Great to see all of these. I remember seeing so many of them at LHR over the years.

Hi Solicitor, I have seen few pics of it already...you have some nice 1:400 models....it's an Advantage to collect the 1:400 BA models....the World Images were much better represented there compared to 1:500.

Re: Speedbird001 - My collection

We'll have to do something about the lack of 1:500 World Images!

Re: Speedbird001 - My collection

Here we go on (if you like)....a few more pics of the BA collection.

Let's turn back to times when BA's fleet was much more diversified compared to nowadays.....the age of the Trijets (note the HS Trident) !!!
Also included the leisure fleet of BA Airtours here.

Unfortunately, they hardly grace the skies anymore at all.

One of my best trips ever was on a BA DC10 MIA-LGW-MIA !
Fond memories...

Also added one of the unforgettable VC10's !!!
(I love that Jet, my car even has the number plate VC10)

Re: Speedbird001 - My collection

Well, now coming back to more recent times....
Efficient, yet not beautiful she will never be a replacement for me for the B 747.
The Boeing 777 or Triple Seven.

The Jumbo was, is and will for ever remain the Queen of the Skies for me !

Note the difference in size between the Union Flag -200 and -300ER series.
It's quite a massive beast.

On the first picture you can also see Triple Seven's in 2 different Rendezvous Versions, pink and yellowish.

Allan, fully agree. However can only be done on customs base.
BA will never allow anymore to have them produced. I had Long talks with someone I know at Herpa about it and it cost me roughly 1,5 years to convince them to produce a new Landor model (737). That was allowed by BA and my hope is that other models will follow, which we only had so far in OG moulds/gears.

Re: Speedbird001 - My collection

Continuing with the 767's....unfortunately very limited releases in 1:500 scale.

Re: Speedbird001 - My collection

Narrowbody Airbuses....whilst I dont really like them, you cant just ignore them when collecting BA models.

A318, A319, A320 and A321....all together at once.

Shorthaul experts over the years....

Starting in "ancient" times with the BEA Viscount via the Shorts 360 and RJ's to nowadays Embraer Jets (claustrophobia included these days)

No, they dont...that would be "perfect world".....there are of course different registrations or Versions though, but yes, there are also duplicates in the collection (the BA 737-200 Landor being a good example for that).

Re: Speedbird001 - My collection

I had some duplicates of the Landor 737-200 as well so I changed the titles. There are some photos in the custom section.
