I particularly like the way the presentation is done. Each showcase has its own theme that is adhered to. The combination with a few matching airline souvenirs add additional value to the models. That works even if there are only a few.

The most important at the end. There is no tight space and the models are clearly aligned. I know, I know ... most collectors have massive space problems. This means that the models in the showcases are often nested inside one another. They will then be better protected, but that's about it. But our models are like a painting. If it is to come into its own, it not only needs a suitable frame but also space.
dennypayne and jawomba like this.

Yup, I agree. I hope to see still more, or better to see them once in FRA.

best regards,

Very impressive collection you have there, and I agree, the memorabilia in the glass cases adds to the presentation! Well done!

That is one beautiful DL lineup, there's nothing better than seeing all those classic cheatlines all up next to each other.

Nice set there still the best is missing out, which was N9896; Delta's first B747 that went in service on October 02, 1970.
this was a Delta B747-132 to be specific.
