It appears that diecast aircraft series can be also very interesting.Nice collection Wildcat.I like the Stuka the most. :D

BTW. There has been available diecast WW2 fighter serie in Poland, some of them looked really nice.That's a pity I haven't had any pics of these.
 
Very nice. Do you buy the accuate armour models or are they the same thing???

I've seen a RAAF spitfire I like in 1/48 but its about 140 dollars. Bit rich for a student. lol.
 
Thanks for the comments guys! Heinz I buy the 1:48 Armour collection by Franklin Mint and yes they aren't cheap! Here's Clive Caldwell's Spit.

Lovely!!!!
Is the mossie 1/48 aswell?

I've seen a Liberator aswell at one time or another.

Do you collect any Corgi aircraft aswell??
Theres one thats always caught my eye the 1:32 Mosquito with 'cookie' bomb and trolley.

Sorry Heinz I forgot to reply, yeah the Mossie is 1:48 and weighs a ton! all my models are 1:48 which is the scale I prefer.
I do own 2 corgi models but I don't like them as much so I stick with the Franklin Mint collection.
More pics soon.
 
Dunno Matt. Here is my SBD, this was the first one I bought and one of my favourites.

actually this may be a dumb question but do you get any extras with the models, ordance, ground crew etc....

and do the under carriage retract at all have changeable parts.

Apart from the stuka of course lol.
 
Both models look very nice :). Wildcat, you have said they were 1:48 scale models so if they are made of metal they have to weigh a bit.Do you know what is the weight of one model or all your collection?
