Recently just got hooked to this new hobby, I hope I don't buy more and more..

The very first set I got is an Inflight 1:200 747-400 Qantas in HK..



Initially wanted to get the A380 SQ 1:200 plastic model on board which cost just S$70+, but it ran out of stock.. So googled and found this shop in HK which sells soo many models, and managed to convince myself that a diecast one is of much better build quality.. In the end paid S$260 for this..

It weighs almost 2kg.. If anybody knows where can I get a good stand for this, do let me know.. Thanks! :)

Sure!

West Main Toys

http://www.westmaintoys.com/

I was so amazed and engrossed with the entire shop that I forgot to take photos of the shop. You'd be shocked when you see their window display..

Toymax is another one which has good reviews online.. But their shop is smaller.

http://www.toymaxco.cc/

I went on a sunday, Toymax was closed so I just peeped from outside.

As far as I know (and a mere 1 week into this new hobby), Inflight scale models are the most detailed, but also most expensive.. Can see that they really put in a lot of effort in it, even the turbines can turn when you blow air into it.. it's also limited edition too, my Qantas is one of the 250 worldwide.. Too bad nobody produce any 1:200 diecast A380 model yet, but I'm eagerly waiting for it :)
