    I started to collect metal models when I was a teen, around my 15 more or less. My first fighter was a Messerschmmit Bf-109 from Model Power (scale 1:100), which I still preserve, being one of my favourites. Since that moment, the aviation world became my biggest hobby, starting a collection that today increase day by day. In this thread I will show you not only the models I bought, but also the ones I made. I have also attached a list with all my planes. It´s in spanish, sorry about that. Enjoy it.

    It´s quite difficult to find models of fighter or bombers that served or are serving with the spanish "Ejercito del Aire". I have almost 300 models and only a couple of them wear the spanish colours. The reason? I have no idea; perhaps spanish market is not so important for builders or maybe its because we didnt take part in the WWII (Thanks to God). Anyway, these are my fauvorites, including the Hawkers.

    Gecko, great collection!! I see a Fw 190 '13' that jan might like!

    Suggestion: When posting pics, try to keep the size width to 800 to 1024 pixels as the pics are very large.

    A great collection, but please do resize the pics. They take time to load, and need to be scrolled across the screen.
