Default My latest arrivals

Finally after a long wait with a few of these coming from Asia:

KC 747
747 SCA
377 Super Guppy
ATL-98

Shipping cost is becoming exorbitant these days ;(

Thanks. These are all out of production unique oldies. Very hard to find and not cheap at all but I certainly didn't pay the recent exorbitant price we've seen...lol...

Nice find on the Herpa Guppy, it took me ages to acquire mine thanks in part to a fellow DACer here.

I got on board that Phoebus Carvair last year at RAND airport in Johannesburg S Africa. they also had an MD-83 with the same nose art too..

sad to see the paint on the ATL is peeling off like that ;( I guess it's not flyable anymore?

That was my biggest mistake while travelling over JNB to Perth, as both times my planes arrived before sunrise in JNB and the next was after sunset.

So I spend 2 long days on the visitor terrace instead of going one day to the famous SAA collection at the Rand airport...

I always try to visit any nearby museum or airfields . Sad to see how a lot of the museum planes are gutted so they can put in some sort of exhibit inside. I would rather it be kept as close to the original look as possible

You can not be serious EC? The Guppy looks like a wreck! On the other hand Crownvic grounding a Star Jump is super impressive.
