I know lots of you guys out there collect model airplanes. Me too! So what planes do you have. Post pictures as well. Here are mine. The last ones are sort of toys, the kind you get at an airport gift shop. The rest are at my Gemini Jets 1:400 scale airport.

My brand-new Qantas A380. 1:400 scale Gemini Jets.

Nice collection. Ya gotta love the 380!! I bought that Qantas model today. The LanChile 340 is a nice model. You need an AirCanada 777. Do you have the complete Gemini airport.

Yup, I do have the whole airport, but I only have room for 2 out of the 3 terminal sections. The AC 777 is at the top of my wish list.

I have the 787 model you have. I love that model. Not a bad price either. I have slowed down on the Gemini Jets collecting. They are pumping out too many for my wallet anymore. They are by far a great company. I am watching their new 1/200 series. They look nice. I noticed a Republic DC-9 that needs to join my collection.

I have reverted back to building them. I have found the love again in building my own.

In my view, you can't go wrong with Gemini Jets or Phoenix. Not sure if they have the models you're after, but have a browse on their website.

Currently I have A lot of herpa's and they're all 1:500.

I am a totally noob with model airplanes and I don't know what kind of companies and stuff there are. I was wondering if some of you guys could recommend some companies and a good scale( like I said I only have 1:500 so don't know if the others are good or not) to get at not too bad of a price. Also maybe a good place to get them. My dream is to maybe have a full model airport some day. Thanks

BTW, currently I have:

AF 380
EY 380
AA 772
JL 772
AF 773
QF 744
JL 762
LH 343
QR 332
LX 332
CO 764
Boeing 787 Dreamliner Colors
CO 752 (winglets)

Quoting Profcalvin (Reply 16):

What a good scale is will depend on how much room you have to store them, and how much detail you want on your model. For me, 1:400 is the perfect size - not too small, but not too big either, and there is sufficient detail on a 1:400 scale with which I'm happy. I also have one 1:500 scale Herpa, but I find that they are a bit small. I notice that you also have a 737 in 1:500, but that would be so small that some detail might get missed.

Admittedly, I wouldn't know which model manufactures make good 1:500 scale models, as I only buy 1:400. Of the 1:400 scale manufacturers, I'd rate Phoenix Models as the best.

Fantastic collection, and I like the cabinet!

I collect mainly kit aircraft in scales of 1:144 or larger, I've got a huge number of these waiting until I'm bored and need something to do. I hardly ever build them out of the box as I only model those exact planes I've flown on, and TBH I've never actually completed one, as several are still awaiting printed decals:

1:72:

Revell D228-200 - German Navy ... to become SATA Air Accores
Airfix F27 - Channel Express
Matchbox DHC6 - various ... to become Isles of Scilly Skybus
Revell EC135 Eurocoptor
Mil-6 - Aeroflot ... keeping MIB

1:100:

Yak 40 - Aeroflot ... keeping MIB
An-24 - Aeroflot ... keeping MIB

1:144:

Airfix A300B2 - Air France x 2 ... to become Lufthansa & Monarch
Airfix A310-200 - KLM ... to become SATA Internacional A310-300
Revell A320-200 - Lufthansa
Revell A321-100/200 - Swiss, Lufthansa
Revell A340-300 - Austrian/SAS ... to become LAN Chile
Revell BAe 146QT - TNT ... painted and awaiting Asian Spirit 146-100 decals
Revell BAe RJ85 x 2 - Eurowings/FlyBe
Airfix B707-300 - BA ... to become Air Malta B720B
Airfix B727-200 - PanAm/LH ... painted and awaiting Syrian Arab Airways decals
Minicraft B737-400 - BA
Revell B737-800 - KLM
Airfix B747-100/200 - BA ... to become Syrian Arab Airways B747-SP
Revell B747-400 - BA ... to become Oasis Hong Kong
Revel B747-400 - Lufthansa ... to become KLM
Airfix DC-9-32 - Iberia/KLM ... to become something!
Airfix DC-10-30 - American Airlines/SAS ... being painted and assembled as SkyJet DC-10-15
Airfix DC-10-30 - American Airlines/SAS ... to become Varig Brasil MD-11
Zvezda Il-86 - Aeroflot ... to become Aeroflot Don
Airfix L1011 - Cathay Pacific/TWA ... to become Caledonian
Zvezda Tu154M - Aeroflot
Welsh Models Tu154M - Syrian Arab Airways ... to become AZAL Azerbaijan Airlines
Doyusha YS-11 - ANA ... to become Asian Spirit

