Hello

Flyingdoc how many planes have you got in total?

And how many from which manufacturer?

Thanks,
Alvaro

It looks like I'm approaching 530! I'm surprised and just a little scared about that. God help me if Eherran's madness rubs off on me even a little when I visit him!

Re: Show Off Your Fleet!

Have seen a great few collections come through here since I posted this thread - thanks all for the contributions, hoping for more in future too...

I decided to take some photos today, to showcase some of my smaller fleets (after sorting through my boxes to try and reduce the space taken up in my room - I failed...)

Thai Airways - 3x B747-400's and 1x A340-500 (Brought to you by Gemini, Dragon & Phoenix)



Malaysia Airlines - Standard B747-400, Hibiscus B747-400 and Heliconia B777-200 (Brought to you by Phoenix, Gemini and Dragon)



Singapore Airlines - B744's, A380, A340 and B777's (Brought to you by Dragon and Gemini)



Virgin Atlantic - B747's, an A343 and 2x A346's (Brought to you by Gemini, Dragon and Big Bird Mk2). I never noticed the difference in silver before between the three B744's: Tinker Belle, Birthday Girl and Barbarella...



Would be interesting to get photos of my larger/MEGA-fleets, Cathay, BA and Qantas, but that will have to be another day when I have more time to unbox them, pose, shoot and put them back!

Thanks for looking,

Dan

Re: Show Off Your Fleet!

Hey, does anybody have any fleet updates? I got 3 more of the newest JetBlues so my fleet is up to 10! I've also got a pretty big U.S. Airways/ express collection now too...Pictures soon

(P.S. I'm not looking for a medal, just wondering/wanting to see new pictures! )

Re: Show Off Your Fleet!

Seeing the Malaysia T7 Freedom od Space there-has anyone heard anything about a 1/500 version of this model being produced?

Re: Show Off Your Fleet!

Welcome surviv0r, would love to see some photos of your fleet (combined planes ) some time! As for your flag... I think if you go up to the User CP link at the top of any of the forum pages you should be able to enter all your details and correct your flag.

Whereabouts in Oz are you?

Dan

Welcome to W900 survivor! Everybody here started somewhere - I think your 1 plane per airline rule is a great idea. The problem will be choosing which model to represent your airlines. Are you a 1:400 collector, 1:500 or other? I started in 1:500 but found it too restrictive for Australian carriers and too broad to be able to limit my spending. These days I'm mostly 1:400 with Australian rego's which was my rule. But rules were made to be broken!! Got hooked on InFlight 200's offerings and now have a smattering in that scale and also update select 1:500 fleets.

Hope you have great fun with us here - looking forward to your pics.

Doc

Re: Show Off Your Fleet!

Doc, I would imagine now that your collection has grown by leaps and bounds after your visit with Emiliano. Do you have any Qantas?

No kidding!!! Emil was actually very generous and I did get a little carried away buying souvenirs.

The Customs guy at Melbourne Airport actually asked me if I was carrying back an aeroplane in parts when he saw my two large suitcases. I told him only small ones.
Then my bags went through the xray machine and he just laughed!!!!
