MAC Youtube channel (for spreading the word)

Hey Guys,

I wanted to suggest creating a YouTube channel for MAC where MAC members can post videos related to aviation and models. These videos of course should be made by the members themselves. Those videos could include:

  • Model reviews
  • Model un-packaging
  • Short documentaries about…

My French models

I dedicate this post to my dear friend Jean-Francois Quillien, a great collector and author on SMC.

 

I own a few models for French made vehicles (both aircraft and AFVs). All of them carry the French Armed Forces livery except for the Mirage IIIE which carries the Brazilian Air Force livery.

 

1- Mirage 2000:

Moving my collection

During my marriage preparations, one of the most difficult tasks was moving my aircraft and tank collection from my dad's house to my own apartment. Lucky for me, both houses are within the same building. But still moving the collection required a lot of effort and creativity.

The first step I made was to buy a new cupboard (to house the planes and tanks that were scattered all around my dad's house) and move it to my…

More space !!!

My armor collection is growing very rapidly and it seems that I am facing exactly the same problem every collector is facing and that is.... space !

I have ran out of room and I can't find any place to put my models. My collection will soon be scattered all around the house. I had to come up with some solution for housing a few more models I have ordered.

What I did was…

MiG-29 or A380 ??

This morning I was surfing a few die cast model websites and thought if I was given the choice between flying on a MiG-29 or fly first class on an Airbus A380, what would I choose? I chose the first. So did my brother.

So let me ask all my friends on Scale Model Collectors the same question, if you were given a choice between a free flight on a MiG-29 or first on an Airbus A380 what would you…

How stealthy is your collection? (Updated 10/05/2014)

Hey Guys.... Here is another blog post illustrating another encouraging factor to buy models. Today I am going to talk about stealth. I have been very interested in buying models of stealth aircraft. But before I share with you the photos of the stealthy models I own, let us first see what stealth is all about.

How fast is your collection ??

We all collect aircraft models that have a certain significance to us. One of those factors of significance is speed.

Since the start of the cold war and until the introduction of 4rth generation jet aircraft, jet aircraft designers were interested in speed and altitude. They wanted their planes to go higher and faster. From there the race started. MiG-15s and F-86s fought each other in MiG Alley to start high speed jet dogfights. F-100 Super Sabres and MiG-19 Farmers broke…
