Nice collection, Targ. Have you checked out Dragon Models? They make more detailed tooling than Corgi.

I used to order my diecasts from diecastdirect.com, they're pretty good and reliable.

P.S. The BlitzPig photo brought back a lot of good memories.

Thanks Lizard, yeah those were the good days! The sim had just come out and the excitement was nuts around here!
Anything went on these boards and the laughs were non stop!
I will check out the dragon models, the corgi's are good but sometimes they are not. The 109 in the pic is my least favorite as the workmanship was poor.
The Zero on the otherhand was awsome! The weathered paintjob and all http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/53.gif
I have been looking for a Dora for some time and would love to see some Russian birds!

Does anyone know when Corgi will announce their July-December range?

Yeah those are definately cool... but if you do a little research, read a couple books and get the right tools for the job then making regular scale models always gives me much more satisfaction and give a look that is far more realistic tahn the die cast stuff. Go to hyperscale.com and check out some of the gallery there and you will be amazed. The ability to make a nice clean model with incredible weathering effects is really not very hard. Its a mattat of patience and experimentation. The end result far exceeds what these companies can offer. I used to think the Corgi stuff was great. I have a few in my office here. But since I have gotten into scale modeling there is no looking back. The amount you learn about different aircraft as you research your project is an added bonus.
