Uh, like Christmas is on the 25th and it's only the 8th (well maybe the 9th in most places). Exactly how much control over time, space and Santa Claus do you expect us to believe that you have? I think I'm at least in the same time zone as you if not the same ATC and I haven't see no Santa Claus. Has anybody else reading this thread gotten anything from Santa yet this year? That's as crazy as what just happened to me. I woke up to find that while I was asleep, some dickweed broke into my house, drank all my milk, ate most all of my cookies and then leaves a big chunk of carbon with a ribbon tied to it on my floor. What kind of sicko is that? Anyway, Santa Claus is coming to town on the 25th.

That was a kit? If so, awesome Erik!
I used to think of the Tu-154 as an inferior Russky 727 knock-off. Now that I'm older (and the cold war is over) I'm beginning to really appreciate this airplane. I love how the #2 intake looks like a 7-two with a hush kit and the antenna mount on top the stabilizer looks like an exaggerated B-707. After that tragic crash outside Smolensk, I learned more about this airplane and it's outstanding performance. I now consider the TU-154 as a beautiful airplane most worthy of Tri-Jet worship.

Thanks! When I saw it in the store, I knew that it was the one I was going to buy. I agree with your (current) assessment- it's definitely a worthy trijet!

Oh! That explains it. Sure, different time zone, different calender.   

Ya know, I was so wrapped up in my little rant there, I really should have mentioned what nice models you have! I love that AA livery as it reminds me of Airstream travel trailers.

Man, you must be livin' right to get gifts like that!

I have friends who fly both of these. My dad always referred to SW planes as "Flying Cigars" He passed before the blue livery came out
a US ERJ (1/100 it's the same size as the 744):

Hello!

I recently bought a Hogan AA B777-200 'Susan Komen'1/200. After I assembled it and glued the landing gear on, I noticed that the model had GE 90 engines and not RR Trents like all AA B777s have. They look way too large for a -200 and they are exactly the same engines as are on my Skymark B777-300ER model. So my question is, can you order 1/200 RR Trent 800s anywhere? Call me perfectionist, but the discrepancy is really bothering me.

Thanks!

As a fellow perfectionist, I'm afraid that the answer to that is .... no. Gemini Jets 200 probably gets the closest to having Trents, but none of them look exactly like Trents.

Anyway, I've added the model that I've wanted for a very, very long time to my collectioon at last: BigBird 1:400 Cathay Pacific B747-267B VR-HKG in the old 1980s green and white stripes livery. In my view, BigBird 400 have the best 747 moulds in that scale than any other manufacturer. Too bad they aren't around anymore ...



So now, here's my CX fleet as it stands at present:


Just a small fleet at the moment, but I intend to add to it as soon as I can afford to.

I see so little KLM………

Mmm, when it comes to model aircraft, size matters--> I reckon. 1:100 is what I fancy!
I don´t put mine in a glass showcase……….they fly around the house, if you like:

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/3820316/Screenshot%202011-03-25%20om%2021.20.40.jpg

The hands you see were part of a temporary solution………we have modified the suspension of the MD-11 since then.

Compared to some of you, my collection of 4 aircraft looks a bit pale!


Cheers,

Everyone seems to have very nice collections!

I have over 300 aircraft (various scales) in my collection (sorry no photos), mainly DAC, and MDC aircraft. I have recently added several Aero Classic "Baby" DC-9's to the collection; Air Florida, Evergreen International, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines (Delivery scheme), Continental Airlines (black meatball), and Northwest (90's livery). I am currently awaiting the delivery of my Southwest Airlines MD-95 (717-200) from Atlantic Models.

I know collecting aircraft models is a sickness........HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA, but it is a fun one that not only can us the collectors enjoy, but everyone we share our collections with as well.

One question - how do you all store your aircraft? Unfortunately I keep my collection in their boxes as I'm worried about them getting damaged, such as by uv rays.

I've been trawling the internet for a loooooong time looking but am yet to find one (I did find Gemini once but I cannot justify paying $200+ for a model airplane)

Do you want to paint and build a plastic model or are you looking for a metal one?
This isn't where I parked my car...

The Airplane Shop sells them under the Flight Miniatures brand I believe still, thats where most of my Flight Miniatures came from.

I prefer kitset models and while I haven't built any for years I have been adding to the collection of models for "when I get around to it again". More to the point when I build locking display cabinets to keep the finished articles in as to keep the wife away coz she thinks that they are disposable toys... Well not untill she found out what some of them are worth!!!

List as follows so far and boy did I get whined at when I purchased two more from the local hobby shop (and even got a discount for bulk buy), but I'd saved my pocket money. My 4yo threw a sad when he couldn't buy one but he'd left his pocket money at home so couldn't buy anything. The sad ended and he just said "oh well next time" when reminded of this much to the amusement of the guys behind the counter.

Anyhow list is thus

1/72

Boeing 707-338B
Boeing KC135R (to go with the Monogram B52)
Boeing E3B AWACS
Boeing 737-219 (ZK-NAC as delivered to Wellington NZ in 1968, custom decals made complete with aussie flag on it due to a stuff up in the paint shop at Renton. My father was one of the engineers present when the plane first arrived in NZ).
Fokker F27-100 ZK-BXE

1/144

Boeing 777-319ER (Air NZ new delivery)
Boeing 737-204 (ZK-NAI last passenger carrying 200 for Air NZ aside from NQC, latter now with Airwork I believe)
Boeing 727-200 (will do this as RNZAF NZ7271, been hunting for one of these for ages but found one at the hobby shop today gathering dust cheaper than eBay, sound of these coming into Welly airport was awesome, flew on one once, hot rod of the skies but gives you the sh!ts when sitting next to the SCD)

1/300

Boeing 777-200ER Singapore Air (see above) to be depicted as an aircraft I flew on once that cost me and continues to cost me a lot of money. That is I flew from NZ to the Philippines on SIA on a 777 just for a holiday and came back with a wee bit more than duty free....There went my boat which was a liveaboard.. Now land locked in WA but that does make storing, building and displaying model aircraft a lot easier.

By the way I've left the military aircraft out as you'd be reading for weeks, but aside from the 1/72 B52 one of relevance to list is a 1/48 Grumman Avenger to be built as NZ2504. The actual aircraft still exists in Wigram Airforce Museum and my grandfather was the navigator of this plane in WW2, It carried the "Nose art" of "Popeye" but is displayed as "Plonky" as flown by Fred Ladd (I forget the serial number of that aircraft, NZ2502?")

Sorry for crappy quality.

Me fella bought this in DOH for me during a stopover   I can't remember what size it is cause I'm only used to building 1:144 models. This lil A332 is teeny but has such beautiful detail, in the landing gear & wings.  http://i563.photobucket.com/albums/ss78/kierno84/IMG_0996.jpg

I picked up this random EI S330 "Aoife/St.Aoife" in West Main Toys, HKG. It has the same name as me...in HKG...I had to have it. Around €30. Staff there are fantastic & super helpful. I forget what size this is aswell, but it's slightly bigger than the QR A332. The propellers move  http://i563.photobucket.com/albums/ss78/kierno84/IMG_0997.jpg

Not complete enough to be considered a proper model (yet!) but I figured I'd post a teaser pic anyway… here's the inside of a 1:60 paper 77W I've been working on for a number of years. Hopefully it'll be done within the next couple months!

Aside from this, I can't say I have/collect any models. I made a few as a kid but they turned out terribly.
