Looking For 1:100 Commercial Jet Models

Fri May 30, 2008 9:10 am

Hi Everyone!
I saw some really nice models at the McCarran Airport here in Vegas today. I wrote down some of the Model Makers : Larson Collection; Broadbent Collection; Dondero Collection. Can anyone tell me where to find these people on the web???

Any help would be appreciated.

Quoting NwaLAS (Thread starter):
Larson Collection; Broadbent Collection; Dondero Collection

I think those were the people that donated the models to the exhibit, not the
manufacturer of the models. If I recall, most of the models are either PACMIN,
AirJet or other variants of the same kind.

Hi, try EBAY. Use the search engine and type " 1/100 airline model " be sure to check the "search title and description " box. Just about anything you could want can be found.

Happy Hunting!!

Try the Boeing store as well - they are costly, but high quality.

go on ebay and search for "pacmin" "pacific miniatures" "space models" and "atlantic models" a little pricey but they are without a doubt the best models out there. Anything with the description "hand carved mahagony" is a crap. those models are cheap and generally look bad. also be ware there is a lot of terrible knock off models coming out of Hong Kong, those look even worse then the mahagony ones. I still cringe when i think of the 787 that came out of there.
If it was said by us, then it must be true.

Hi Everyone....

Thank you for the tips. The Atlantic Models are nice with a huge selection from many airlines. I am also going to look at E-Bay...so THANKS TERRY for the heads-up on that suggestion.

I think my first choice is either going to be a Hughes Airwest 727-200 or a WestJet 737-800 with winglets.

I'll post a photo!
