Maybe some sort of C-17

Of course, I have not more room for any of these.

Hey 767333ER!
At my local 1/400 store are all of your Wishlist except for the Delta A350. The CS100 is in primer/BBR house colours. The 727 is Alaska 727-100 'prospector' colours and they did have a Pan Am 727-200 with full 'Pan American' titles but I don't recall seeing it on my last visit. For C-17s, they have a choice of USAF! Kuwait AF and Indian AF. They have had the Qatar AF one but it was sold ages ago.
You have a great selection mate.
I just ordered a Royal Australian Navy HS748 from Aeroclassics.... Wish they would hurry up with the promised East West F28!!!
Cheers,
Bunumuring.

I normally build models from kits, but there are no shops to buy the needed supplies to continue to build them in the country I'm currently working in, so I turned to the pre-painted and pre-assembled die-cast and resin kits in 1/200. I'm going with the old standard of collecting every bird I've traveled on in 1/200th, and collecting birds with special/significant liveries in 1/400th for the sake of space.

My 1/200th collection as it stands right now, about 1/3 complete:

I collect 1:400 scale diecast, spanning from 1927 - today (it's SFO based) and 1:600 SFO 1970, which are my dioramas also.The total is around 160, and a few 1:400 balsa wood models (Boeing Model 40, 247D, B-47E Stratojet, Convair B-36J) are made by myself. There are forums dedicated to this hobby that I can show you if you'd like.
He's coming right at us!

I used to build plastic kits as a kid, but got into collecting 1:400 scale diecast airliners about 2003. I now have hundreds of them, mainly around the British & Irish classics theme but plenty other stuff from around the world too. Also some 1:200 and 1:72 military in a much smaller collection.

My collection varies in scale and quality.

Since my last post I have added:

717-200 QantasLink
727-200(Adv) Delta (Ron Allen livery)
767-300ER Hawaiian

And I would also like to add that my Delta MD-90 is also painted in the Ron Allen livery. I almost bought a CS100 model instead of either the 717 or the 767, but it was painted in Swiss and I decided I would wait for an Air Canada CS300 or a Delta CS100 which would mean more to me. It was also way too expensive.
