Your Airplane Models

Sat Aug 14, 2004 6:03 am

How many airplane models do you have and of which brand. Also what's your favorite model? My favorite is a A380 in airbus colors and a 717 midwest that i just bought yesterday at the Wisconsin State Fair.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

I personally like Herpa the best. I collected Schabak for a while, but decided that Herpa was a better quality. I like the 1:500 in Herpa. I only have two in my possestion. They are a Qatar Airways A320 and A330. I have about 20 on order though including the Christmas 2004 model of the A380.

140 1/400 scale models. They are on my own airport which me and my dad built using the herpa 1/500 scale buildings. We have 40 gates, 9 remotes, 1 maintainance facility and a cargo centre and a runway to accompany it. The whole thing is lighted using LED's and fibreoptic cable. I will get some pictures soon.

My 5 favourite planes:
1= Continental 777-200 N77014 'Peter Max' Dream jets
2= JAL Cargo n/c 747-200 JA8913 Big Bird
3= Sky Europe 737-500 OM-SEA 'Pretty lady on the side' Phoenix Models
4= ANA 747-400 JA8098 Big Bird
5= Cathay Pacific Cargo (hybrid colourscheme) 747-200 VR-HVZ Big Bird

I'm hoping to get some more very soon (when the funds become avaliable), this will include UA 777 n/c, PIA 777 n/c and Delta 757. I only collect aircraft and airlines that fly into the London airports and Manchester. This is my way of stopping myself buying every model realeased!!!  Big grin

Thanks Dave Big grin

Exactly like me. I used to collect Shabak until I was about 14, but when i found Herpa I only stuck with them.I have about 30 Herpa plane models. My Shabak Models I would like to sell, does anyone know where you can place free ads to sell plane models ?

Thanks, Concorde977, for shaing your fabulous collection. Thanks, too, for proving I am not alone (I just called wifey in to see your collection - she now has additional proof others share my 'disease').

I just packed up my collection for a household move (what a chore); about fifty Constellation variants, not including little guys such as the 1:600 die casts, that range from (approx) 1:144 scale to 1:50 scale. I built about half, others are cast aluminum travel agency-style pieces, display models and even a few old vintage Japanese tin toys, vintage Dinkey toys, Siku, etc. I still have about a dozen or so 1:120, 1:144 and 1:72 scale Connie kits I haven't even started. Hope my eyesight lasts.

I really like propliners and triple tails, so there are a few Breguet Dux Ponts, original DC-4Es, Airspeed Ambassadors, etc. mixed into the bunch. I'll try to post a couple of pics from a neighbor's computer (my scanner is shot). It's great you have display space; that 1:100 A380 must be a monster! Regards..Jack

Despite having been interested in airliners for nearly 30 years now, I have only recently started buying aircraft models. Consequently I only have two (sorry, couldn't tell you the make) - both 737's - one of Estonian Air and the other Norwegian. They were both bought on board the airlines concerned, and have pride of place on my desk at work (gets me some strange looks from my colleagues, but what the hey). I have a strange feeling that the collection could start growing rapidly...!

I have all kinds of scales, ranging from 1/600 Schabak to 1/100 Wooster. I have about 30 Schabaks, just started with Herpa Wings 1/500, I bought some Dragon Wings and Gemini Jets 1/400 recently, and I have 15 plastic models in 1/250 till 1/100 scale. I have recently made an apron and am looking for Herpa airport terminals and accessories to go with it. When buying models, I stick to the airlines and types I´ve flown on myself.

You're not alone with this disease...

I have over 500 1/500 Herpas, a still growing over 150 1/400 GeminiJets, and 10 1/200 Herpas... when I started collecting these buggers 3 years ago...

I've moved like 14 times in the last 8 years so it's hassle packing them up and unpacking them all the time. I've gotten six 24quart Rubbermaid ActionPacker cases to carry the individual airplane boxes. and the movers don't get a chance to touch the cases.

