THE DARK ART OF SELLING AIRLINE MODELS ON E-BAY Without any doubt eBay offers the most reasonable, sensible and well protected way of selling on the internet pretty much anything. Sellers and buyers are well protected though it has to be said if you do get an unscrupulous buyer (and it’s mostly buyers in my […]Read more "THE DARK ART OF SELLING AIRLINE MODELS ON E-BAY"
After what seems to have been the longest model drought since time began, April should start to show some new arrivals. I won’t buy direct from Velocity because it’s just too expensive and I’m not entirely sure they’ll be around long enough, so I got my jetBlue A320 Blueberries from an official retailer who actually […]Read more "April Arrivals…"

Such a great looking aircraft, MD-11F’s look awesome. I’ve been looking for a second UPS aircraft for a while, to go with the 757-200F I’ve had for some time.

Over the weekend I spotted something I really wanted on eBay. These aircraft are very familiar to me and I see them often, KLM likes to deploy a variety depending on demand and time of day to BHX and they regularly fly overhead. A Fokker 70 was just what I’d been looking for. The auction […]Read more "eBay auction madness and how to avoid it"
Very few people, even some employees realise how difficult life has been for Virgin Atlantic and what a labour of love and pride, extraordinary success and self inflicted failures it has been over the last 15 years. Commercial Mistakes in Aircraft Choices? The deeply personal war between whoever runs BA and Richard Branson has led […]Read more "Weekend View – it’s a new dawn, it’s a new day at Virgin Atlantic"
This is a model of the 1998 Lufthansa A321-131 D-AIRX released by Gemini in early 2005 for Lufthansa’s 50th Anniversary, apparently ‘only’ 2000 were made. I’d wondered if this release was ever made to be honest – I suspected it was but I’d never bothered to look it up. I became interested in it during […]Read more "Lufthansa A321-131 D-AIRX Gemini Jets GJDLH589 2005 Release"

When you only have space to have 28 aircraft on your diorama (and it doesn’t seem to matter what they are exactly) and you can only display each aircraft in your collection once every 12 change overs on that diorama, it’s time to check what you really want and really care about. Is the collection […]Read more "Sometimes you have to let some go…"
