Charter 1:400 collection (was "The Dark Side").
 
Hi friends. After 2711 1:500 scale models, i finally succumbed to the Dark Side. There are so many beautiful models in 1:400 scale, with so perfect moulds, that i have not more resisted. My thought is to buy European charter airlines 1:400 models, and i started today with two marvellous airplanes (i will post the photos).
But... what the Dark Side is for me? I will post a long list.

Great Charter, Welcome to my World!!! Im thining of collecting a lot of 1/500 737-800s. Especially TUI and others such as Travel Service. Along with A320s and A319s such as Niki, Germanwings etc.

Great! I was lucky that my first desired model was produced only in 1:400 scale and later discovered the advantage of the scale compared to 500 for detail and price over the larger scales. Just wondering how long did it take you to get to 2711?

Who makes those models I highlighted in bold? I know DW did a trial Thomas Cook A330-200, which I imagine is very hard to find, but who makes the other three?

What i'm worried about is can GJ cope with lists the same as he sent Herpa :eek:...

Nice, I actually wanted to start with 1:500 because, to be honest, I felt like real collectors collected Herpa, mostly because I saw videos of 10 year old kids who were Gemini fanboys. I've changed, though, and it always seemed like 1:400 models are a better value, because they're larger at about the same price.

welcome to the dark side, Allessandro. You know that it will not be done after you got all models of your list, because before you got all models from the original list the list itself will have grown and then there'lll be a lot of new releases too. What you're doing now is as dangerous as stepping in the forbidden area in front of a running engine. It will suck you in. But I think you know all that already, right ? So again, welcome, good luck and take care :)

Air2000 A321 is a Dragon model, while HiFly A320 and Martinair A320 are Phoenix models (HiFly is a OceanWings shop production).

Don't worry my friend, i want to create a stronger link between 1:400 and 1:500 scale, but they are not the sama and they can't be the same.

What you have written is exactly my fear: i will never stop until i will have all the charter airlines in 1:400 scale, and this is very difficult to obtain! But this is the Dark Side and i hope that "the Force will be with me...", also if i not yet understood if i am Dart Vader (Dart Neos as Sergio told me:envy:) or Luke Skywalker...
