Default My 1/500 starter collection, more to come...

Hi
I recently ordered 3 1/500 models to start off a small collection, I'm only gonna keep this small and get maybe 1-2 models a month, I am really impressed with the quality and detail of these models. They are all Herpa wings:
Herpa 1/500 taag Angola boeing 707-349
Herpa 1/500 taag Angola Lockheed l-100-20 Hercules
Herpa 1/500 Lufthansa regional Canadair cl-600
Here are some pics, sorry if the iPad camera wouldn't focus properly.

Unfortunately not, I'm sticking to just Lufthansa, taag, pan am etc...
Condor is not in my criteria but maybe at a good price..

I had the Condor 757 'Rizzi Bird" years ago. It was a benchmark at the time for tampo printing and I regret offloading it in my big 1:500 sell off years ago.
There were a few super models that came out in the golden era of 1;500. Ones from memory were:
Sabena Bae-146 'ribbons'
Lufthansa CityLine Canadair
Continental Peter Max 777
amongst others.

I kept about 50+ models from my once mega-collection and I still have a soft spot for them as they are the models that got me started into all the other scales.

You can buy heaps of first gen models for great prices these days.

Would be awesome if there was some retro fitted gears you could replace the 4wd wheels that accompanied the earliest releases.
