About this scale
1/400 scale die cast airliner models are the most popular commercial airplane model scale. The combination of a huge selection, great detail, and reasonable pricing makes this a perfect sale for collectors. At www.AirlineMuseum.com we have been a top selling store for 1:400 diecast airliner and military aircraft since 1999. GeminiJets had just started the year before with the this whole new scale, just a bit larger then the popular 1:500 scale Herpa Wings Models this little bit extra allowed for increased detail especially for the landing gear. GeminiJets also are fully metal models with the wings and tail diecast as well as the fuselage. Herpa Model, followed by Dragon Wings did a metal fuselage, but plastic wings and tail fins. GeminiJets raised the bar in other ways as well. Their colors and manufacturer blueprint designed molds are extremely accurate to their full size counterparts.
