Default My FedEx Collection

Below are some pictures of my FedEx collection, I am pretty happy with what I have right now, but some other FedEx aircraft would be a nice addition in the future! I am hoping for a B767-300F.

I was on the fence about the Panda but didn't get it. My friend did, though which I found a little surprising.

I know I am missing the DC10, a few months ago I tried to track one down but had no luck in finding one of the ones made by Aviation200. Maybe we will see another release in the future.

As for the 767 I am also kind of hoping they make it with the winglets, but I know that only one aircraft has the winglets. Still I think it would be cool to see it on a cargo jet.

Very nice, I continue to believe that the little Falcon 20 wearing the initial Federal Express livery could be a winner.

Did you ever work for FedEx or something?

I know many people here collect for airlines that they have flown frequently, and I think it's pretty neat that someone takes an interest in a shipping company.

Beautiful collection!

Thanks! I have never worked for FedEx, I did work for UPS one Christmas though. I do hope to one day work for FedEx Express as a pilot, but I have to build up a lot more flight hours before they will look at my resume.

I like to collect FedEx aircraft because I like the livery, even though there really is nothing too special about it. I like the color combinations and how it looks on the aircraft. I think my favorite aircraft is the Panda Express one, I was super excited at the end of the year last year when I found out that JC Wings was making the Panda Express with leaves. It was one model that I had wanted since I started collecting a few years ago.

Nice!

I had no idea Fedex (or any freighter service for that matter) did special liveries and that always makes collecting more fun. The panda livery is cool- it stands out without taking over the entire shape of the aircraft.

There aren't many things I like about Memphis but FedEx is one of them. It's pretty damn cool watching 200+ of them come in every night and then watching them 200+ of them leave three hours later.

Nice FedEx fleet. Not only the DC-10 is missing but also the GJ B727. I am a FedEx diecast fleet collector with the B727,B757,B777,DC-10 in my fleet and now waiting for the ATR and MD11 models.

well i am not a serious diecaster, so all that I have is mostly fantastic-plastic. i got 3 fedex in my collection that I dont see there, mainly becoz you are into diecast models only, i guess...

The first one is a Hogan B767F and the latter two are both B777Fs, with one made by Lysia\Aero le Plane and the other being a Hogan yet again...

Nice models! I do have mostly diecast models, especially for my collections like this, I guess maybe its the weight of the model I like. I do have several plastic ones as well, I think my favorite plastic one is the Boeing 747 LCF Dreamlifter.
