Re: New plane tag to go with DHL 757

A nifty little item. I was intrigued and found one of these for a KLM 747 and ordered it. I imagine I will set it in my display case just as you did.

Re: What could have been...

I too once owned a 1:300 747-400 by Jet-X or maybe Star Jets. I did love the size - felt it was perfect especially for large planes. Mine was KLM and the only complaint was the mold was not great. ...

Re: Herpa 580038 F-15 Eagle Expensive?
