Default Wall of 747's.

Several years ago I posted a few pictures of my collection of 1:200's die-cast models. All models collected are of a specific registration I have flown on. In some cases I have been fortunate enough that the particular model(s) I seek are factory made, otherwise, I have gone to Martin Beacom to customize the registration, or on occasion, I have asked him to make a completely customized model.
I've recently moved, and look to post photos of the rest of the collection when I get it fully displayed, but in the meantime, I thought I'd post my updated "Wall of 747's".
I'm at around 400 total models at this stage, and I must confess to enjoying looking at them. I imagine, like is the case for many of you, so many of these aircraft represent a particular time/place in my life.
Best wishes for 2018!

Thank you all for the feedback.
The Air Pacific is actually of VH-EEI an ex-American 100. I flew it from Perth to Singapore on a Qantas flight (you can see the Qantas titles on it if you look closely). This is a custom model.
I have another one of an Air New Zealand 200 that was leased to Air Pacific. I'll get a photo of it posted one of these days.

Yes it is a 747-238 not a 747-3 by the way and the decals look like this



Don't panic to much, I think we will see this affectionately called fruit tingle in 2018 (on inflight mould by Jfox) just a big gut felling.

Wow, that’s an impressive collection. I too collect models that depict the exact colour scheme and registration of the actual aircraft that I have flown on but in any scale so I have 1:200, 1:250, 1:400, 1:500 and 1:600 in my collection but only a measly 28 models so far. Space is also limited for me, shame as I have identified another 4 models that I could buy. I won’t dare to go down the custom route as we’re looking at about 600 airframes across 60 or so types.

Latest addition was the InFlight 200 KLM B747-200 SUD PH-BUN that I flew in from Amsterdam to New York, I’m really pleased with it.

Again, thank you all.
Not sure how I can help with info on the shelves, but let me know if you have a specific question.
The KE OC is a Martin Beacom custom.
I flew on the UPS 747 N674UP in early '87, while she was still operated by a contract carrier for UPS. I flew round-trip ONT-HNL.
GliderPilot we have having flown on PH-BUN in common. I flew her twice from Jakarta to Singapore in the late '80's.

Nice. I have only flown on 5 Boeing 747’s; I don’t envy you all the flying you must have done to have a collection that size. I usually take about 30-36 flights a year, mostly for work and all short haul inter-European with a maximum duration of 4 hours a sector but usually 45-60 minutes.
