Hello from a Newbie!
Hi & Hello to all the BHPians! Specially the ones who are crazy about Scale Model Vehicles.
Inspired by great collectors like Dippy, Cyrus43, Salil, Amit V8, Beemer, Beeman, Islero and the rest of all great guys, I am posting the pictures of my newest & the first acquisitions.
Starting with my favourites:-
1) AUTOart 1:18 Mitsubishi Pajero 1998 LWB RHD
2) Maisto 1:18 Mercedes-Benz CLS Class
3) Maisto 1:24 Volkwagen Beetle Old
Hope you all will like it.
I also have three 1:18 bikes from Maisto & some other toys from my childhood, plus something more.... will post them soon too...

Me and few friends of mine are planning to setup a scale city - mostly of scale 1:18..as most auto diecast are available in that. Now, the issue is finding compatible aircraft scale and railroad scale models. It being a city scale model, we are planning to showcase railroad, port and airport setup. Now setting up an airforce setup is not an issue, as quite a few scale models are availale in 1:18 scale, but thats not the case with commercial aircrafts.
So let me cut all that, and get to point. Are there any suggestion that you can pass on to me Beeman for compatible scales. I guess the max scale thats been regularly noticed for commercial crafts is 1:200.. right??? Any suggestions would be of great help.

I havent bought anything major in the last three months or so. And to be very honest, there are a very few cars that really exite me as of now. I have this lingering and nagging voice in the back of my head begging me to venture into Aeronautical kits and Aeromodelling. I have a friend who goes to the turf club to fly his model airsrafts every sunday and every time i meet him he asks me when i am going to get one of my own? But, in a recent trip to gift centre, i noticed a F-14 Hornet kit lying smugly in a corner and now i really want that!!
Watch this space..I may just get lucky!!

For airport dioramas, I would suggest relatively small period airliners like the DC-3 to showcase vintage 1:18 scale (post 1935), & smaller aircraft from Lear or Cessna for more contemporary 1:18 cars.
Besides, 1:18 isn't a common scale for kit aircraft - the common scales are 1:32, 1:48, 1:72, & 1:144. If you prefer die-cast, the common airliner scales are (as you'd mentioned) 1:200, 1:250, 1:350, & 1:400.
If you're planning an airport scene, replicating in scale a small private airport would be more suitable (as against a large commercial terminal) for the purposes of showcasing scaled cars. Even the DC-3 in 1:18 scale (if you can get it) will be quite large (L - 3' 6", H -11", W - 5' 3"), detailed, & expensive ! A better bet would be the single-engined aircraft from Cessna, Beech, or Mooney.
