Flight Miniatures - Post A Pic Thread

I recently discovered the Flight Miniatures models on the Airline Superstore site and I was really happy with their quality for such a low price. Most of their models are under $25 (a lot under $20) yet they look like a model that would cost atleast twice as much.

I have seen threads on here about Flight Miniatures, and some have mentioned they collect them, so I thought I'd start a thread where we could post some pictures of our collections.

We could also extend this to other plastic snap-fit model lines as well like Hogan and Skymarks.

The Whole Fleet:


American Mad Dog:


CO 737-800:


AirTran 717-200 (Old Colors)


I wish Flight Miniatures made the AirTran 717 in the new colors as well. So far no dice on that. I'd get it from Sky Mars but it is a different scale, and it is nice to have all 1:200 models, then you get to see how they compare in size in real life.

I like the Delta MD-80. That one catches my eye everytime I go to the Flight Miniatures site. The Mad Dog looks great in the old Delta colors and the new as well.

I really hope FM comes out with the new AirTran livery.

They already have, and they also have a 717 in the Elton John scheme:

Those are made by Sky Marks I believe and have a scale of 1:130. I'm hoping that Flight Miniatures comes out with a 1:200 AirTran New Livery. They have the old one in 1:200, just not the new one.

I just bought a TWA 727 and TWA L1011. I picked them up from the Operation Liftoff store, in St. Louis (they sell TWA & Ozark stuff for charity) for $15 each. I had to give close to $30 for my NWA DC-9, at someplace online. I wish they made a 707, a CV-880, and a DC-8.

The 744s look really nice. I was going to buy the A380 in the A House colors, but I think I'm going to wait for the 744 B house colors to come out. And I'm guessing Skymarks will eventually have 747-8 model.

Just got my 1:200 747-400 (Boeing House Colors) in the mail...makes all my other 1:200 models look tiny! A really beautiful model of a beautiful aircraft.

I'm going to try to collect the entire Boeing family in 1:200 scale.

My next purchase is going to be a 757...1:200 of course. And then comes the dilema. I want to either get a Continental or a US Airways (new colors). Sky Marks is the only one who has the NC but in 1:150.
I guess I just have to wait for Flight Miniatures to update their fleet and hope for US Airways new colors. Those look awesome on the 757.

Wow! What a great idea for a thread...I can't believe I missed this one...

This pic doesn't show the new addition to my collection (well, because I haven't received it yet), but it's N534JB, the jetBlue A320 with the "Windows" tail pattern. That only leaves one more and I'll have the whole set!

FM just started offering them. http://www.flightminiatures.com/fm_arrive.html?EM102506

Quoting Mke717spotter (Reply 1):

No pics. available, but in addition to your SkyMarks YX 717, I also have 2 of the 3 FL 717 models (I passed on the Elton John one) and the FL 73G lined up on my window sill.

As far as FM models are concerned (again, no pics. available) I have:
FL 717 (OC)
FL 73G (OC, Note: no actual FL 73G rolled out with this scheme)
EA 727 (final scheme)

I wish FM offered the EA 727 in the white/Whisperjet scheme.

My main beef w/FM is that their DC-9 molds look bloated and the tail design's not quite right.
