Airport Diorama – Progress report
Once upon a time, in an age before cell phones, there existed a certain kind of airport with certain kinds of airplanes . . .
I gave Terry the kits from my stores as replacements. He will undoubtedly do them far better justice than I might have ever hoped for. Note the springs on the Staggerwing’s landing gear
This is one of those “Gee, wish I could do that” moments.
The C-47 project is under way. I did not like the aluminum finish, so I scrunged the model and am going to attempt a repaint.
The LaSalle hearse and coffins come from my story Islands in Between where I had a body on board during a flight.
During the photo shoot, one of the mechanics drank a bottle of Tenax 2024T malt liquor and fell over dead drunk.
The Ruger crane was a kit in itself.
The fence was a project that I might do a piece on separately.
The Beech Staggerwing is a stunning piece of work, winning a “Best Red Airplane” award at a show.
Terry’s Stinson Reliant, is another masterpiece of workmanship.
I estimate about 50% completion of the Airport Diorama project. Here are more photos of present results.
