Robin's collection!

Hello,

Last year October, I started this hobby of collecting 1:500 scale model aircraft. I got 3 models for my birthday, and quite quickly after that, I knew that I wanted to go a bit further and build an airport diorama.

Almost a year later, I now have 23 models . I just started building my airport diorama. It's not gonna be special or what, I just bought the airport set from Herpa with the buildings and I bought the ground foil.

I figured this is about the right to start making my "Collection post". Of course I will be adding more and more models to my collection and I will be keeping this thread up to date with all the new arrivals I will be getting in the future.

Almost all my models up till now are bought from the AviationMegaStore in Amsterdam... With a few exceptions.

Cheers and happy collecting!

Starting off with a good fleet. The Air New Zealand livery looks great on the A320SL.

I was quite lucky with the 787, got it at a model-train shop in Rotterdam. It was the last one in stock. Is it rare?

I like the Southwest 737. The only classic in my collection

Will do that soon, still need to attach the gates to the main terminal.

I'm not sure if the 787 is rare though. I've seen a lot of people looking for it so I thought I'd ask

Not sure if it has a "RARE" status yet but it definitely is hard to find considering everyone who has one doesn't want to part with it.

Re: Robin's collection!

What a lovely collection you have! Lucky that you have two of the Virgin A346. I must agree though that the Qatar B788 is quite hard to find nowadays. Been searching for that for a while now and still haven't gotten one.
