  • LARGE Scale Models

    Hey, I'm looking for the really large scale models that you often see at airline baggage claims or offices. These are sually 3-4ft. long. Are they available to the public? Does anyone know where the airlines purchase these.
    I'd like one for a room I'm setting up.

    Thanks

    1/100 scale models is the one I recommend for you.

    Mega Models

    Executive Series

    Check out the list on the left side here:

    Or go half of that, go for 1:200 if you want to save space, I only collect 1:400 scale models, and I already run out of space. I will put some photos of the scale. Be right back..

      Really big models...

      Hi photogenik,

      (Max; you recommend a 1/100 scale? ~LOL~ That's a quite a step down from the 5 to 6 ft wingspan aircraft he asked about, LOL!)

      Here's a link to a place that makes the big display aircraft...

      Every once in a while one will turn up on ebay, but usually a manufacturer of them will have links to associated sites, and that may be your key to getting one? Good luck getting your hands on one!

      I admired a 1/6th scale NAMC YS-11 that was displayed in the terminal at Beckely, WV, back in 1978. The left side was see-through, complete with passengers and carry-on luggage! Even the pilots heads were turned, as if looking out the window towards their drooling admirer!

      Take care,
      Frank

        These models used to be commissioned by airlines and were not made avialable to the public, now they are targeted by collectors always on the ready to take out the check book. gallery of models up for sale
