I used to have the Royal 757 and the Pepsi Concorde - I still have a poster of the Pepsi Concorde doing a low flyby on a runway. The AC DC8 is one I've been wanting for years - it being the first airplane I flew on - would like a larger scale though

I have some Northwest models...some diecast some snap-together. I suppose my favorite is the NW 787 Dreamliner. They ordered the planes, so they have models. But NW is now owned by Delta, so when I look at the model, I refer to it as the plane that never was.

World of Wings in Amsterdam Schiphol had a really nice model of a NW A340 in the bowling shoe livery back in the late 90s ... would have loved to have picked that one of but 'twas a bit pricey ... would have even more loved to have actually seen an A340 in that livery :)

I have been through a lot of scales ranging from my young teens to now, starting off with easily available locally Schabak 1:600's to 1:200 Flight Miniatures, around 2005, I was given about 30 1:400 Gemini Jets and Dragon Wings and SMAC models. And a few years ago, I started to collect 1:200 Hogans, Now I am hooked on GeminiJets200 with 4 of them in my collection and hoping to get more.

I just received this that I ordered for my birthday from last week:

NW was originally going to get the 340s. Decided the 330s would be better suited to replace the DC-10s

^^ I've seen models of the LH B767 despite it being a one off in their fleet. I've seen pictures of a model of a SK B727 but have never seen actual photos of an actual example. But a NW L1011? I've seen promotional models of a NW A340 but never a L1011

The 727 is a Sky Wings, think it is supposed to be a 200 but it doesn't have the rear door so maybe its a 100.

The 767 is also a Sky Wings. I think it is the earlier version as there are wide spaced windows, there was another version in which the windows were more prototypical.

The L1011 is also a Sky Wings, actually it says Northwest Orient. There is currently one on fleabay.
