I think vivek has 1:400 scale models which costs an average of USD 15-20. I've been collecting 1:500 scale models. Mine are costing me about USD 12-17. Mine are mostly wide bodies.

Smaller ones might tend to go for less.

Hey Vabby/Gang,

Yes, the models I have are in the 1:400 scale.

The MH Heliconia model was picked up from the MH inflight shopping and cost me around 43$ i.e. around INR 2000. It is made by Gemini Jets and is a limited edition model

The rest of the models pictured above were bought locally. These are made by Dragon Wings and cost around INR 1200-1500.

Hey Vivek,

I had a question about DW. Are the wings plastic or metal?

Somehow, I've the impression that they are plastic.

Thanks,

the model is unique in the sense that newer ones will neither have this livery, nor Shark tail.
