Personally I am a fan of IIAF. (Not IRIAF), Unfortunately can't find real IIAF model.
All F-4, F-5 and F-14 are with IRIAF signs.

I have always liked fighter jets, just recently getting educated in them a bit.

In fact this one:

https://www.dundurn.com/books/flight-patriot

This is a gripping, page-turning memoir of a US-trained Iranian fighter pilot who flew in the Shah of Iran’s and the Ayatollah air force.

I don't know anything about fighter models, but it's neat to see what they look like, too. Cool stuff.

My new camera arrived today (Sony Cyber-shot DSC RX100) and I'm just starting to get the hang of it! As I said in the 747 thread, I'm no Richard Stretton yet. But this camera has a much bigger image sensor, which I hope to learn to take advantage of more as I get more skilled with the camera.

Here is some of my backlog of acquisitions since my old camera's flash broke.

First, a long-sought SMA Air California 737-100 N471GB. I've been after one of these for years, and got it from an eBay seller who's has a lot of good Aeroclassics / Big Bird / SMA stuff.



Next, an Aeroclassics Nordair 737-242C CF-NAB. I saw one like it at YYZ in 1984.



Last, an Aeroclassics North Central DC-9-30 N961N in an unusual livery that remained on the aircraft in Republic titles for a while.



More to come as I get working with my new camera!

Jim

That Air California 737 is a beauty Jim! I've had my eyes on one for a long time and really should pull the trigger on it before it's gone.

I will have some photos of my latest acquisitions in the coming days. With my collecting slowing down I've found myself focusing more on my other hobby which is running. But I'm still keeping an eye out for those must have models!

Cpt Canuck--Terrific Australian and Trans Australian models. A scene I have learned some about from RStretton's blog discussions of domestic Australian aviation.

NeedleNose--all those are great models. I own them all myself (Though my Presidential BAE-146 isn't a hybrid). As a 40-something American who looked at 70's and 80's regulation and Deregulation airliners in my childhood, and first flew aboard airliners back then, those carriers are all happy memories.

You have expressed my sentiments far better than I could've put into words. When I was 10, my father took me to a park just off the north end of DCA's main runway called "Gravelly Point". You could see the pilots' sunglasses and neckties through the cockpit windows as the old iron birds would fly 50 feet over your head! On Friday afternoons (when traffic is the heaviest), the DC-9s, 727s and 737s would parade down the Potomac one after another showing off their grace and beauty. Now it's CRJs, ERJs and Q400s with an occasional 757 and late-model 737. I still like to go there now and then, but it just isn't the same.

There were two Republic DC-9s that brought me home on leave from Army basic training, so that one holds a special place dear to my heart.

I've lived in DC for many years and have yet to get to Gravelly Point, although I've flown over it countless times. Never got to fly Republic, but they served my home ROC the last two years of their existence!

My first air trip was ROC-DCA in the early 70's at age 3, when UA flew the route with a 737. In eighth grade in 1982 my parents and I came here a month after Air Florida 90, and I remember seeing other Air Florida planes here.

In the 1970's, ROC was American, Allegheny, and United, and then Eastern. Lots of 707's! I'm just old enough to remember Mohawk Airlines BAC-111's in Indian Head and Buckskin liveries, when Allegheny bought them.

My grandma lived about 70 miles from ORD, so a couple of times my parents took me up there as a child in the 70's, and I saw my first 747...United in Friend Ship colors! I flew to Florida a couple of times on Eastern (ROC-ATL-SRQ) and LAX for Christmas 1978.

Thus, my key interest in 1:400 diecast are the 70's and 80's....my collection is organized by decade from the 1970's to the present, with a set aside ROC section. Here's a picture of the Rochester collection as it stands today.

You gotta get there sometime when the weather's nice. Make sure planes are landing from the North to the South. If traffic moves the other way, the planes takeoff overhead - much higher altitude - not as impressive. If you can get there during fairly strong crosswinds, the show is even better!

My first flight was in a Piper Cherokee when I was 5. It was really noisy and I was too small to see out the window, but still a fond memory nonetheless. My second flight was more special. When I was 13, I saved-up my paper-route money to fly from Dulles to Philadelphia and back, and somehow convinced my parents to let me do it alone! TWA twin globes L-1011 going up and a twin stripe 707 coming home. How odd that the newer plane had the old livery and the older plane had the new...

You have a nice collection of planes! Most of them could be seen at DCA and the rest (save for a few) could be seen at IAD.

I think they're Hogan's 1:200. They're too detailed for 1:400.

You can see Dragon's 1:400 F-15 here. And looking at the scale chart, 1:400 Tomcats would be less than 2 inches long.

Still nice models though.

Thank you, I've been collecting for a long time. I took a similar trip as a teenager, when my parents, brother, and I flew to New York City for a day when I was 16. People Express had just entered ROC and was flying $19 each way off-peak. So we flew down in the morning, spent the day at art museums, had dinner in Times Square, and flew home in the evening. An awesome day.

Here's a Blue Box TWA double-globe L-1011-100, N31018, in my 70's section. I never got to fly TWA, unfortunately. Glad you did!

