Mine is a Revell 767-300ER originally released in the UA & AA decals years ago, but built up in the Flying Colors HA scheme.

All my airliner models are these easy-assemble ones bought from airports. I think my best one at all is the 1:32 F4-F Phantom. Its the Revell model and Im trying to put it together very carefully and professionally. I have finished the cockpit with catapult seats so far . . .

I have an ATR72 in the colours of Flitestar, a South African domestic carrier that first introduced the A320 to this market and went belly up in April 1994.

I don't know the scale but the fuselage is almost 11 inches long.

    In the realm of plastic models (kits), I have two favorites:

    Out of production:
    The VEB (East Germany) Tupolev Tu-114. Molded in what appears to be 1/100 scale, this is a BIG model, with a wingspan of about 18". The wheels turn, bogies pivot, and nosewheel steers. Kit was molded in shiny white, silver, black, and clear. Early Aeroflot decals were included, as were a tube of cement, clay for the nose, and nylon for the antenna. A very impressive kit of an equally impressive aircraft.

    In production:
    TOKO Antonov An-72/74. This 1/72 scale kit has everything! The interior (flight deck as well as cargo bay) is fully detailed. Rear hatch opens. The cowlings can be placed open to display the engines. The jet engine nacelles are fully detailed, an assembly comprising more than 15 pieces! Control surfaces (except flaps) move. Detailing is crisp and accurate. Tires are made of rubber! A fantastic kit!
    The aeroplane has unveiled for us the true face of the earth. -Antoine de Saint-Exupery
