    I have been collecting die cast helicopters in the 1:48 scale and recently considered myself done with it because there aren't that many out there.

    i want a 1:48 size Mi-24D Hind and a KA-50, btw. and would kill for the obscure and experimental helos like this one:

    ^AH-56 Cheyenne

    i am putting off getting into airplanes and jets until after the August Hasbro bombardment.

    just wondering if anyone else collects die cast aircraft and what size/kinds you prefer?
    or if you have a favorite in your collection you'd wanna share.

    I have a 1/48 scale F-14 of VF-2, VF-111 and 1/32 scale one of VF-2. I'd collect more but they are damn expensive for the good ones.

    That's actually a Sikorsky S-67 Blackhawk, not an AH-56 Cheyenne...

    this is the AH-56 Cheyenne *which sits in front of the Army Aviation Museum at Fort Rucker near my house):

    this, is a S-67:

    the difference between the Blackhawk and the Cheyenne is the push prop at the rear of the Cheyenne.

    I do wish we had the Blackhawk here, too.

    in any sense, these are the type of die cast aircraft i would like to collect.

    I love all the litte planes , jets & helicoptors n sht in the toy aisles, just hate it when they spiff out on the landing gears and stick big wheelnubs on the bellies that you can't fold in.
    can't dogfight with that crap
