Thumbs up Air New Zealand and Virgin Australia 1:400 COLLECTION

Here are a few pictures of my Air New Zealand and Virgin Australia 1:400 COLLECTION!!!!!


I've just reduced my collection down to these 2 airlines which now work together.

Am thinking of another airline to add! Etihad maybe the best choice in my opinion as they are connected with these two airlines as code share partners with air New Zealand.

Feel free to add your thoughts and comments.

Hope you enjoy!!!!

What's the point of a thread about what you should add to your collection? The whole point of having a collection is to get what you want, not what other people want.

I made em to a size so that people who are looking at buying these models from other sources can see a different view!

There should be a setting on your digital camera to reduce the size of the shots you take from, for example 12Megapixels to 6Megapixels (the lower setting will work just as well).

I'm sorry, you have a really nice collection but I actually felt dizzy looking at those pics because of the crazy angles you took them from.

As for which airline you should add, thats your business man!

Those are some impressive looking aircraft. I like the 732s - are they different registrations? Looking at the Star logo at the front, I didn't realise ANZ still had the -200s by the tine they joined the alliance.

To answer your question, I'd be tempted by QF since they have more variety in aircraft.

Not sure the Virgin Samoa 737-800 will be made so I had this custom done.

Plus the hybrid V Australia 777.

Is the Air New Zealand all black livery a special or a new livery being painted on all aircraft?

In the black scheme:
They have currently flying 1x 777-300er between NZ and USA
2x a320 domestically between Auckland Wellington and Christchurch
And 2x Beechcraft 1900d planes flying around north island
