  • Dragon Warbirds 1:72

    I've been looking at these models for a little while now. They look very good, but their a little too big for me...After shuffling stuff around and getting a new shelf, I've decided to get a couple of these models for that new shelf. Now my middle shelf will feature military aircraft in 1:72






    Very nice models! (please forgive the blur, i was doing the pictures quickly)

        The models range from $30 to $50, depending on what you get (ww2 fighters are the cheapest, these were more)

        They're very nice. The paint jobs are amazing, there's even a weathering/wear effect on some of the models. Lot's of detail in them. The wings on the F-14 swing. On other models, rudders/ailerons move, props spin, etc.

        The construction is also pretty solid. These models are all metal, no plastic. I accidently knocked the Hornet off the table I was putting it together on and nothing broke *phew!*

        Great value for $50.

            The WW2 stuff is very nice, the P-51's and Zero's were my favourites.

              Great models, I understand you in buying not only the squadron leader's mount but the wingman as well.

                I like to have sets...It seems incomplete other wise

                I'm thinking about getting some heavily frostted glass and putting halogen lamps under it to get a nice glow under these larger models. Should look quite nice.

                  ^Logic, should I would not focus on aircrafts I flew, I would also surely collect this way.

                    I try to do that, aircraft and airlines I've delt with in the past, or ones that serve local airports (Including their various types -- Love the BA 727s)

                    These models were good to break up the 105 1:400 airliner models. It's hard to pick a favourite among them all, but these two are close to the top.