Wifey didn't understand it either. Now that we've bought a house, I'm hoping that I'll live in one place for more than a year, and that I get the two-car garage to build an airport. (Hey it's like model railroading)

For one of the recent moves, my wife had to pack all of the planes for me becuase I was out of the country, After packing the 50 or so 747's and 80 737's "Honey, I think I learned the difference between a 747 and 737. a 737 has 4 engines and that hump right?"  Smile

I have a small collection - mostly Schabak propliners. I also have a few oldies, small single-engine jobs from the 1940s. My favorite, however, is an old Dinky BOAC Comet 1 I picked up on eBay. I also like my small clay model from Colombia, complete with people and livestock hanging out the windows and sitting on the wing. (The model does not resemble any particular airliner.)

Despite my lifelong interest in airliners, I prefer to collect model buses and have a collection from some 45 different countries.

I have about 50 models (mostly 1:400 metal models) that I am looking to sell cheaply as I prepare to get married (and need money for the ring.) Some no longer have the boxes, but are all in great shape. I am looking to sell them for about $11 each, which would include shipping. If you are interested, feel free to e-mail me at [email protected] I am not sure if it is against forum policy to mention stuff like this, so sorry if I violated ther rules.

Plane models seem not to be a very popular thing to collect here in Spain, unfortunately. I´m always on the lookout for them when travelling, have bought most of them at Amsterdam Schiphol, and also quite a few via eBay.

That´s true but you can check the prices on the model manufacturer´s web site and compare with the price you´d have to pay including shipping. I won´t write addresses here as I don´t know if that´s allowed... but you can dop me a message through my profile if you want. I did make some great deals through auction sites, so keep an eye on them!

My models are plastic kits since I enjoy building them more than just buying and displaying them. It's in my opinion more enjoyable that way. But here it goes:

Minicraft: 1/144
American MD-82

I enjoy making kits also, but the problem is lack of time. I try to make nice displays, for example I made a PanAm Boeing Stratocruiser that goes with an original Boeing Stratocruiser ad from 1946, and a Junkers Ju-52 floatplane which I fixed on a glass plate with silicone kit and looks as if it´s floating on water. I still have four kits waiting for me: a Lufthansa A340 and KLM 747, A310 and DC10.

I also enjoy collecting airliner models, although I don't buy that many any more, not as much as I used to years ago. I've been building airliner models for 16 years.
The ones I have at home include:

At 1/144 scale:
Lufthansa A340 (Revell)
British Airways B747-400 (Revell)
Aer Lingus A330 (Revell)
United B767-300 (Revell)
Sabena A310 (Revell)
Sabena A330 (Revell)
Air France Caravelle (Airfix)
Air France A300 (Airfix)
American B757 (Minicraft)
American A300 (Airfix, same kit as my other A300, I bought the AA decals separately and converted that one to a 600 by making small winglets)
American B727-200 (MPC, same kit as Airfix)
American DC-6 (Minicraft)
TWA L-1011 (Airfix)
BOAC VC-10 (Airfix)

At 1/200 scale:
Delta B727-200
Northwest B727-200
Alaska B727-200
Virgin Express B737-400
American DC-10
American MD-80 and MD-87 (the two kits were in the same box)
American MD-11
Japan Airlines MD-11
American B777
Delta B767-200
Flying Tigers B747-200F
Aeroflot TU-154 (can't remember the company)
South African Airways B747-300
All, except the Aeroflot TU-154, are Hasegawa.

Only one at 1/100: Aeroflot IL-62 (can't remember the company, something from Eastern Europe)

At 1/125:
Air France A320 (Heller)
Air France B727-200 (Heller, not finished yet)

I still have to finish up the Air France 727. After I finish this one, the one I'm planning to buy next is the A380 from Revell at 1/144, it's a very hard model, the most difficult model I have ever made, it'll take me about a year to built it and paint it!
Others I would be interested in are the Aeroflot IL-96, either at 1/144 or 1/200, which ever I find first, and the Air France Constellation at 1/144.

