My Kit Collection

Throughout the years, I have collected a number of vintage and recent RC kits, Control Line kits and Rubber Power kits. These are mostly kits of which I could only dream when I was young and when I didn't have the money to acquire them...

The great names of aeromodelling were Svenson, Goldberg, Sig, Top Flite and Graupner along with WIK, Pica and many others.

The kits in my possession and shown below are all unassembled unless mentioned otherwise. They are normally not for sale, but as I receive so many requests, I have added a price to the kits I'm willing to sell in the end. The kits which are marked "reserved" are not for sale. Indicated prices are NOT negotiable, so don't waste my time by asking for a better price. Shipping costs for these kits are the same as Postage and handling rates "for larger orders (except jet kits)". Direct link to these shipping costs here.

The page is kept up to date but please contact me first to confirm availablity. The latest additions (2021) are the PT-60, Snoopey, A4D-1 Skyhawk, Stampe SV4, Easy Sport 40 and Amazone.

Furthermore, I have a nice collection vintage RC engines, an extensive collection of old transmitters and finally, a large collection of plastic kits for static display.

If you own a vintage kit you'd like to sell, I may be interested. I'm most interested in Svenson RC kits.

Plastic modelling
   

From time to time, I build a static display model from plastic or resin kits. My preferred scale is 1/72 for military aircraft and 1/144 for airliners. Unfortunately, like so many other modellers, I tend to buy more kits than I can build, so now I have a collection of 750+ kits... I'm a member of the scalemates community, so you can find me there.

Meanwhile, I let you enjoy some of the models in my display cabinet with the photographs shown below.

   

1/72 models of USAF military aircraft

1/144 models of SABENA airliners

   

1/72 models of US NAVY and Russian military aircraft (together with a scale model of my own design, the Interceptor...)
