PostSubject: Advice for newbies... which scale should you choose to start your collections...???   Wed Feb 24, 2010 5:50 pm

recently there were a lot of scales that was built regarding diecast models... but mostly the 1:400 and 1:200 scale are popular..... therefore, this thread was made as an advice to all aviators.... this is a guidline for you guys on buying your models...

let's say... you have collected scale 1:400 and you want to switch to 1:200...

or maybe you are collecting 1:200 and you want to have smaller scales...

here are some of the guidelines:

-1:400 Scale:
1) Lots of Variety, Many Brands offering Thousands Of Choices Of Airlines/Liveries and Airframes & Growing Very Fast.Including Propliners & Military.
2) More Than Half Of them Have An Excellent Degree of Accuracy, But You Need To Be selective.There Are Many Duds.
3) Space. You Can Have Several Hundred In A Small Space/Cabinet.
4) Price. A Fraction Of What It Costs For An Inflight.
5) good resale value.... and easy to sell....

-1:200 Scale:
1) Inflight & Herpas All Metal 200 Scale Are Simply Astounding. Sporting Details Not Possible In 400 Scale.
2) Not Much Variety. It May Take As Much as 10 Years To Build A Fleet.
3) Price. Be Prepared To sell your House if You Plan To Have Lots Of Inflights.
4) Space. Large Room or special auditorium Required.
5) Resale. They different level of Value more Than the 1:400 Scale, But May Take Some Time To Sell If You Need Quick Cash.

nb: other advice are welcomed by aviators .....

regards,
