Arrow Newbie Kiwi Collector

Thought I would do quick intro - Always been meaning to start collecting some models but just never got around to it because so busy. I own and publish number of helicopter industry and aerial fire fighting magazines so am constantly travelling around the world and have done so since I was about 18. However with Covid 19 now curtailing the travel decided to finally start putting together a collection. All my models are 1:200th scale.

All my models are of aircraft that I have personally flown on or had something to do with ever since I was a young kid. Problem is the more I had my travel manager dig into previous trips the list kept getting bigger Have collected about 20 in the last month with about another 30 on their way and LOT more being added to the list.

Massive thanks to some of the members here who have helped me source the ones I need - really is a good community. Hope everyone enjoys the pics of them as I add them.

Kia Kaha from New Zealand.

Had some arrive this morning.

Going back and forth across the ditch to Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane and up and down the east coast of Aussie these three were regular rides so nice to add them.

Lucked out today - one more arrived. Also a bit of trivia. One of my jobs is I shoot on the bushfires in Australia for the NSW Rural Fire Service, usually up in the air attack platforms shooting all the other aircraft. In this photo below I got to work with 911 the sister aircraft to 10 Tankers 910. This was on a fire out the back of Sydney near Buxton called the Green Wattle Creek fire.

Love the B747's the most, but that Douglas DC-10 Tanker Air Carrier is also very cool!

A very nice collection with a nice variety set of aircraft.

This one arrived this morning which I am super excited about. Did many flights from HNL to Kona and Maui on this aircraft when Aloha was still in business. Brings back some awesome memories.

Here are the rest of the ones that arrived today. Mix of the Qantas 100th Anniversary 787 and some Kiwi ones that I used to fly on and some I regularly fly on around the country.

Good to see courier companies deliver on the weekend.

First one was Air NZ DC-10 which is great. As a kid I did one of the flights down to the ice on one then not long after Air NZ lost the DC-10 at Mt Erebus. Remember being on Waiheke Island at a school camp the day that happened.

Next one is Hawaiian Airlines 717 - another regular ride around the islands during many trips there.

Last but no least the Qantas 747SP - another I did flights on right back at the beginning of my aviation journey.

Unfortunate thing is now that we are going to have another two weeks or lockdown in auckland I am stuck at home and what better way to while away the time than browse the www and find some new additions for my collection.

Good to see couple more arrive in lockdown.

Air NZ Boeing 777-200ER - regular ride to California pre covid.

Singapore Airlines Boeing 777-300ER was the first hop to Singapore before heading over to Europe - again before Covid hit.

These two are the first of the expanded collection - ones I bought for no other reason than I liked the paint schemes.

Yes - unfortunately cant control the handling of the package on its way here. But since I am keeping it for my own collection and not just as an investment to sell like others I am fine with it.

I glued back a 1/400 747 nosegear broken at the strut before ... slow steady does it.. If you can do it along the break cleavage joint, even better

need to place and maintain the plane nose straight down obviously

Today was a fun today - got to add a whole bunch of smaller models to my collection. While its cool getting some of the modern day stuff its also quite cool to add some of the older ones that are part of Australian and NZ aviation history.

Very happy today - had 5 boxes arrive today - been on a spending spree lately

Mix of big and small models. One of the guys I buy from had a customer who was getting rid of all his older Australian models so I bought them lock stock and barrel and got some pretty cool ones. Others fill in some of the gaps on my "To Get" list.

Nice models...the American DC-10 is quite hard to find now a days

When I find ones I want for my collection usually wait and get a few together before shipping so when a box arrives it usually has a few in there.

Had three awesome Air NZ ones arrive today. Filling in a few blanks for my collection.

Got some other non Air NZ ones that also arrived so will add them tomorrow.

Thats a fair few thousand you have spent over the past few months. A lot of those NZ ones are very hard to find and when you do....... mega bucks. You either have the best contact in the aviation model world or an unlimited bank account ! Either way, congratulations, the work you have put in and what you have received for all that work is truly astounding.

Cant take the $$ with you when you die so might as well spend it on stuff I like.

The prices actually arent that bad. One of my contacts in Europe has helped me find a large number of the ones I am after and also got a contact in Singapore who has helped me find some as well. These guys are worth their weight in gold. Plus here in NZ both James and William have supplied me with some I was after.
