We have over 200 1:200 models now. Not bad for two gals who only started collecting in June of 2013. BIG thanks go out to several great members of this forum for that and to our friends at Threshold Aviation and Aviation World too


If I had to choose ONE fave though, it would have to be this one
That one 747 is AMAZING! Also, just wondering, but is that a Buffalo Airways C-46 in the third picture?

Ok. I thought the C-46 was from the Airliner Show. I saw 3 of those at Threshold Aviation's table there.

Very difficult for me to pick out my top 5 1/200 models as all of them are very special to me.

However if I have to select my top 5 these would be them:

IF 200 Pan Am Boeing 747 (Both Clipper Defender and Clipper Young America)
ARD 200 BOAC Boeing 747 (G-AWNB)
SAA Boeing 747-244 ZS-SAM (Drakensberg)
IF 200 SAA Boeing 707 (ZS-SAE "Windhoek")
Collector's Aircraft Super VC-10 (G-ASGN)

There are two available on eBay for $165 each, but I think that is too much money for them. And I've found all four of them on a retailer site, who wants an unbelievable $275 each for them.

A DA.C member contacted me recently asking me to "make an offer" for the two I wanted but when I asked to simply tell me his asking price, he refused. Which tells me he probably wanted a fortune for his, too.

Ouch! That's too much $$$.

If I recall, I think 3 of the 4, maybe all 4, came from DAC member kglaubach, the gal who was selling her late father's 1/200 collection. If I happen to stumble across any that are 'reasonably' priced, I'll contact you.

I really wish that Herpa would do those premium models again.

We have three of them. Two Lufthansa Modell Editions and one Delta 737 that came with a cute little pilot

Your ex-B747-300 is a nice piece in my collection, but trust me, I have been looking for the Lufthansa ME for over 2 and half years. It is one of those models you desire the most, and when it arrives, the moment turns better than Christmas.

Greetings!

Excellent choices. I've been trying to find the Jet-X. (I have quite a few Jet-X B722s on my want list.)

I only have two 1/200 models so it's not a difficult choice (the rest of my collection is 1/400).

First in line is a 'Herpa' British Midland Airways Viscount 800 (G-AZNA). This particular aircraft was my very first flight experience in a passenger aircraft and I travelled from EMA to BRU on her in the summer of '80
She's now on static display outside 'Discotheque Kokoriko' in Zomergen, Belgium and can clearly be seen on Google Earth.


Second is a '1st Choice' Flybe Dash 8 (G-JECT) as I've travelled with this particular plane on my travels to Germany over the recent years. This has now changed ownership and has be leased to South African Express Airways.

The Viscount 800 is a very nice model! Definitely a gem for collections!