I decided I would not buy that many models anymore otherwise my collection will become too big and I won't know what to do with all those models filling up my appartment. I don't buy one unless I'm sure I really want it, I think twice before I take the decision to buy!

Well, I have a ton of models in my collection. I have collected mostly Schabak models since I was a young boy, but I have started to collect other size models over the past few years.

This is actually more or less what I have: (and NO, I'm not exaggerating)

Schabak 1/600- 1,326 models (and counting)
Schabak 1/500- 37 models
Schabak 1/250- 44 models
Herpa 1/500- 459 models
Herpa 1/400- 45 models
Gemini Jets 1/400- 326 models (includes Phoenix/ Black Box/ Aero Classics)
Gemini Jets 1/ 250- 2 models
Dragon Wings 1/400- 288 models (includes Jet-X)
Star Jets 1/500- 41 models
Schuco 1/600- 47 models
Sky Marks - 56 models
Hogan Wings-65 models
Long Prosper-still counting

I also have quite a few large models made by PacMin, Atlantic-Models, and some which I have purchased from ebay. I also have some models by Corgi, really cheesey ones from when I was a kid made by Matchbox, Bachman and quite a few other brands. I also have some models that I have built my self, one of them being a 1/144 Airbus A380 (still not done yet).

Where do I have all of these models? In my basement. My 1/400 models with many of my 1/600 and 1/500 models are on display cases that I purchased at Ikea. The rest is on endless number of shelves attatched to the wall and some are also hanging from the ceiling. I have spent a lot of money on getting all of these models, It's actually related to my addiction to ebay!!!

The Schabak models are of course, in Schabak quality, but it would be hard to just stop collecting it all together since they continue to produce new models. The funny part is that I have a small number of doubles in my collection but when it comes to the 1/600 scale, I'll tolerate it if it means that I have to purchase one in order to get another rare model, (the way it is commonly done on ebay).

Here's my collection list:

1: My custom-painted kit models (I did these myself):
a) Doyusha 1:100 Boeing 747-100 painted in Smith Airways livery (metallic
green w/gold band and gold Celtic lettering; gold Celtic knot design on
green tail--similar to BA Colum; green engines w/gold bands)
b) Heller 1:125 Boeing 747-100 in older Smith Airways livery (metallic green
upper half fuselage, light green & gold cheatline; gold block lettering; gold
tail w/green shamrock; green engines)
c) L-1011 Tristar (unknown scale, Monogram)--formerly in Eastern colors,
now in experimental metallic red, blue, and gold livery, no titles

2: Dragon Wings 1:400: Airbus house colors A380

3: GeminiJets 1:400:
a) Aer Lingus 747-148 St. Patrick/Padraig (My personal favorite)
b) ATA L-1011
c) Virgin Atlantic (NC) 747-400 G-VBIG Tinker Belle in a tin (just got this
one yesterday at Collectors Aircraft Model shop at Heathrow Sheraton
Skyline hotel)
d) Aer Lingus A330-200 (do I still have this one?)

4) SkyMarks 1:200 (on order from Collectors Aircraft at LHR):
Virgin Atlantic (NC) Airbus A380

5): Seeking: A TWA (twin stripes) 747-131 (I'm hoping that Collectors Aircraft
can find one for me, since Starjets 1:500 is no longer making models). Any help would be appreciated in finding a decent TWA 747-100 twin stripes.
That is the one and only 747 I ever got to fly on, and that's my favorite type!

6): I'm also seeking (in 1:400 or 1:500):
Continental (OC) 727-200 (my first ever commercial flight)
US Airways 767-200
Old-airline 747-100/200: Pan Am, NW Orient, Braniff
Eastern L-1011
NW (NC) 747-200
