    Default my collection

    really small, and I only started this because I received a legit 787 model as a gift

    i have 5 models

    these 2 are old and abused, bought on a flight in 1996, i was 5-6. go figure, i did not know what collecting was, now i feel bad, but 1:600s are too little for my cup of tea
    schabak united 772 1:600
    schabak united 744 1:600


    one from Regan library, one is matchbox, LOL
    1:500? vc25a
    ? scale dc-10

    now, my new toy, the details are amazing, solid plastic design, but the engines are a bit off scale imo, still, i love it!
    hogan wings for boeing, 788, 1:200

    your collection is small but I am sure it will grow. do you have an airplane store anywhere near you? if you like detail, buy from Gemini200 if u like bigger planes, gemini is very good for detail

    yea, my ideal collection size i want are the 1:400s, and i have locked into geminis as my ideal brand after doing some research and quality observations. the gemini 200s are nice, but cost a bit steep, as for hobby shop, there is like this place called pacific coast hobbies somewhat close to me

    The Gemini 1:400's are very good, but so are Phoenix, Aeroclassics, Big Bird, and JetX

    I notice you didn't include Dragon Wings, but you might as well if you include JetX. They break just as easily and I'm pretty sure DW manufactured the models for JetX.
