Default My Collection from India!

Hello everyone,

Hope you all are keeping well and safe! I'm an avid collector from India and am delighted to join this forum. Seeing everyone's knowledge and passion for the hobby is always inspiring.

As of today, I collect 1:200 diecast metal models of commercial airlines and my focus is on-

1. Indian carriers
2. Indian subcontinent carriers
3. International carriers I have flown on
4. Miscellaneous carriers (references to pop culture, historically significant, special liveries, etc.)

Please enjoy some photos of my small collection. As is evident, Air India is a favourite, but I do hope more manufacturers make 1:200 diecast metal models of Indian carriers such as Vistara (beautiful livery), Indigo (the largest A321 Neo customer), etc. Inflight200 has recently delivered big with the Air India 747, Kingfisher A330 and Govt. of India 777-300ER, but a few more would always be welcome.

I also have a list of haves and wants which I will share soon, so hope to trade with a few of you.

Thanks for reading and look forward to making everyone's acquaintance

Welcome to the forum. You already have some very nice models in your collection. I like the "Flying Palace" livery on Air India 747's from the 70's. Classic livery. Looking forward to more of your posts.

Thank you very much for the warm welcome! I have been collecting for the past couple of years and have been focusing on quality over quantity.

Indeed, that livery is much loved here. So much so, that many are wishing that the retro livery makes a comeback after Air India's imminent acquisition by the private sector. This would be a fantastic opportunity to revive an airline that requires much improvement in most areas and could once again thrive in both the domestic and international sectors. Fingers crossed!

Great collection, especially the 747s. Welcome to the forum.

As I am sure you know, there is a Jet 737-800 VT-JBE out there if you search long enough, and if you don’t mind plastic, IndiGo sell a Hogan A320 on board (or at least they used to..)

I would love to see a Kingfisher A320 and Indian airlines 737-200, but I doubt it will ever happen.

Thank you for the warm welcome! The 747s are beauties and it's sad to see them disappear from the skies. I am hoping to add the Inflight200 Air India current livery and JFox Asiana Airlines 747s this year.

The Jet Airways VT-JBE and VT-JBC are both in my wants list. Patiently waiting for them to pop up somewhere. I've submitted a trade post which includes these two, but waiting for it to be approved by the admins.

Indigo does not sell them on board anymore, however, I would love to see a 1:200 diecast metal model someday following the JC Wings and Phoenix 1:400 ones.

A Kingfisher A320 and an Indian Airlines 737-200 would be marvellous! An Indian Airlines A300 or A320 in the original colours wouldn't be too bad either

Welcome to the forum, you have very interesting models in your collection.

Is the Indian Airlines Caravelle a custom ?

Appreciate the warm welcome! Indeed, they are my prized possessions at present. It took a lot of hard work and patience to track all of them down considering the fact that some of them are almost 14-15 years old

Thank you for the warm welcome and the compliments Jean Pierre!

The Indian Airlines Caravelle is a 2019 release by Inflight200. I believe a few pieces are still available with certain retailers in case you are interested in purchasing one

Thanks a lot for the compliment! The Nepal Airlines is a gorgeous model by JC Wings with one flaw- it stays at V1 naturally due to improper weight distribution. It doesn't remain flat, hence I had no choice but to take the picture like that

Thank you very much for your compliments and the warm welcome! It most certainly is in the top 10 at least of a few collectors' lists. Most manufacturers must have received requests to make it. Let's hope they are listening!
