Default My KLM 50s Fleet

Latest arrival is the stunning DC-4 "Rotterdam".

You can't beat the great era of intercontinental props! I wished I lived during that time. Nice models. I am curious about the other (custom made) PH-LKK's in your collection. Share some pics if you want.

Great propliners snowghost. It must have been an unforgettable experience flying on the connie as a kid. Definately gonna watch your other topic. Btw, a German company called Schuco is coming with an all new connie model in KLM colors, don't know what the registration is gonna be but she will be in 1:72 scale, so quite big!

Wow. Do you think it will be accurate? I had the old 1:600 Schucos and the were more toy-like.

Great post snowghost. Love the 50 & 60's era. Great stuff and thanks for posting. I can't choose a favorite it's too hard. I love them all (including the Lufthansa 707). Thanks mate
