Default My humble little collection

I once had a massive collection however I have reduced and focused it over the years to a point where I am very please with its presentation. I hope you enjoy.

Oh that A330 was a total (insert expletive) to find, but I do enjoy the hunt.


Thank you so much for the kind words. Makes it worth while when others enjoy your display.

Stay safe everyone.

Less is more. Really like your display. One of my New Year tasks is disposing of models accumulated in my early crazy days and focusing on my 1/200 LOT Polish, Iberia ( ‘sunshine cheatline’) and South African ‘Springbok ‘ collection so they can be displayed with dignity!
Your post is an incentive. Thanks.

I did have Harry Potter and Birthday girl but the colour was very different to the rest of the fleet so reluctantly let them leave my collection.


If anyone was curious, the display case is the IKEA FABRIKÖR, I had a few extra shelves cut then contacted IKEA missing parts for the extra shelf clips because they were missing...... honest IKEA they were.

Very cool, all IKEA here as well, they just have idea solutions for such things, I mean you could do like your own custom builds as cabinets go, if you're handy with that go for it, but yea IKEA surely is very helpful when it comes to such things


As Virgin Atlantic B744's would go I wish JC Wings or Gemini Jets 200 would release the Virgin Atlantic B747-443 "The FALCON" really I'd die for it.

A lovely collection. A Virgin Star Wars "Galaxy's Edge" has a landing spot there when it comes out?

I will make sure it has a spot, I have hope we will see one as JC has already released it in 1:400.
