My model pics on Flickr

Post by Moin »

As photography has become a new obsession with me, I decided it would be nice to photograph some of the 1:400 and 1:200 models in my collection. This is not my entire collection as I'm only taking pics of those models which I have acquired in the last 2 years and pics of new models which I have bought will also be added as I receive them:

I personally can't stand these model threads, they're just so boring and out of spirit, but I must say that your collection speaks out for it self. Don't know what 1:400 & 1:200 stand for but models looking great.
The orbital speed of the Earth around the Sun averages about 30 km/s or 18 mps (108,000 km/h or 67000 mph).
Which means we're travelling 97 times the speed of sound. And yet we can't feel the motion,

The definition of 1:200 and 1:400 is fairly simple. 1:200 means that 200 models all placed one behind the other will cover the actual length of the real a/c. Same as with 1:400. For example, you take 400 B747 models in 1:400 scale and line them up one after the other and that would be the actual length of a real B747.

More new pics have been added.

I have enjoyed alot while watching the pics of the models, unfortunately not able to view the entire album as it was of 135 pics and my duty time got off :roll:

What i noted that Moin has bought A380s as well, not 1 or 2 but 3 or more which i noted...

Moin, all the one i have seen are jets, dont you collect turboprops in scale 1:400 for your project or even 1:200? I think without those, the airport project will not be complete.... :?:

I think your break during duty time was extremely short lol. I do have several 1:200 models as well and there are pics of a few of them on Flickr as well. Check the album again at your leasure.

I'm not really THAT into propjets. I do have a 1:400 Iberia Super Connie, Air Tanzania F-27 and Olympic DC-6 and plan on taking pics of all my retro models i.e. 707, 720, 727, DC-8, Caravelle, VC-10, Trident etc all in one or two sessions as there are alot of models to photograph. New pics will be added periodically, so keep checking back.

[-X i viewed all those during duty time; as i get some free time in between....therefore, i have already bookmark the link and will chill 8) my eyes continuously....

And regarding your project, i know that you are not much. Therefore, just my opinion to place the turboprops as well....
