Model Airplanes

Fri Dec 19, 2008 5:11 am

Where can I find some diecast model aircraft. I have a small collection that I haven't added to in years . . . I believe that my 757 is about 2 inches in legnth - I think that is 1:1600, but im not sure.
Thanks,

This belongs in the Hobby section. But theres some sites out there like www.diecastairplane.com that has tons of different scales and makes and http://www.airplanereplicas.com/ that is dedicated to nothing but 1/400 scale diecast.

Be very careful using any of those die cast forums, especially 400 scale hangar. They are managed by actual manufacturers and you can easily be manipulated by their biased opinions and comments. In fact, casual participants can be "cronies" of these manufacturers. I suggest going to the GeminiJets web site and go into their retailers section. Contact the retailers directly as most of them carry all brands of die cast airliners and let them give you their unbiased recommendations.

I've found that DiecastAirplane.com is pretty good and I've had good service from them.


While we're on the subject, can anyone comment on this thread I started?
