Re: Homzie's 1:500 Speedbirds and more...

My friends, ever since British Airways published its retirement schedules for its 57 Queens in 2009 (with the first one (G-BNLH) being retired in Oct. 2009), we knew that the BA B747-400 fleet was slowly dwindling.

A few BA B744s have been retired / written off (G-BNLL) / Stored.
The following BA B744s have sadly left the fleet

01. G-BNLA (SCRAPPED)
02. G-BNLB (SCRAPPED)
03. G-BNLC (SCRAPPED)
04. G-BNLD (STORED)
05. G-BNLE (STORED)
06. G-BNLF (STORED)
07. G-BNLG (STORED)
08. G-BNLH (STORED)
09. G-BNLI (STORED)
10. G-BNLJ (STORED)
11. G-BNLL (WRITTEN OFF CIRCA 2014 AFTER ACCIDENT AT JOHANNESBURG)
12. G-BNLM (STORED)
13. G-BNLR (STORED)
14. G-BNLS (STORED)
15. G-BNLT (STORED)
16. G-BNLU (STORED)
17. G-BNLV (STORED)
18. G-BNLW (STORED)
19. G-BNLX (STORED)
20. G-BNLZ (STORED)

20 out of 57 have already left the fleet, with only 37 active BA B744s.

This minor update is a tribute to another SpeedBird Queen which is about to leave the fleet next month. G-BNLY which is configured F14 J52 W36 Y235 is scheduled for retirement in March 2017. G-BNLY was delivered to BA on 10/02/1993. She will sorely be missed.
The good news is that she will still be active in my fleet with her scheduled for the Calgary rotation as BA 103 / BA 102.

Au Revoir G-BNLY (we will really miss you )

Here is G-BNLY prior to her departure to Calgary as BA 103 at 18:40 LT







The model is a custom model made expertly by our good friend Sergio. Thanks Sergio!!!

Re: Homzie's 1:500 Speedbirds and more...

Does anyone have the Emirates A380 "Real Madrid" A6-EOA? Like the actual plane (which was painted in Real Madrid colours), does the model also have the Real Madrid crest on its fuselage near the front door? I have seen pictures of the model on several retailer websites and noticed that the model doesn't have the aforementioned crest. My cousin is a Real Madrid fan and would like to surprise him with this model Kindly confirm. Thanks, my friends!!!

Re: Homzie's 1:500 Speedbirds and more...

My friends, does the Herpa United Airlines B77W have the official registration, as I read somewhere (can't seem to recollect where) that it doesn't have an official registration...could anyone kindly confirm this? Thanks!

The size of your collection doesn't necessarily portray your dedication towards them. In that sight, I think you outshine all of us.

Ale my friend, my A380 fleet stands at 14 with 2 more to come (both BA customs - G-XLEH and G-XLEJ).

I'm still awaiting a few BA B744 conversions (G-BNLJ, G-BNLK, G-BNLO) and 7 new ones (G-BNLB, G-BNLF, G-BNLP, G-BYGA, G-BYGB, G-BYGE and G-BYGG) after which I'm going to share a "family" picture of all my 57 BA B744s...how am I going to manage that??? I have absolutely no idea!!!

Thanks my friend...can't wait for Qantas A380 in new livery as well, wonder which will be the lucky A380 to be repainted first...I'm sure Herpa will make a 1:500 scale model! I'm still waiting for Herpa to release more EK A380 models in regular livery or one of the new ones without the Expo2020 sticker (one of the A6-EU* series).

I have compiled a list of BA B744s and understand the gravity of the task at hand...57 models in one photo will be very difficult so, I have divided them into 2. I am still awaiting 7 new models and 3 conversions into Union Jack tail. I'll click pics as soon as all land in my fleet...This is the list...


1:400 scale
G-BNLC LANDOR
G-BNLD UNION JACK (PRIDE)
G-BNLH WINGS (DENMARK)
G-BNLJ UNION JACK (CONVERSION COMING SOON)
G-BNLK UNION JACK (CONVERSION COMING SOON)
G-BNLM NDEBELE MARTHA (SOUTH AFRICA)
G-BNLO UNION JACK (CONVERSION COMING SOON)
G-BNLT UNION JACK (1:200 scale) - HOGAN WINGS

G-BNLU UNION JACK
G-BNLV UNION JACK
G-BNLW UNION JACK
G-BNLZ UNION JACK (CHANGE FOR GOOD)
G-CIVA UNION JACK (victoRIOus)
G-CIVC oneworld
G-CIVD oneworld
G-CIVI oneworld
G-CIVK oneworld
G-CIVL oneworld
G-CIVR UNION JACK
G-CIVT UNION JACK
G-CIVV UNION JACK
G-CIVW UNION JACK
G-CIVX UNION JACK
