These Models were sent over by Boeing to my Dad on delivery of the 1st 77L and 77W.

You can check out the manufacturer's website:

www.pacmin.com

A model the size i have costs about $200-300+ a piece.

Very Happy Prajay


Ah so they are Pacmins, nice. That price sounds about right.

Oh a second mortgage and lots of overtime! Nah, I collected those models over a period of 4-5 years and when I was a retailer I got a lot of them at wholesale prices.

Anyways, got this today, among others:

Phoenix Air India 777-200LR VT-ALC 'Assam'

I stopped because I didn't have the time to do it anymore and wouldn't have been able to provide the same level or service.

Anyways, yah, I can send you a model or two but all I have is 1/400. If you don't currently have a collection then I would suggest 1/400 as it's a really nice size. Not too big like 1/200 and not too small like 1/500.

Send me a PM.

Replied to your PM.

As for being your main man for models, like I said I don't retail anymore but I can recommend an excellent retailer here in the US.

Nice collection! At first I thought the display case went all the way around then realized it was mirrors. Where's the case from?

BTW, what are YOU compensating for? Don't think I didn't notice your edit. Wink

Good reason...I was just giving you a hard time because of your previous comment. Wink

Nice models there Bala.. I have them too (my collection is listed just above yours).
Looks like there was a problem with the shipment as the Varig MD11 at their Delhi outlet was damaged too (broken landing gear!)

Meanwhile ... my small fleet should shortly see some new additions, curtesy Nick.

Thanks!..and wishing all of you a very happy new year.
Started off my collection with a Schabak SIA 747-400 followed by an AI 747-200.Had a couple of early ERTL (BA and SAS) models as well.Still have the SAS DC-10 ertl model.
I used to make 1/72,1/48,1/144 scale kits mainly from Academy,Revell and Airfix.Its been years now since i made one.Had also tried my hand once at making a balsa wood rubber powered Fw-190.I completed the fuselage and wings seperately but then it wouldnt align on the final assembly.
There was a shop near marine lines station (i dont think its there any more) which used to sell kits and a limited amount of paints from Humbrol.Its shifted to a new location now i think.He also had a lot of RC models (gas and electric) of airplanes and cars.
