Anyone know of a credible and good quality website were I can purchase model aircraft?
Have you looked at http://www.airplaneshop.com/ ?
Yeah I found a few others but some dont have phone numbers and I get weary about that.
I used airlinemuseum.com and magellan models. I just dont want yo spend a fortune. Some charge a ton more for the same model and was wondering why such a price difference for the same model.

You could always save a picture of a model airplane and make it your desktop wallpaper. It would still be a desktop model airplane and not cost a dime.
I've used Flying Mule before and of course Amazon.
Expensive but best models I've ever seen. I think they do civil air too
It's a long shot, but depending on what city you're in, they sometimes have airline collectible sales events. They had one last year in MSP at a hotel near the airport and there were a few tables full of model airplanes and other historic aviation memorabilia.
Depends on what type of model. If you're looking for an executive 1:100 wood model then try airwaysgifts.com
If you want 1:200 / 1:400 scale diecast models then use jetwaymodels.com
Price differences come from model scale, rarity of aircraft molds or the airline and availability (sometimes they only make a certain amount), things like that. I’ve been converting what models I have to 1:200 scale and diecast, so they’re a little more spendy. I generally stick to Gemini Jets for those (just picked up an Atlas Air 747-8 recently). Military wise Hogan is good, and there’s a few others. Just all depends on what you’re looking for.
