Default My Cathay Pacific fleet & Dragonair

Hi everyone, for more than a year I have rarely been here in the forum. I haven't given up this wonderful hobby either. On the contrary, I'm still busy collecting it. I've kept buying new models I like but unfortunately I don't have enough time for photography because I have also other hobbies.
I would like to show you today my Cathay Pacific fleet, I took the pics in the last christmas time.

This is an incredible collection of Cathay models. These pictures represent a timeline of Cathay history that I am sure any Cathay historian would envy. It would be awesome if Cathay could somehow recognize this but we all know that will never happen. Congratulations and thank you for taking the time to remove each model and display them.

Great to see you back and great CX and Cathay Dragon collection. I know just how hard it is to do a group photo like this as I had to shoot my oneworld collection like that. It's also great to see you are still sharing your wonderful airport diorama's with us. Thank you.

CX had the loveliest liveries - their special liveries, too. (I especially love their Asia's World City livery.) Thank you for sharing the photos. I appreciate how much time it must've taken you (hours?) to remove & replace each model from its box, install & remove gear, etc. to photograph them.

Thank you, in my opinion, this is a very good airlines with many beautiful aircraft and liveries. Unfortunately I am still missing a lot of Cathay Pacific models and it is not easy to find or it is very expensive.

I spent almost 2 days, that's why I did it in the Christmas time.

Very nice photo's there Vandan, but with all the types being seen there, the Boeing 747's always take my win
VH-HKG will always be my favorite got one myself, the golden Widget was only used on this flagship btw, it was a respect to the British Queen, when Hong Kong Was part of the UK.

Beautiful Cathay Pacific collection vandan. Always love your topics. The old Cathay livery is one of the best liveries from the past. I always loved it on the 747 and L1011. So much that I decided to pre order the new AV200 L1011 as my first Cathay model. The 747 shown by goldleader is also a stunner.
