Default Seek and he shall find!

Firstly, hope all you guys and your families are staying healthy.

I know, it’s not a model (so I put one in the image just in case) but I’ve been looking for one of these Egyptair desk flags for a very long time. Thanks to a random ‘passing the time’ eBay search, I found this mint condition ones. So now my Egyptair collection is complete.

The seller is UK based, and put a note in the flag box stating that he has a substantial number of these types of things for sale. He goes by the sellers name of oddsandends 1990. The flag was with me the following day, postage was free. If you’d like further contact details, PM me.

Neil.

Nice find! When I bought a couple Pan American planes last year, the lady added a freebie...a Pan Am desk flag. I made a base out of white composite moulding and it is displayed with my PA planes.

Thank you. Nice to hear you’ve added more models to your collection. I have a collection of flags without bases. Any chance of a picture of the base that you’ve made?

Neil.

Thanks Robert. I know it sounds ridiculous but I was so thrilled to have found it, finishes off my Egyptair collection a treat

Congratulations MSR777. I totally agree and believe your "Seek and he shall find!" banner. I looked and looked everywhere for almost a year for 2 models: House Color 767-400 and the Austrian A340-300 with the Austrian Philharmonic livery both by Herpa. I found them not on eBay but on some obscure websites. The 767 came from a toy shop in Thessaloniki, Greece and the A340 from a Choral Music website(!) in Innsbruck, Austria. Perseverance and determination= Success

Thank you. An Austrian A340 from a choral music website! That’s an amazing acquisition for sure. Toy shops can certainly provide the odd rarity or two. Over the years that I’ve been collecting these large models, I’ve come across some at toy swop meets and even one or two in charity shops. Happy collecting!
