there just recently and bought models worth about €110. Next time, shall i go to the tax-refund counter at AMS to get the tax refunded? I thought about it but then decided not to, also because i have no idea where that counter is, and wether there even is one. Any AMS local might be able to help me out here.
