I believe the Ta and the second Horten are from a german collectors friend. Both are high finished and higher prices HPh- models. Nice shoots!!
I know the problem with a Luftwaffe heavy collection. I´ve got several captured planes (Mustang, lightning, Thunderbolt, B25) in my collection or in work. Because there are never to much German planes in a collection :wink:

Great way to display them. Looks awesome. I displayed some of my collection in a park once. Took a lot of set up, but it was worth it.

Hi again,

Thanks for the nice comments folks, I really appreciate them!

Some answers to the questions...

The second Ho229 is indeed a HpH model. The original HpH sales price for this model was years ago in the 2500-3000 usd range!!!
I spotted this one (coincidentally) in the german eBay - it was there for over a month or so...
The asking price started somewhere from the 2000'ish range, but nobody threw their bucks in. :D
At the end of the day the asking price had dropped substantially, and finally I made an offer... I got it for less than 1/3 of the original HpH price!
(But still it's the most expensive model in the collection.)
Well, what else can you do than collect 1/18 Luftwaffe?? :lol: :lol: :lol:

However, the Ta152H is not a HpH model, it's just my own custom conversion piece (as many of you know).

Cheers,
Juha

Juha,
congrats for the catch in ebay. I ´ve watched the Horten all the time my friend put it in ebay. But I´ve got Matthews version and the HPH was much to expensive for me.
Nice work at your Ta I really thought it is a HPH. Well done!!!
If you need more German planes --> think about the captured US-planes.
The germans even got a Corsair--> nobody knows if it ever flew in german services but they got one for sure.
Best regards from Germany

Blackblast,
I really loved many of your outdoor pics, particularly some Vietnam scenaries and airbase atmosphere.
You wrote you've difficulties to get some 1/18th item shipped to Chile, but you have more than 1 of each model... 3 or 4 M1A1 Abraham??? For me, the shipping costs to Switzerland are nightmares, usually higher prices than the item shipped... So, I usually could'nt afford more than 1, with some exception.

Like rschaap, I had a great pleasure to display vehicles outdoor, I think I've once showed the following convoys:

I'm planning on doing a Vietnam diorama with a bunch of soldiers, custom M113's, M48's a Mutt or two and some Huey's from my collection. I'm very excited about setting it all up for the photos. The other forum members photos are very inspirational. I like this forum a lot.