Here's a nice recent addition: Aeroclassics Midway DC-9-30 N8944E in bare-metal 90's colors, shortly before the carrier folded. This is a good example of the kind of USA Deregulation-carrier model Aeroclassics does that is much appreciated by those of us who were there.

Departing Lincoln International for home base during the biggest snowstorm in 10 years! Scheduled to arrive next week. Just hope there's no bomb onboard.

And hope that George Kennedy *is* on board. A terrific model! Here's my copy of the model, which I got for a low price because the paint above the cockpit windows is a bit scuffed. I'll replace it at some point. Yes, it needs dusting.

That is because it is an interesting (and very open-ended) thread.

Now, regarding Jim's (and Joe Patroni's) Trans Global B707, any scuff mark on that scheme could be corrected with a very careful and light application/dab of Tamiya chrome silver #x11 which after a short "dry" time buffs very well into its environment.
-- Good luck, Jim & scan all your pax well !

An interesting and open-ended thread, indeed. I really enjoy seeing everyone's pictures of their new acquisitions!

Thank you, Ted for the advice. I'll look up that paint and see what I can do! And yes, I'll make sure pax are properly scanned, and watch the weather forecasts!

Here are a couple of neat arrivals this week.

A long time ago, at Airliners.net far, far, away, more than one of us at this site likely saw endless threads about the comings and goings of the Continental Airlines "Peter Max" 777-200. Painted by artist of said name for a "NYC 2000" promotion, this 777 splashed color all over the boring CO Dunder-Mifflin globe paint scheme.

When Mr. Waffle offers one at a reasonable price during a collection sale, it's a fun model to grab. "Dream Jets" used what must be the old Gemini 777-200 mould. Sure, it's the old clunky Gemini gear, but it's otherwise a good model. N77014.





Next is this sharp Aeroclassics United Final Tulip Colors 767-300 N654UA. Great rich Aeroclassics colors, and their usual crisp detail.

Great 747's, Perraine. Dragon offers good-detail models that don't break the bank. The Wardair and Air Canada 747's have bright color. Some models DW has done haven't been done by others--like your Air Canada L-1011-385 (Blue Box did the -500).

Capt. Canuck--I've had my eyes on the Aeroclassics Fiji Airways A330 for awhile, that looks like a really snazzy model. Just saw the real thing at LAX in January! I posted my other Air Pacific / Fiji models in the Fiji thread. I'll keep searching.

Here's a recent acquisition from a Waffle collection sale, next to the model it replaces. This Aeroclassics TAP Air Portugal A340-313X CS-TOB (left) replaces my Dragon Wings TAP Air Portugal A340-312 CS-TOA (right). The Aeroclassics mould, colours, and finish are vastly superior. The nose, cockpit windows, and nosegear alone are a huge difference. Rich Stretton hasn't posted an A340 mould review at Yesterday's Airlines yet, or I'd link it!

One of my latest purchases gets onto the blog. The Airbus A300 was an effective people mover on trunk routes in Europe and saw service at many of the national carriers as well as charter airlines. I recently acquired this Bavaria Germanair example and was pleased to discover that it was cn12, the same aircraft as the Dan Air release. Here's her interesting and colourful history:

Rouge A321W by Aeroclassics. Probably my favourite A321 release.

Today I buy almost exclusively 1:400 die cast airliner models. But a long time ago, in an apartment far, far away in Steubenville, Ohio, I began my collecting hobby by buying a Wooster 1:240 resin Battleship United 747-400 out of a catalog. I don't remember where I got the catalog, but I still have the model today.

While I wait for Aeroclassics to produce a 1:400 diecast 727 or DC-9 in the Republic Airlines final 1984-1987 livery, I finally decided to drop $21 for the only model of this livery ever made in any scale (per the DiMA database). That is, a resin 1:200 757 made long ago by Flight Miniatures. So here it is. The Flight Miniatures models aren't nearly as accurate as good 1:400 diecast, but they'll do the job in a pinch.





And, of course, the classic Flight Miniatures box. Back in the late 90's and early 00's there were aviation shops at both IAD and BWI where I would buy resin models. At one time these classic little boxes with a photo of the model, and the airline name printed on the side, were a sign of joy for me.

Nice addition, Jim! Yeah, I can't believe we haven't seen ANY 1:400 releases in Republic's final colors. In fact, coincidentally, I was actually just thinking about that on the way to work today. Seems like AC should have covered the DC-9-30/50 and 727-200 a long time ago. I'd love to add some Mary Tyler Moore colors to my collection.

Yup, The Airline Superstore, no longer with a shop at IAD (Dulles), but alive and well in Windermere, FL. In 2004 my first 1/400 purchase was a Dragon Wings Laker Airways DC-10-10 from them. Maybe we should start a thread naming our first 1/400 purchase...

Sorry, I meant IAD and BWI. There was an aviation store in the old gallery area between B and C concourses at BWI. I want to say it was a branch of the National Air and Space Museum gift shop--once a good source of resin models--but I'm not sure. I got at least two of my Woosters there back in the day.
