MY ISRAELI FLEET (1:400 SCALE)
Updated: April 2023
Israel is not a focus area for my collection, but since I collect a wide range of global airlines from 1945-2000 it is certainly present. The country hasn't had a large number of historic airlines anyway, but 3 feature in my collection. EL AL is obviously predominant with single additions from Arkia and MAOF. I have often struggled with where to place Israel in my collection, since it has historically been shunned by its neighbours, however presently it sits above the Middle East shelf at the end of the North African shelf next to Egyptair, which I think approximates its geographic location nicely.
Israel has been well covered in 400 scale with representatives from Arkia, Israir, MAOF Airlines, Sun d'Or and of course EL AL. Of the 116 models as of April 2023 the vast majority represent the flag carrier, but due to Aeroclassics Arkia is well covered too. There are still a couple of historic models I'd like to pickup but for now I have just the 9 Israeli models.
