Default Been busy building my fleets!

Every now and then someone questions themselves as to whether they should collect fleets or stick to one type. I was one of those people and before I new it, I had started too many fleets! So a word of advice, unless your a millionaire, have a good relationship with your bank manager or have a very understanding partner, try a stay away from building too many fleets. My partner says "why do you have to buy the same model" Well, because they have a different rego's. Anyway, I've added a few new members to my collection and in doing so had to add an extra two 5mm glass shelves in my cabinet to accommodate the new arrivals. Hope you enjoy the pics.

Nice thanks for sharing! In my opinion you chose to take the better direction in the fork in the road! I'm not a registration type of collector except for flown on!

Nice collection you have there!!

I fear your Emirates collection will be out of control if you decide to collect all the reg's for their 777s

That's correct its a 1/200 JC Wings SilkAir 737 MAX. You'll slowly see the SilkAir livery disappear as they slowly get incorporated in with their parent company ( Singapore Airlines) colors. Unfortunately, due to the 737 MAX grounding, the "older" 737's ( that were destined for Scoot), will have to remain with SilkAir until further notice. Also, interesting is that the grounded 737's MAX were recently flown from Singapore to Alice Springs for storage.

Thanks for sharing ! A most impressive display in those cabinets. You're wise to be keeping it real; having several models in the same livery can be very effective if you position them in a diorama.
