Hello everyone! My name is Bryce Rea, and I have been collecting both metal and plastic 1:200 scale model airliners now for ten years. I have also been collecting 1:24 scale NASCAR models for about the same time, but that collection isn't nearly the size of my airliner collection. I'm a regular contributor to Model Airplane Collectors, and enjoy it very much! I have been with MAC since the very beginning.

One of those "learning" videos that teaches kids about things. They were talking about Southwest being the official airline of Seaworld and showed how they brought penguins onboard. From that day I always wanted to see one of the three Shamu's in person.
Over the next 17 years I saw every single Southwest…Continue
GeminiJets - Probably the best known 1:200 manufacturer. Their models are all made of diecast metal. They are also probably the most reliable in "monthly" releases. They do seem to have some quality control issues from time to time, but my personal experience with Gemini over the years has been pretty…
