re: kev747's collection

Now with these latest arrivels I am getting very close to the 600 mark in my collection. I never thought I would ever get anywhere close to 600 models when I started collecting!

When I started I just wanted to collect one aircraft from each airline in the world (the largest in the fleet especially 747's) then I would stop collecting but then I started building fleets of my favourite airlines, I seem to have gone Lufthansa, KLM and BA crazy!
I didn't focus on charter airlines now I am tempted to build a TUIfly fleet, also I never wanted to buy cargo planes, I finally bought one last year and now I have over 20! And the list goes on!
At least for now I still haven't broken my rule of not buying any short haul planes from the American, Asian or Australasian continents as these don't come to Europe.

I have a few models on order which will bring me to 600, I am just wondering which will be the 600th model (maybe a Turkish 77W new livery?) I will post photos of these when they arrive.

It's inevitable. Once you start collecting your collection will grow and grow at nearly every announcement. You've just been bitten by the collecting bug.

At the rate you are collecting models Kevin, I calculated that it will take exactly 2 years, 4 months, 9 hours and 22 minutes to overtake Alessandro as the "Big Daddy" of 1:500 collecting . Keep it up.
Indeed the IL-96T is a beautiful plane, the passenger version would have looked stunning.

How did you did you manage to calculate this?

Indeed I seem to have gone a bit mad with my collecting in 2012 especially towards the end of the year. There was a period before this I wasn't collecting as much but I seem to be catching up now. I think it will slow down though in 2013, we will see.

re: kev747's collection

Kevin, you've got such a wonderful fleet...since u have so many heavies, why don't u make an airport based on LHR or LAX or HKG or SYD??? just a suggestion...I think with the BA ones, u should go for LHR Terminal 5

re: kev747's collection

The Azerbaijan fleet is great. I like the Boeings and the ATR
Too bad they don't come with a registration...

Yes, I really only wanted the boeings but had to buy the whole set to get them, now I have the others I like them too.
Indeed it is a shame about the registrations

Thank you Solicitor!
That is a great idea about the airports! Indeed LHR Terminal 5 would be perfect with all the BA's I have.
I think this would be a good project for 2013!

Well, my friend... I was offered and accepted an "unwanted" AZAL 757. Would've liked to find the 767 aswell, but im happy with the 757.
