I Took a 1:400 Helicopter Spotting in My Basement // Spotting @KDTK

Hello folks, it’s a snow day today, and you know what that, means! Setting up my airport with “snow” and taking pictures! I couldn’t go to the airport because A) the roads are terrible and B) the conditions are also terrible. I had a ton of fun with the entire process, and maybe I’ll do it tomorrow too 👀

Notice for Minimods/Community Mods

I know these are models, and they might “fit” into the show off your model planes topic, but I’d rather make an official spotting topic for my and some of the community’s enjoyment


First off here we have this Delta A350-900 by Gemini Jets lining up to take the Detroit Lions to play the Vikings in Minneapolis, Minnesota


Next here we have the same aircraft returning from Minneapolis, having lost against the Vikings, who would've thought?


Gemini Jets Delta A220-300 resting at C4 before a flight out to Salt Lake City, Utah. Fun fact, Delta is one of 3 airlines to have a hub/focus city here at MMI, the other two being Southwest and United


Our first cargo model is this Gemini Jets Interactive Series 747-400 lining up on 15, delivering cargo to Miami, Florida


Now up, Regionals. Here we have the Delta Connection CRJ-900 operated by Skywest heading down to Raleigh/Durham, North Carolina


Our first NG Models is this absolutely stunning 737-800 from Southwest in the Freedom One special livery. This is my favorite model in my collection, and she's heading down to Fort Myers, Florida


A model I got for Christmas, is this SAS A350-900, with a Southwest 737-700 front gear because my little brother "accidentally" took the original gear off. She's lining up on 15 for a flight up to Copenhagen, Dennmark


NG Models' best mould has to be their 737's, if you ever have to decide on a model, these 737's are the way to go. This United 737-700 is heading down to Houston/Bush


My first 777-300ER would be this beauty, this Emirates 77W in the 2020 Expo "Blue" livery, lining up on 15 for a 14 hour flight to Dubai, UAE


To close out this edition of model spotting, is this Delta A330-300 from NG Models, taking off on runway 15 for Paris/Charles De Gaulle, France

Awesome photos! I’m guessing you’re getting the snow that we’re getting tomorrow here. About a foot and a half of snow here. How much snow do you have now?

It’s always a great time to see model aircraft! :) I might even purchase some of my own one day. This topic is great! I really love how you implemented snow into the shots to simulate snowy conditions! If I may ask, which airport are these shots from? Great job mate!

Great idea to put snow at your model airport! I might try that myself. And great models also. :)

The Atlas air 744 is a beautiful model! Nice photos as well

This is just awesome! I love the snow!
The CRJ is my favorite. It looks comfy at home!
Freedom One is just a stunner too!
Beautiful work!

I did that once when I was like 7 years old with baby powder it got all over the room and my parents were not as thrilled about it as I was

@Heavy_Lifter: Thanks for the kind words. Those CRJs are very tough to find now since they’re in such high demand, and Freedom One too

@K.John.C: Welcome to the community!!!

@CaptainAli_yt: Well…I do have a snow day tomorrow too…you know what that means!
