And let's get one thing straight. There's a big difference between a pilot and an aviator. One is a technician; the other is an artist in love with flight. — E. B. Jeppesen

Found yesterday that there is a model shop in Liège, so I had to make a visit... They mainly have old models but found some interesting and cheap ones.

UA 772 Battleship livery
KLM DC-10
BA 763 Golden Khokhloma (never seen that one before)
MU 738...but that was a Northwest Orient 727 in the box.

Also received some ebay orders,
Sun Country DC-10
Airbus A300-600 House colors
Varig MD-11

Pics will follow.

Vic, looking back through the first pics of your collection, I spotted something familiar! :))

This is a Signature Line. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

Yes, that's the one {thumbsup} I was not into travel / aviation at that time of these special liveries so I can't remember seeing any of these for real, but from what I've seen on ebay I would love to see them coming back.

I ordered a full length shelf of acrylic, picking up the brackets this weekend.

I have an A318 in house colors and an AA 752 in new colors on the way.

My collection only amounts to 5 aircraft and they're all in their boxes stored in my old room at my Mom's house. {vsad}

Hey, they spelled 'Continental' wrong on your 757-300 !
miamiair (netAirspace FAA) 06 Oct 15, 10:58Post
Two more additions:
All I need to complete the A330 family is a -200F. For the A340, need a -200 and I am done.

737's are going to ruin me. Need a -100, -300, -400, -600, & -700.

747, I need a -300 a -400 and a -400F.

Good grief. {facepalm}
