Skymax models surprised us in a very positive way when announced the production of a rather rare and historical model presenting a Hellenic Air Force F-84G Thunderjet as used to fly with 337 Squadron "Fantasma" (Ghost). In October 1952 the 337 FB Sqn deployed from the Elefsis Air Base to the Larissa AB with F-84G aircraft in its inventory. What makes this model and especially 337 Squadron historical is the fact that at the beginning of the year 1953, the first acrobatic flight of the HAF was established and joined the 337 Fighter Bomber Squadron , a fact that projected the squadron in the inland as well as abroad. The establishment-training of the Acro Team had been accomplished.
Herpa is the market and innovation leader in specially detailed and highvalue car, truck, and airplane miniatures. We are proud the announce that Herpa has designed and manufactured a Hellenic Air Force Mirage-2000-5 model in scale 1:200. The model presents a Hellenic AF 331 Squadron "Theseus" Dassault Mirage 2000-5 EG. Herpa has also produced other models of great quality, some of them in an extremely Christmas spirit and for that reason you should check out the brand new catalog for year 2011.
The Psychology of Collecting By Mark B. McKinley, Ed.D Everybody is a Collector Everybody collects something! Whether it be photographs of a person’s vacation, ticket stubs from ballgames, souvenirs of trips, pictures of one’s children, athletes’ trophies, kid’s report cards, and those who collect “junk” (pack-rats) and dispose of it in garage sales.

We all have admired Hellenic Air Force specially painted aircrafts either in or outside greek skies. But who are behind those projects? Who is the "mind"? Who the "hand"? Warrant Officer George Athanasiadis is for sure the man that can tell us a lot about those aircrafts and we thank him for his kindness to give us a mini interview. We also thank Hellenic Air Force General Staff, Public Relations office and especially Press Spokesman Maj. Konstantinos Grapsas for the precious help.
The known aviation artist Kostas Kavvathias made us proud once more. He decorated with his own paintings the cover of the boxes for three model kits of Hobby Boss and Trumpeter.
