And there you have the main collection, all 32 B747's complete, well as Chapter 01 of my B747 Collection goes, I put 5 years and 4 months of work in this one, time for Chapter 02 right
So here it is then Chapter 02 of my Boeing 747 Collection, it is finally going to happen!

On May 24, 2020 Dad & I shall go to a place where they can make me 8 of 16 glass shelves , these will be modified and built in to the main cabinet above the B747's that are on their display stands, that lost space will now become with this modification free usable space, this way I can add an other 16 scale 1:200 diecast B747 models!

End of April the first of the new batch of 16 B747's will arrive and that is the following:

B747 01#16

Boeing 747-287B
Aerolineas Argentinas "Delivery Livery 1971"
LV-OPA
Scale 1:200
Inflight 200


This one I have reserved at Arcunia, this will be my first B747 of the second Chapter of this B747 Collection.
LV-OPA was also done in dedication of the 20+ Argentinean friends that helped me within my x-3dfx community at Facebook, so more like an honor to them, also a good way to start this second chapter right

Sam Chui maker of this cool video and Elliot Epstein the CEO of Gemini Jets from this video and that too gave me the inspiration to do a new thread on this subject, I always wanted to redo this properly so hoping with this topic done I have a new B747 future to look forward to.


Rock on, Fly Safe & Stay Healthy

    I'll admit I don't know much about model airplane collecting, but do wonder if something like a model of the Boeing 737 Max might be rare, or becoming rare, because of what's it's gone through. (and how plane models relate to the real thing and events regarding them)

    Hey thanks, yeah once Dad & I modded the cabinet with the 16 extra glass shelves, I can add 16 more for a total of 48 B747's instead of the 32 I have in there now.
    So that too will be a major challenge

    Yeah you can, B737 MAX 7, B737 MAX 8, B737 MAX 9 & B737 MAX 10 , should all be available by JX Wings & Gemini jets 200.Do a little ebay search and you'll fine quite a few out there.
    Once the B737 MAX issue gets solved they will return in to mass production again.

    hey thanks EVGA Team , yeah  B747's is all me man, it did sadden me seeing that KLM's B747-406M's left service on March 29, 2020, last Sunday, I am still hoping the letter from the old KLM CEO gives thema wake up call to at least keep 3 to 4 B747 Combi's since these aircraft have saved KLM numerous times.

    QANTAS also has decided to keep their  five remaining B747-438ER;s stored on ground and they plan on putting them back in to service after this crisis has passed.
    some of these B747-438ER's are younger than 15 years and that is too new to let go of their range is on par witha  B787 but the amount of freight they can take with them + passengers is double to that of a B787-938, as weight goes  so a B787 would have to do two flights as where the B747 can do it all in one and this is the one reason QANTAS is keeping their B747-438ER's so Iam hoping KLM does the same at some later point.

    Here a video of the last KLM B747-406M which is this one:

    Boeing 747-406M
    KLM Royal Dutch Airlines "Wave Livery"
    PH-BFT "City of Tokyo"
    Age: 22.9 Years

    This video was made by one of my Boeing 747 Community members and friends named Jorg De Bruijn:

    Great collection buddy😎👍

    Those who abuse power, are nothing but scumbags!
     The challenge of power is how to use it and not abuse it. When you abuse it, it reverses on you and it hurts you.The abuse of power that seems to create the most unhappiness is when a person uses personal power to get ahead without regards to the welfare of others, people are obsessed with it. You can take a nice person and turn them into a slob, into an insane being, craving power, destroying anything that stands in their way.
