Lovely collection and nicely photographed. Those Becker sets look really modern; they seem out of place compared to all the others.

Ahato has a lot more webpages with photo's of his collection of electronics, he also collects hi-fi, domestic radio's etc

http://www.gem.hi-ho.ne.jp/no-koshobu/index.htm

If you scroll down to near the bottom of the page, you'll find what he's added to his collection each year since 2005 up to 2018, there are some really rare R/C sets from around the world inbetween his hi-fi's. If you use Chrome browser you can translate each page into English and the translation is adequate to understand. I have corresponded with him by email as he has an OS Juniortrol, that I also have and I wanted a set of the instructions (on his 2016 page). He flew R/C as a kid but isn't an active flyer at the moment, but intends to start again in the future. He uses shipping agents in the USA, UK, Germany and Australia to help him find R/C sets and it seems that money is no object. But even he thinks prices are getting too expensive to add too many more.

The only collection on the web that I know of that is probably better is the RC Hall of Fame
