Default Rare Recent Purchases

Lately, I have been going crazy and bought a bunch of rare items: KA L1011 old colour scheme, KA L1011 white fuselage / red dragon and the CX B-HOU 1st Boeing Converted Freighter. All very nice models (for me)

Enjoy

Not only for you...

Very nice purchases, well done !

I have/ had all of them too, but sold the oc Tristar (together with the B737-200).

But the converted B747-400 will hopefully stay long in my CATHAY freighter fleet of 8 B747’s...

Why was that? Haven't collected my 737 yet because the Missus will through a fit.

8 747 Freighters? May I ask which ones?

All great purchases and great finds. I love the Cathay freighter and never new about that model being made. Is it J-fox or white box? what is the product number on the box can you share a photo of the box artwork please.
