Report by Henry Tenby

As always, I attended this year’s airline collectibles show at Schwanheim in early November, and it never fails to impress. As the photos below demonstrate, there was a again a very impressive selection of models on offer for sale for discerning model collectors, at all price points from entry level at the sub 100 Euros range, all the way up to very rare models in the 1,000-1,500 Euros range.

Bothers Patrick and Ed an Rooijen from the Netherlands single handedly represented 95% of the models on offer at the show, as they both brought a huge selection of very nice models. Without their presence the show would have been underwhelming. Which is unfortunate, as it would be nice if had a stronger presence of model collectors and sellers from within Germany, Belgium and France, all of which close by countries boast impressive populations of hard-code model collectors.

Some might consider the FRA Schawnheim show to now be a practice/teaser show for the global grand-dady of airline collectibles shows which now takes place at Amsterdam every February. The Amsterdam show has come out of nowhere and built itself up to the main event for aircraft display model collectors on the world stage. CLICK here for more info n the Amsterdam show, and savour the photos from the Frankfurt show. Many of the models with remained unsold at Frankfurt will surely present themselves at Amsterdam for a second chance for interested buyers.
