Work continues on Baghdad Int’l Airport
The northwest corner of Baghdad International Airport in 1/285th scale. Work in progress. Tonight I just started the application of the desert sand texture, this is a process that takes several applications before it’s done, this is just the first base layer.
This last photo shows the area being modeled. The satellite image on the left shows the area that I’m modeling. I’ve taken a little bit of artistic license especially in ground scale, I tried to keep the widths of all runways and taxiways real close to scale but the distances between things is seriously reduced.
New Aircraft Models
I just picked up a few new models from Armaments In Miniature. I got an IL-76, a C-130 and a pair of C-17s. These planes will be very handy when I get my airport boards done.
I have not had much time to work on these planes but I can tell already that they are fine models. I’m very happy with their quality and the customer service from the owner Dave was great. In my own business I try to make customer service my #1 priority and I really appreciate it when I deal with a company that does the same.
Here it is assembled. I added some landing gear since the plane will be sitting in my airport.
