Model Aircraft Collections


All of my planes. I started collecting during the Christmas holiday. To expand I plan to get 1 on the last day of every month!

Well this kinda sucks so a while back I ordered two models a Cathay A359 and a FedEx 757. The Cathay was discontinued or out of stock so I got to choose another model. I chose an Air Transit A330-200 it was supposed to come last week but the people didn’t have the plan yet so I changed it again to an Alaskan A321NEO… I hope this one comes in.

Good store they just don’t have things on time but it’s ok because they’re customer support is really nice and friendly.

@Infinite_Qantas probably because of mine statement…

I think it’s just that they don’t update the web constantly…

They changed me some models. And told me to do it 2 months later with no answer… etc etc.

Die cast plane store updates frequently because when I was first looking a while back some models I was looking at and they are gone now.

Great news! I just contacted one of my friends (who owns a modeling company), and he’s going to be 3D printing 17 jetbridges for me. 10 normal, and 7 widebody. He’s located in London so it’ll be a while until it ships and everything, but will update when they arrive.

Edit: They’re being custom made to replicate the ones at CYYZ

Wow! That is so cool! I have access to a 3d printer and would love to make some jetbridges. May I ask where you obtained the design files for the 3d printer to make the jetbridges? Thank you so much!

I’ve seen a video from Aviation 18 where he unboxed a custom airport. Was it the guy that made it for him possibly? I heard they make custom airports.

That’s nice collection you have there!

You’re clearly a pro, as you’ve got quite a few airlines that don’t exist now, such as Continental and US Airways!

Plus, it’s a lot bigger than my collection of three aircraft!
