My favorite is the BEA De Havilland Rapide. Very COOL. :D


BTW - This model fascinates me. Would have loved to see it fly. No room for display though. Sorry I have no picture.
Schuco 1/72 Dornier DO X 1929 Flying Boat Model 3551700

The 12-engine Dornier Do X, the largest, heaviest and most powerful flying boat in the world at that time, was designed as a transatlantic passenger aircraft. Although it was equipped with twelve radial engines, each of them boasting nine cylinders, its performance on the planned long-distance flights was not particularly convincing. The Do X achieved a cruise speed of 175 km/h at an altitude of 1,000 metres. However, the plane required 14 minutes to reach this speed and altitude. These limitations combined with the large number of required refuelling stops meant this impressive aircraft was not commercially viable.

Dornier created a landmark in aircraft construction. Many later developments profited from the experience gained in the production and usage of the Do X. After just three years in operation, the largest ever flying boat became the centrepiece at the new aviation museum in Berlin, where it remained until being destroyed in an Allied air raid during World War II. SCHUCO has now produced a highly detailed zinc die-cast model of the Dornier Do X, weighing roughly 5 kg, at the new scale of 1:72. Despite its size, this beautiful miniaturised model, measuring 55 cm in length and with a wing span of 60 cm, still manages to convey the actual power of the original aircraft.

Mucho dinero, muy largo.
Cheers and Happy Collecting,
Steve

V.nice. I've flown to Europe on One Elevens in the early 1970s. I think Court Line had them decked out in different colour schemes.

Have just spent an enjoyable hour wandering through this thread David.
What a great collection. Managed to find a couple or three I have flown on myself.
Won't likely go back into planes, but surely enjoy yours.

Two new additions to the BA 'World Tail Fleet'.

Airbus A219 with UK 'Canal Boat' tail.

Boeing 737 with Austrian 'Eidelweiss' Tail

Image

I didn't realise how much smaller the standard 737 was compared to the 219.

Indeed, the tail decos really add to the appeal.

Seeing these nice old DC3s makes me want to go out and build a model of another one!
