As an AvGeek, I collect just about anything related to commercial aviation. I have just recently moved house, while doing so I made the decision to share with you some of my aviation collection.
Video of My Collection
I collect airplane models that I flew on as a passenger. Most of my models are GeminiJets, in both 1:200 and 1:400 scale. I decorate the showcase with models and include some of the flight certificates in the background.
My favourite models are those of the B747 with a special paint scheme, such as the Singapore Airlines Tropical Megatop, ANA Marine Jumbo and SAA Ndizani.
The model below is one of the most interesting ones that I have come across, it is half B747-8 and half An-124 from the Volga Dnepr Group. One wing is low and the other is high. It actually shows that both planes are similar in size.
Airline Amenity Kit and Sleepwear
I have hundreds of airline amenity kits from traveling and about 20 sets of sleepwear. I keep most of them are kept in storage, however I do keep a few of the more unique ones on display. The Etihad Residence amenity kit came with my personal initials on it, while the pink Lalique is a female version from the Singapore Airlines A380 First Class Suite.
Dining and Tableware
I adore tableware with airline logos, but not the generic ones. From time to time, I have asked the airlines if I can keep a coffee cup or saucer.
I also collect in-flight menus from the flights I have been on. Some of them are rare or one of a kind; such as the inaugural A350-1000 flight on Qatar Airways, the last breakfast menu on EL AL B747-400 and the flight menu from Hello Kitty flights on EVA Air.
In addition, I collect just about anything else that is personalized; such as the Etihad Residence menu, a welcome letter from the A380 and much much more.
My Trophy Case
This case has more important personalized gift that are one of a kind; including my YouTube 100k and 1 million subscriber awards, coins, flight certificates and other miscellaneous gifts.
I also keep most of my event badges, they serve as mementos of the special events I have attended.
I have a fair amount of lanyards, playing cards, coffee mugs, toys, stickers and baseball caps.
On my book shelve, I have a varied collection of aviation books and this includes my latest book - Air747.
