Hi forum. I'm a collector of 1/200 military aircraft and have an ended up with some extra aircraft that might be of interest to others who collect this category or have become interested after the release of Hogan's new 1/200 Zero.
I am replacing the complete air wing on my 1/200 scale USS Intrepid carrier and ended up with 15-20 handcrafted 1/200 scale models of; F4U Corsairs, TBD
Avengers, SB2C Helldivers, and F6FN Hellcats (night fighter). I have examples of aircraft with both open and closed wings. You can get an idea of the quality at the Fine Art Models site (Essex Class
I feel like these are very high quality reproductions (probably at or slightly below the Zero) but most importantly, they very rare since they are each hand-cast (resin, PE) and finished in the former USSR and to get them you must be willing to invest $12,000 in a model aircraft carrier.
I'm honestly not sure how I would price them at but my cost / aircraft to replace them was about $63.00 with a 1 year wait. That might prove a bit steep unless you're a collector interested in acquiring a few examples that is extremely rare.
I am also looking for hard to find 1/200 military subjects (especially the Western Models B-36 Peacemaker) so if you have something in high quality, 1/200 military that you'd like to trade (assuming I don't have it yet), then fire me a message.
At any rate, thought I'd put it out there for anyone who was interested.
