Thank you! Many more in their boxes! I've been looking for a new house on property with an out building so I can display em all! Maybe in the next year or two!

Beautiful displays! The Air India 707 in the first picture caught my attention and so did the extensive Pan Am collection

Thanks! Yes the Air India was a bone yard acquisition as she was tossed to the side by a nit picky collector. I took her in and after a few fixes in the hangar she is good as new! Love the 707, plus Air India makes it a winning combination!

Pan Am is one of my favorites, along with TWA, United, Eastern, American, Continental, Braniff, Piedmont, USAir, and on and on!

BEAUTIFUL !!!

I also do this from time to time (giving me ideas to purchase some more models &#x1f609.

BTW a little suggestion: Even your PAN AM collection is huge, try to find a place for the B747 AIR ZAIRE beside the B747 „Clipper Juan Trippe (I believe I spotted it there), just because it is the same aircraft 🙂

Thanks DC8-Dude and Maarlandair!

The Stratocruiser is Hobby Master. Picked it up cheap off Ebay about a year ago with the Pan American DC prop job next to it, also HM. Cheap...no boxes and less than $20 shipped for both. I had to contact HM for Stands for both, a cowling and prop for the Strat, and set of gear for the DC. HM was great to deal with and fast in getting me the parts...I think I did okay all in all. Like saving the mutts when I find them!

The only problem with the Air Zaire is its tainted from the seller.

???????

Sorry, but as a not nativ English speaking guy, I have no idea what this mean (as also the GOOGLE translation makes no sense).

And as I am thinking to get this model, I am very interested in comments about it…

BTW by looking at pictures of it in the internet, it seems that it doesn’t have the “yellowing problem” which some polished models have regarding the white colour of the fuselage.

well dammit...

I wasn't aware the white top had been done. I was still into 1/400s back when it was released. there is the earlier livery available on ebay for a premium.

I just received my replacement parts for the damaged BOAC DC-7 i purchased off ebay.

BOAC 7 is nice! Glad HM was also responsive to your parts requests!

Crownvic, ...so true! I gave it a wipe down to get the Five Guys grease off of it!

Crownvic gets credit for the Air Zaire 747 (Custom) as he sold it to me last year when he saw I missed out on it when it became available (and no I'm not getting the IF200 release)! Very generous of Crownvic! It goes great with my IF200 Air Zaire DC-10 I purchased from dem boys dare in NJ a couplelaa F%$kin weeks ago Frankie...yo yo!
