Ok guys. I'm really into model airplanes. Mostly civil, but some WWII American/German planes. Can you give me a list or say 3 or 4 good websites where I can start ordering from?

Specs:

Airliners: North America, Carribean, Europe for now. And also the WWII airplanes.

Thanks guys!
What gets measured gets done.

Wow, there are some really awesome collections out there! I have a 75 plane collection myself, been collecting seriously for 4 years now. The planes are all 1/400 scale, I also have SIA's Heritage Series 1-3 and Series 5. Unfortunately I don't have any pics of my collection now because I store them in their boxes, simply ran out of room trying to display everything! Anyway, I won't list my entire collection, but here's some of the special stuff I have:

SIA A380 from the inaugural flight
MAS B744 Hibiscus and B777 Heliconia
Dragonair 20th Anniversary.
All 3 QR Asian Games special liveries
OS A340 Wiener Philarmoniker
CI B738 "Aspic Lavender" and A333s "Fruits" and "Butterfly Orchid"
Finnair "Moomins"
Wunala Dreaming
Several *A liveried aircraft

I will post some images of my collection soon if I find the time.

The following online model shops have them in stock. Some models are unfortunately already sold out. But you can also try eBay. That's where I got some of my models.

I have an extensive collection (various scales) and brands, mainly Gemini Jets and Dragon Wings. Two of my prized models though are my Bader Models 1/200 scale CityBird MD-11 (Green) and Trans Caribbean DC-8 (old livery). My collection mainly consists of Douglas and McDonnell Douglas aircraft and special color schemes. I also have each Air Force operator or base of the C-17A this includes the recently released Royal Canadian Air Force CC-177.

I love collecting models as much as I love taking photos of aircraft, it's a sickness I tell ya!

That shot shows 24 feet of airplane models, 95 % hand built and hand painted, no mirrors yet.

Hand built! That is even more impressive!

My 8 nephews love coming up to this room and just googling everything.

I'm sure they do. I could easily spend many days looking at those models myself  Smile !

My 1:1000 collection in it's entirety. What I still want to get in the future is Herpa's 1:1000 airport display mat and airport buildings/accessories. And then I want to add runway and taxiway lighting. Will look nice!  Smile

My collection is'nt big, but I'm working on it. I prefer the Herpa 1:500 scale, but I also have other scales and manufacturas, such as Schaback:

With few exceptions I only collect planes and airlines I have travelled with myself:


My newest planes from my last trips...




A wondeful version of a SAS DC-10 made by ERTL. retracting landing gear...








Wonderful Pan Am ! The big 727 is a Hasegawa modelkit that I have glued and painted togehter myself. Fairly good result...





These are some really old models, from my childhood, when I was playing with them and keeping them in shape was'nt the top priority. You can see that some of the paint chipped off.... But check out the great British Airways 1011 and the funny looking Matchbox version of Airbus 300 Air France. Funny wheels on that one...

I abolutely agree with you. 727 looked great in that livery. This is one of my favourite too, together with Iraqi Airways livery

A better picture of the Dreamliner. This is the 1:200 limited edition one from the Boeing Store. It's a quite nice model.

I am amazed by the details of the 1:1000 scale models. Compare this with the average quality of Schabak models at scale 1:600. I started my diecats model collection with Schabak about 10 years ago but pretty soon switched over to Herpa Wings.

Quoting Mortyman (Reply 72):
With few exceptions I only collect planes and airlines I have travelled with myself

That was my initial idea but it didn't take too long before I started to buy other models too... couldn't resist the temptation  Wink

I have just unpacked and put on display all my models again (as I just inaugurated a room in my house which will be dedicated to aviation) and took pictures of them all, so I will be able to post some pics here shortly. I have Herpa Wings and StarJets on scale 1:500 and Dragon Wings, Gemini Jets, Herpa Wings and one or two other brands on scale 1:400.

CALTECH love the models man! Especially like seeing some of the rarer ones such as the YF-23, Su-47, F-16XL or Scamp, Lightning, etc.

Forgive the classic camera phone image quality. These four aren't the only model airplanes lying around, but they're basically the only ones that matter since the others are either broken, crappy, or being sold.

New release by Hogan: For the first time ever a B747-400 in the official Boeing House Colours in the 1:1000 scale. The model is extremely realistic for such a small scale, especially the landing gear!

Hogan has also just released Air Force One VC-25 in the 1/1000 scale. They will also release the B777-200 and -300 1/1000 scale in Boeing House colours shortly. (More to add to my collection!)
