These jumbos are simply stunning. The second one makes me think of Sabena's 70's livery, has more or les the same cheat line...

Wonderfull collection indeed !

I like your Olympic fleet. The Comet and the Shorts are particularly nice i.m.o.
It triggered a question why Olympic ended up operating Soviet YAK-40's.
I read they were on lease from Aertirrena, a Soviet backed airline in Italy.

Thank you all for your nice comments.
Unfortunately I have slept over a few models in the past... and it seems there is no way to find those..

Amazing Olympic fleet!! I’ve been wanting to get the A343 for the longest time. You have both releases? Is there a difference other than the registrations? Could you please post more pictures of them?

Amazing collection though, must of been quite the ride to hunt them down and succeed, very nicely done

The most interesting are these two

Boeing 747-212B (Ex Singapore Airlines)
Olympic Airlines "Atlantic Blue Livery 1996-2009"
SX-OAE
Scale 1:200
Inflight 200
Age 29.5 Years
Status: Scrapped

More info of this B747 Classic:

https://www.planespotters.net/airfra...airways/e5dgg3



Boeing 747-284B
Olympic Airways "Navy Blue Livery 1973-1996"
SX-OAB
Scale 1:200
Inflight 200
Age: 47.8 Years
Status: Preserved at HEW by the Olympic Airways Employees’ Cultural Center (Polkeoa) with the intention of it being put on display at an onsite museum in the future

More info of this B747 classic:

https://www.planespotters.net/airfra...irways/rm7ykr?


As for the 6 rings this was done because the Olympic games Comity didn't allow them to use 5 rings, so 5 of the 6 rings resemble the 5 continents and the 6th resembles Greece it's self.

Found this info here on this cool blog page:
http://logoshistory.blogspot.com/201...ines-logo.html
"The first five rings stand for the five continents, while the sixth stands for Greece. Colours used were yellow, red, blue and white. "

Here an Olympic Airways Add from 1980 also featuring that Navy Blue Livery from that time:


Now I'm not really sure of the actual livery names and dates, I kind of filled in the gaps to what I think they were named and were used.
Feel free to correct me on some things

Here you are..
Some slight differences although it is supposed to be the same mould. There is also a different tone in the colours, blue and also the light gray for the underside..

Not at all, several airplanes that flew with Olympic's colours are not even represented in the scale at all. For the ones that are made I have missed 4-5 models... So unfortunately my collection is not compete.. I have contacted manufacturers in the past asking them to make
additional models.. IF responded quite well to my request and we might see some more in the future!! 🙂

Very nice collection indeed Charlie Mike. I'm of Greek heritage and really miss seeing the old Olympic colors fly. I had the previledge of servicing the Greek Prime Ministers aircraft when he toured Australia some 10 years ago. He flew in a A340-300. It was only a quick stop, but very satisfying to see the aircarft in Darwin. Well done.

That old Olympic livery is truly iconic. Never seen the Yak ‘wearing the rings’ before. A very nice collection of models. I did fly on one of their YS11s many years ago. I think they were the only European operator of the type?

A Super Frelon helicopter would be very nice but it is a utopia ...

That's not the earlier livery.
The model sports the livery that succeded the "rainbow/atlantic blue" scheme. Basically keeping the blue and replacing all other colors of the "rainbow".
Strange enough all models I've seen have a different tone of blue.

Thank you for the tail comparison shot especially. I find the newer versions tail is much more accurate! I’ve picked this model up for my collection as well! 🙂

Impressive and beautiful fleet! I really like the older liveries with the cheat line and gray belly.
