Members,It has been a while since I have posted a blog post. I am making it my top priority from this moment on to bring all of you the best site possible for model airplane collectors and aviation…Continue
I collect 1/200 and 1/400 scale Die-Cast Airplanes. Right now I would have to say Gemini Jets is my favorite manufacturer. I currently have 284 planes in my collection. My favorite plane at the moment would have to be my 1/200 American Airlines 777-200 from Gemini Jets followed closely by the KLM 777-300. I started collecting in January of 2009 so I have not been at it for very long. I have always loved airplanes but had no idea about the die-cast planes being produced until a visit one afternoon to Trot's Toys and Collectibles in Overland Park, KS. I was hooked! I purchase almost every plane I get from Troy, with the exception of one or two that have long been sold out! I display my models in very large lighted curio cabinets. I find that having them in-closed helps to keep the dust off and protects them from being damaged. I cannot wait until Gemini Jets produces an Airbus A380 or even an A340 in 1/200 Die-Cast! I look forward to seeing everyone's collections as well! Enjoy the site!

These were taken with my iPhone and are not professional photos by far but I hope everyone will enjoy them! I am just going to quit yacking and start…Continue
