Very nice! How many models do you have total? Most the same scale? Great AC poster, I've seen it at Aviation World in Richmond, haven't bought it yet though.

BTW, if you're in YLW, where do you find them all? Online or do you drive down to Vancouver? The only store that I know of in the Okanagan is BC Hobby and Shave across from Orchard Park. They have a few models there, quite cheap too.

I've got a 1:200 scale A380F coming (Hogan Wings). I looked at Sky Marks and their model didn't have the same quality.

So this is the biggest in my small 1:200 scale collection currently consisting of:

- Boeing 787 Dreamliner
- Boeing 747-8 Intercontinental
- Boeing 747-8F
- British Aircraft Corporation/Aerospatiale Concorde-100 (British Airways)
- Airbus A380F (new Airbus colours)

Would like to add to the 1:200 collection:
- Boeing 777-200LR
- Boeing 777F
- Boeing 777-300ER
- Boeing 747-8i BBJ (if it has been made)
- Airbus Corporate Jet A380 "Flying Palace" (if it is made)
- Aerospatiale Alliance SST (it was made, but by who - and where to get it now).

I particularly want to get the last one, but who made it - and where could I get it now? Below are the only photos I've ever seen of the model:



Does anyone know who made it - and if it is still available?

you could easily find them on ebay, airplaneshop.com or some other aviation hobby site. it cost anywhere from USD$30-60 to set up a small 1:500 apron

and thank you for your compliments!  Smile
