1/72 Military

Hello all,

Wondered if anyone can help me with some information and guidance. Took a slight interest in Military aircraft models since watching Top Gun again

I'm more into collecting diecast pre-assembled models. I'm looking into RAF and USAF to be begin with. Where can I find such models and who is potentially the best brand to buy? Looking more into fighter jets rather than old prop warbirds. Plus any accessories to perhaps build a small diorama. Would also like to find out if there any pre-assembled heavy military aircraft such as C17s, C130s etc either plastic or diecast in this case. All models preferably with undercarriage.

Many thanks

Re: 1/72 Military

Don't wanna intrude but I found a 1:72 A-10 which I believe is Hobby Master. Didn't come with the original box. Also have a Forces of Valor UH60. Got them both for a bundle price of $30 at a local flea market. They are my crown jewels of my small collection and the detail is phenomenal. Hobby Master is kinda expensive but amazingly detailed. I wish I could afford more.

The only model I bought was a NATO E-3 Sentry. Sadly it was a brief interest and a factor of money and other things. I'd still like to get some fighters though at some point.
