I've been stocking up. Whenever I see a "cheap" donor, I grab it. This lot should last quite a while...

One of the 744s will become the Koguty Lowikie (Poland) tail - like the beauty that Hu posted here. Another will become one of the Ndebele (South African) tails. The others will have to wait.

The Landor Children's Conference is one day destined to become the Landor British Asia..

The Gemini 757 will become the Waves of the City (USA), which is one of my few missing 757s. The JC Landor 757 will (hopefully) turn into a Caledonian.

The 737s will be filling out gaps in the collection over time.. Delftblue, Grand Union, Rendezvous, Bennyhone......

So - Robert, was it you that picked up the Custom BOAC Fantasy 380 after it was relisted?

no john, not me. didn't go a lot on it really. but he is going to attempt to do me one of these!! just a resin one as diecast would be expensive.

Very nice John....are you still going ahead with the 'Water Dreaming' 744? I would like to have that one to be my last 744 BA World Tail. Is Al still doing your customs?

We need a BA 767 too!!

Thanks. I saw that. It looks interesting, but I am not a fan of the Skymarks 380. Compared to the Herpa, and now the Gemini BA models it looks clumsy, and I don't like the angle of the wings..
