Default Some Collection Sale Arrivals

Despite all my whining about diminishing marginal utility, I was lured in by some cheap collection sale items.

I'm not sure why these were so cheap, I think they're excellent models of interesting prototypes (but maybe they have fatal flaws of some kind)

In any case, I recommend these, the next time you see them for a good price and are looking for a nice classic jet.

First up - an SMA model of the once ubiquitous Northwest DC-9 - special to me for many reasons. I wish they made N8933E, but this will do.




Next up an Aeroclassics Mohawk BAC 111 - I watched an interesting Youtube video about these guys and their daily management meetings - seems like a nice airline but now another addition to my US Air heritage fleet.

That is a nice collection there - quite the variety.

Thanks Abraham! Along with books it's my way of going back in time.

That Northwest DC-9 came from my collection. Nice to see it went to someone on here.

Cool! She's a beauty and represents a plane I made a surprise visit to my wife on when we had to live apart for a few months due to a job transfer.

I call it my "Secret Visit" plane - my ride was actually on N8933E, but this will do.

She went to a good home with lots of classic friends to hang out with.

How come you sold it or did you sell all your 1:400s? If so what are you doing now?

Nah, I only sold a few. Trying to focus more on Continental now, I'd like to complete the fleet eventually.
