I forgot my Dinky Toys models !

I too have this beautiful Dinky Super Toys AF Constellation.
But I think the oldest I have is an English Dinky Toys AF Vickers Viscount that I received in 1957 ...
Picture attached.

I know, the nose gear is a bit oversized ...

My first 1:200's were the 4 UAL B-757s. I forget the order I got them, but remember buying two from another DAC'er outside of Joliet. Thanks

Hogan Concorde which has since been given away to a kid. The gears just started deteriorating. I hope this kid will pick up the hobby as I have given him quite a few Hogans, Skymarks and Flight Miniatures.

Started with some cheap plastic PPC/Megamodels models in 2014. Seeing al the diecastmodels at the store made me wonder who in the world would pay such a price for a small airplane model. Until i bought one..... Just one, because i flew on it. A Cityjet fokker 50 from Herpa. The total at this moment 98 diecasts....

As a kid of course I had the UK Dinky Toys aircraft. its always in the blood. By the time I was 14 (1960) they'd been given away but my grandparents bought me a present from Belgium that year, a French Dinky Super connie. The one in the picture is another I bought in the 1970's. However the Eastern chop is that very same original AF super connie that my grandparents bought for me. Before the chop I dismantled the model, modified it, made a silicone rubber mould and cast 2 resin shots. One of those shots became the TWA super connie (in 1972). The other I painted up as SLICK AIRWAYS. Tragically amateurish today , but I was tickled pink back then!

Well this was my very first model I purchased many years ago, it is made by Small World and is a INVICTOR AIRWAYS 610 Viking 3B G-AOCH, This is what got me started in collecting model aircraft, the reason being as well as the first model in my collection witch is well over a 1000 now, it was the actual aircraft I flew on to Belgium, and was also the fist plane I had ever flown on, so its a keep sake model with lots of memories.

I had that AF Viscount (English version) when I was a kid in the late 50's. I hated it because my parents gave it to me instead of the CPA Britannia (CF-CZA, 421) I was continually asking for at birthdays and Christmas. Then I could never understand WHY the flight deck windscreen was white(??) when all the other aircraft in the range were silver.

Oh well, I finally got a minty-mint the Dinky CPA Britannia, but NOW to complete my collection I need to get this AF Viscount (English version)! I'll get back to that aspect of my 'diecast' when I get a few other things sorted first.

Well since photobucket pulled the pin on free sharing back to the forum uploads

Sorry you all could not see the pictures, however, thank you all for your contribution.

The second photo was the first photo in this thread Post #1 before photobucket changed their rules & policy on free sharing. Those days are over. The second photo, Tonka was what you were responding to but no-one could see either. I have some pm's for free photo - sharing services from DAC friends (and thank you) but there is a language barrier. So still working on it

Consider 'www.tinypic.com'. Its free and easy for casual pic hosting. The adverts can be aggressive, though. That's where I went when Photobucket got nasty. No worries now.

Cool Re: What was your first 1:200 Diecast model?

My first 1:200 . . .
I had been collecting Corgi 1:72 RAF WWII stuff for a number of years, but I was getting annoyed with the lack of detail for what I was forking out.

I've also had a big interest in commercial airliners from the 30s and up, and seeing what was being offered in the 1:200 world, I thought I'd dip my toe into this scale. My first was a Hogan Concorde, the same registration as the one on pylons at Charles de Gaulle in Paris (F-BVFF). We actually saw that one as we taxied out in 2006.

I was blown away with the stencil detail and the landing gear detail. The rest is history. A lovely, modest Air France collection has been the result. Why AF? Easy. A HUUUUUGGGGGE history with some real ground breaking hardware and liveries.

F-BVFF (FoxFox) is in the middle of the photo.

Nice thread man!, it made me remember so many great things.. my first model was a Hogan LAN Chile Boeing 767, somewhere in 2007, and my first diecast was a GJ200 Iberia A320 in the early 2008. Bought from Airparadigm... and the shipping was only 13 bucks to santiago of chile... good old times...

My first official diecast 1:200 model was a Braniff ''Yellow"" B720 made by Heathrow modelsfrom EBay in poor detail with decals and that was not more than 10 years ago, in 2010 I had started my full serious collection of diecast 1:200 and now I have arount 930.

Please bear in mind this model was released 2004 - that was 13 years ago. OK, it has an ugly seam around the wing-root and the vertical-stabilizer - but in fact "Herpa" managed to get a few things right, where other manufacturers, especially "Inflight", failed on the 727-100:

(1) A correct Boeing-type nose,
(2) nicely printed cockpit-windows,
(2) correct overall dimensions.

Thanks Christopher, it's been awhile I hope you're doing well.

The GeeBee, B-247, and the wing of a Junkers G-38 are all models from my good friend Derek Barratt who recently died. A very sad day indeed.

I am lucky enough to have several of his models and they hold a special place in my heart.

Thank you everyone for your contribution thus far. It is fascinating to find out what each of you got hooked in this great hobby that we share and love. Please keep them coming. What I should have asked should have included plastic/resin, 1:200 too. It's all good and welcome.

I also have a test link in this thread. Imgur: The most awesome images on the Internet

First trial of my new Imgur account too. Don't know how to upload yet still in trials. I have deleted my photobucket account.

First 1/200 diecast was probably Hogan DHC-8-300 ANA "Tsubaki" JA801K. Got it before started recording dates, but was probably around 2001 or so. I have a poster from Bombardier of same plane, so had to get it. Ended up getting the other ANA -300s too.
Been building Hasegawa 1/200s since the 80's, but more "full tilt" since late 90's to compliment diecasts and Hogans, etc.

Delta L1011 and Delta 757 both widget livery 1/200 are the first ones I bought. My dad gave me a Delta L1011 1/400 he bought at a flea market before I bought mine. All GJ's

My first 1:200 model was a B757 from us airways but in plastic which I bought last year.
The first diecast was then a A300 from American Airways.

Another doomed person!
Welcome to the club, about 3 years ago I barely knew 1/200 even existed, now I probably have over 50 models in this scale!

Aviation200 Grand China Express ERJ-145LR

I;ve always have this liking for the slender appearance of the ERJ-145.

I wish the landing gears could be removed....
