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

Hi all, I have a modest fleet of 110 (mostly 400 scale)...I would like to share with you my 500 scale fleet consisting of Jet Airways, Virgin Atlantic, KLM (B744 with another (PH-BFS) and A330 on approach), Delta A330 (on approach), Lufthansa and ofcourse...BA
this is Part I consisting of KLM B744 (a tribute to my friend Thom...), Emirates (a tribute to my friend Cal....), Virgin Atlantic and Jet Airways...
Part II will be Lufthansa, Part III will be my speedbirds and Part IV will be my second part of my tribute to Thom...(once PH-BFS, PH-AKA and N821NW land safely!)...hope you all enjoy viewing my modest fleet as much as I do sharing!!!

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

You're welcome Thom...eagerly awaiting the PH-BFS, PH-AKA and N821NW...and ofcourse the PH-BQF in 400 scale which will go straight into the other thread (which will be a tribute to you)...new Witty models are announced which include TWO KLM B744s PH-BFD and PH-BFF...will surely get them!!! I have a feeling that you will too...

Yes, I'm awaiting PH-AKA too (my first one broke..). I'll be honoured by the tribute my friend of the interesting KLM asia B772. Just me wondering; PH-BFD used to be a KLM asia B747 too, just like BFF but seems to be in the (old) regular KLM colours. I might get myself one.. But I might just get a 1:200 model for my desk or something

Thom, the PH-BQF is the regular KLM colours and not the KLM Asia...PHX released both KLM as well as KLM Asia!!!

Beautiful models my friend, you have realized very nice photos. Four great airlines, the Jet Airways B777-300ER is impressive.

When did PH-BFD drop the KLM asia livery? I flew to AMS on PH-BFD & back on PH-BFF last year, both in KLM asia livery. I really hope they can be realised in 1:500 scale...I'll surely buy them! Very nice experience on KLM flights .

At the beginning of 2013 I believe.. Along with PH-BFC. BFF, BFH, BFY, BFM and BFP still don't have the crown. I hope Herpa will release a KLM asia B747, but I'll get one anyways custom done from Allan!
