Anyone Collect 1-400 Scale Here?

Wed Apr 01, 2009 1:25 pm

I used to have a collection of 300+ models, but sold them all in 2003.

I've now taken it up again as I have more room and more money - got a Phoenix SQ A388, a Gemini Arrow Air L1011 and a VS 744 in the new/old livery from gemini.

Phoenix are a newcomer since I last started collecting - very impressive models. Gemini's models have come on leaps and bounds in quality as well. Dragon are hardly releasing anything these days it seems.

I need to build up my collection now - anyone got any 1-400 scale models they are looking to sell?  Wink

I need:

Easyjet A319 (i know Gemini did one)
Easyjet 73G (Herpa i think?)
Caledonian L1011 (Dragon)
American Airlines A300-605R (Dragon - i used to have the chrome one but it did not have the wingtip fences - is there a version that has them does anyone know?)
United gray livery 777-200ER (Gemini)
Bangkok Airways 717-200 (Phoenix)
Qatar Airways A340-600 (Gemini)
Qatar Airways Orange Tail Asian Games A333 (Phoenix)
Etihad 77W (Did Phoenix do this one?)
Etihad A345 (Dragon I guess?)
Etihad A346 (Phoenix or Dragon)
Emirates A345 (any)
Emirates 777-300A (any)
Emirates 77W (Phoenix)
One-Two-Go Md80-series (Phoenix)
Virgin Atlantic new livery A343 (any)
Virgin Atlantic new/old livery A346 (Gemini)
BA 734
BA A319
BA A320
BA A321
BA Union Flag 777-200
CO 757-200 winglets (Gemini?)
CO 737-700 winglets (Gemini?)

Also does anyone know if anyone has done the following:

Tiger Airways A320
MyTravel A320
Britannia 733
Thomson 762ER
Thomson 763ER
FlyJet 752
Thomas Cook A320
Thomas Cook 752
LIAT Dash 8
American Eagle ATR72


Any ideas?

I don't collect them as much as I do 1:500s, but I do like 'em. In fact, my last model was a 1:400 Continental Connection Q400 from Gemini Jets! My other models are Northwest DC-9s in bowling shoe colors by SMA, the -30, -40, and -50.

A friend of mine just got me started. I've bought UPS 747-400F, Northwest 727-200, Northwest 757-200 OC, Southwest 737-200, and the 3-pack Delta 727-200 all from Gemini Jets. I love em all!

I have over 1000, that take up so much space!

Check ebay for the stuff you need, they tend so show up now and again.

Quoting CHRISBA777ER (Thread starter):

Etihad 77W (Did Phoenix do this one?)

Dragon and Phoenix did this, although Dragon's had a pre-delivery reg. The Phoenix one is ten times better than the Dragon.

Quoting CHRISBA777ER (Thread starter):
Etihad A345 (Dragon I guess?)

Yes. Not a bad model.

Quoting CHRISBA777ER (Thread starter):
Etihad A346 (Phoenix or Dragon)

Dragon did the standard livery and Phoenix have just done the Formula 1. I've orfered the latter.

Quoting CHRISBA777ER (Thread starter):
BA 734

I don't think anyone has done this in 1:400.

None of those have been done. Aeroclassics did a Britannia B767-300 in the classic scheme but it will be hard to get at retail level. It comes up on eBay from time to time. It is a very nice model.

Nice to meet a fellow 1:400 collector. Are you a member of www.400scalehangar.net ?

My son and I also collect with just under 500 models. We had more, but sold off the less meaningful models. Many of the models you're looking can be found on ebay from time to time. Prices vary, sometimes for no apparent reason.

Both my son and I belong to 400scalehangar.com. Lots of collectors from around the world and generally interesting forums.

http://www.wings900.com also has a good database for Models...

I have a couple of those models you're looking for, but not looknig to sell at this time.

www.diecastairplane.com is a great site to buy from...they have some of the models you're looking for. But keep Ebay on the mind too you'll find some stuff there.

Never thought I'd end up collecting models but just received my first 400s and think I'm hooked. Can't believe how much time I've spent on the various sites the past few days just browsing through their inventories.

When can we expect to see some A350s from Gemini or Herpa?

The exact same thing happened to me...bought my first model a Gemini BA 777 a couple of weeks ago, 2 days later got a Syrian 747SP (also Gemini)...but like you I am spending all my spare time looking for more interesting models to buy...im hooked

I'm going to show this post to my girlfriend next time she suggests I should sell some of mine!  silly  I only have about 40, although I must admit most of them are 1/144 kits.
