I have posted some pictures of my Air New Zealand fleet in 1:400 scale in the 787-9 thread. I said I would start a dedicated thread here for anyone to show or talk about collecting.
As I'm sure most of you are aware, it is addictive.
Although there are two stores in NZ that I know of who specialize in selling these models, and I do like to support New Zealand business where I can, I typically get my models from the USA and Australia, this is fr several reason, mainly because these bigger overseas stores have in stock the aircraft I want and also price, currently, the same models are between NZ$15 and NZ$20 cheaper (Including conversion and shipping) to buy from either Waffle Collectibles based in the USA and Australian Aviation Center based in Aussie.
Good thread Jason although 1:400 is not my scene... too small for my dodgy eyesight so I only collect 1:200 airliners
Will add some piccies in the near future, most of my collection is in a storage container in Chch but I have a few here in Perth.

I know what you mean, I have serious space issues, so 1:400 is good for that, I saw some 1:200 and they are nice, very nice, I would have liked very much to have walked out with the 1:200 A380 and the nice RAAF C-17 also in 1:200.