There's a whole bunch more than those, I'm considering selling some as I'm never going to have time to make them all... but I just keep buying more!  silly  I'll try and get around to posting some pictures of my other non kit models soon.

The 3 units are from IKEA. It would be better if they had an extra shelf, as I'm out of space.

The sign on the top says 'No metal objects to be carried in this compartment'. It is from a derelict Vickers Viscount - it was attached to a compartment door in the cabin.

That is really cool! I've tried assembling AirFix models before, but I always mess up when painting the aircraft.

The revell Germany kits are well made and inserting fuselage plugs becomes much easier...It was an expensive proposition, though....It is by far my favorite especially since the model sports the registration of the actual one that I flew on...D-AIHR. And even better, the day before I flew on it, I was able to capture her lifting off from Munich...j

Looking good!   The biggest Airbus I've flown with is an A340-300 with Scandinavian and Air Canada. Would love to try the -600.. they have lavatories downstairs, right? It's a beautiful looking bird!

Impressive collection I must say! I only have a few.. should start collecting more aircraft. They look good! On a sidenote, I noticed that your glass cupboards are identical to the one I have... IKEA all the way

Interesting!  Smile I've tried sitting on the very last row on board a Delta 767-300ER and I remember the weird feeling when the aircraft turned on ground. Maybe not as noticable as an A346 but still a lot.

I specifically collect 1:400 scale. I have around 250 of them at the moment. Here are some of mine:

Loving the cabinet!

I have about 150 GJ/AC/Phoenix - mainly 1/400s but I've just started getting into the 1/200's.

The GJ 1/200 BA Tristar 500 is a beauty and have just added the 1st Choice 1/200 XL Airways 737-900ER which is great!

Also have an Open Skies 752, U2 A319, Iberia A320, MON A321 and FlyBe Dash 8 Q400 on the 1/200 side - problem is I'm running out of space!

Also, here is an interesting comparison between my Qantas A380 and British Airways 747. The A380s beastly wings are very noticeable, in comparison to the 747s graceful swept back wings.

In the UK I can reccomend the following:

- Aviation Retail Direct
- Classic Aero Models
- Airspotters

Sometimes it works out cheaper to buy from the US and have them shipped over. There are some good retailers therewhich I have used:

- EZ Toys
- Air Paradigm (but they don't stock Aeroclassics)
- Adam Jets

What is also noticeable is that Gemini seems to have an issue with their 747 No 1 engines taking off before the rest of the plane does. I have a Gemini Jets QF 744ER with exactly the same fault.

Your photo does, however, show just how much better looking the 747 is compared to the A380. I was quite surprised by the size difference, though. The A380 seems to make the 747 look tiny in comparison.

Here's my collection. I built these all 5-10 years ago when I was young so they are not too impressive. I have about 20 more to be built but I have no idea when it will happen. These are all kits. The top shelf with the civilian airliners is mostly 1:100 scale. The bottom shelf is mostly 1:72.

Friend in Wuhan gave this to me, no idea how she got a hold of this one. But I'm glad she gave it to me Big grin

Sorry for the bad quality of the photos...taken on my phone...

BTW what's the best site/shop in Australia to get some models? I'm particularly interested in an QF A380, and an A345/A346 model (not fussed what carrier)

Pete, try Triking Model Cars on Hay Street or City Models (Piccadilly Arcade) in Perth. They are the ones I go to whenever I buy models. Perth Hobby Centre (Murray Street) also has a smallish collection of mainly Gemini Jets, while City Models have stacks of Phoenix and Gemini. Triking is also good but sometimes they're a bit slow to get new releases. Last time I was at City Models about a month ago they still had the GJ QF A380 there.
