I haven't commented yet, but you just can cut and paste this to all of your posts.
The talent you have is incredible, your collection is mind blowing and is very interesting.
I've been watching flying boat videos on YouTube because of your previous posts, makes modern stuff so boring in comparison.
Nothing else I can say that hasn't already be said, Well Done!

Merci, si j'écris bien le français, c'est simplement parce que je le suis aussi, je suis Breton.
Thanks ! Basically, it is because I'm French, I'm from Brittany. Regards.

Oui, c'est exact, je pense qu'en France, c'est essentiellement lié au fait qu'il y ait majoritairement des collectionneurs qui font des maquettes à assembler. L'autre raison vient sûrement du fait que les magasins ont un choix restreint, et le peu qu'ils proposent sont des modèles chers et obsolètes. C'est d'ailleurs pour ça que je n'achète pas en France, mais aux Pays-Bas ou en Allemagne depuis longtemps déjà. Globalement, je pense que c'est pour ça qu'il n'y a pas beaucoup de Français ici, outre la difficulté linguistique.

Yes, you're right, I think French collectors are mainly modelers and diecast model shops are very expensive. That's why I only buy my models in the Netherlands or in Germany since a long time ago.

JP you are way too modest, ton anglais est parfait!
When I first joined this forum many years ago, I was always interested in what Air France 340 had to say. I believed that the author was an American or British expat who lived in France and who, like me, was a fan of Air France. It was only later that I learned Air France 340 is a retired Air France captain who wrote fluent English with an American accent no less!

Et bien pour dire vrai, je ne préfère pas l'imaginer, même si la Réunion a bien d'autres richesses à découvrir.

I do believe it is more difficult in Reunion to get some diecast models, even though there are many other things to discover in this isle.

The Caudron is something completely different, it has no roof.

It was designed by its manufacturer in the same spirit as the Flyer of the Wright brothers or the Zeppelin you can see on the shelf, but of course, if things are fine for the wings, for the fuselage, it is another story ...
This Caudron was a gift.

I attach a few pictures, clearly, they are not die cast models but they are in my cabinet.

Whatever the way these models are made, they are awesome.
