I've used the same photo to convince my wife that I'm not the only one.

Hey Snake , you know if you don't get them now you will never get them, and they are not getting any cheaper.

Agree Studly, agree. Sooner you get what you want, the less it is going to cost. Can't argue with that. :wink:

But would also say that your purchases have been well thought out, and you have picked up some choice models. I think your selection has been pretty good, but it is always about how you feel about them, and not somebody else. :wink:

Happy to see you get the RAAF Hornet, and the RAAF Mustang, as those are very limited numbers, and hard to come by. Even better that they are Australian, as you blokes don't get much in 1/18.

Anyway, nice to see your collection, and think you have some fantastic 1/18.

Well done, mate. :D

Any one have photos of their collection or updated photos they want to add. I'm sure everyone would enjoy seeing new stuff.

Hello all,

Here we go - my humble collection laid side-by-side on the living room floor:

Image

Image

Yes, I know - it's a bit Luftwaffe-heavy... well, just can't help it... :D

You may spot some real custom gems, like Pickelhaube's Ho229A-0, JNewboy's Fw190D-11 and Nathan's full wingload of Ruhrstahl X-4's ready to be loaded on the HpH's Ho229...

Also, here is a size comparison of the various fighter generations. (from left to right: Fw190D - Ho229A - Ta152H - Me262A - Bf109G):

I have a gut feeling I might run out of my display-space sometime in the future... 8)

Greetings,
Juha
