There is a rather good JU 52 available from Zvezda a Russian manufacturer, its scale is 1/200.
It is very cheap.

I attach a few pictures.

Another picture showing the Arc en Ciel, the Bloch 220, the Dewoitine 338, the Farman 223.4, the Latécoère 631 and the JU 52.
We could say from 1933 to 1947 …

One day, I take a few photos of my AF fleet from 1933 to 1957, the last aircraft being the L 1649 …

Jean Pierre.

My definition of classics are airliners up to and including the Boeing 747-300.
Having said that I am HUGELY biased to classic airliners and airlines.

I have only 35 diecast models and another 100 plastic kits and resin models.

The vast majority are classic airliners of the 70's 60's and 50's.
Of those most are of airliners and airline colours of the 1960's.

I also like airline colours that have cheat lines (stripe accross the window) and
brightly polished lower fuselages and engine nacelles.

I can't stand almost ALL modern airline liveries most especially so called artwork
and cartoon characters.They look worse than grafitti !Also,I don't like the minimalist
look.

As far as modern airliners are concerned
I like the Boeing 777-300ER and to some extent the A380 but the rest are of no
interest to me -especially the A320 series,A350,Boeing 787 and modern Boeing 737's.

I am also a fleet builder like Jean Pierre , JSlevin and several other collectors here and there are a lot, the classics are always welcome! They represent the history that goes with the airline. Here you will see Ex World War 2 Short 23 Empire Flying boat "Qantas", Shorts Sandringham S 25 MK4 "Ansett " and "Trans Australia Airlines (TAA) " Consolidated Catalina, plus DC3's DC4s DC6's, Vickers Viscount, an Armstrong Witworth AW-650 Argosy Ipec freighter, and ATL-98 Carvair Ansett freighter, and Qantas, Ansett, Air New Zealand a Electras & Qantas Connies & an Ansett a F27 TAA somewhere in the mix. Love them and keep all the classics coming. I would love a JCW Qantas Catalina too

I don't want to be a bore ...
Among my prop liners, those with an AF logo, from 1933 to 1957.
Yes there is a Comet among them, it was a pioneer.
It's really a pity that there is no manufacturer to make a model of this aircraft.

Jean Pierre.

For me, the classics are from the 1930s....(1950s too, including first generation jetliners).

I'm loving all the collection photos here. I think it's fascinating how some people collect. Whether the focus of your collection is on a specific era, airline, nation, aircraft you have flown/worked on, or otherwise, it's really cool seeing how people have displayed their models. Very nice.

Thanks Thijs, yes the flying boat is very elegant, it was designed before the war, the prototype flew during the war and production started just after.

It was a technical and commercial failure.

And so beautifully displayed too! Absolutely love the stands. So 'Smithsonian museum-like'.
