  1. These look nice, but I’d like to see backdrops suitable for 1/72 and 1/144 airliners and civilian aircraft.

  2. I am definately interested in the Axis Airfield and Cold War Revetment. I am concerned about the perspective of the model in relation to the background. The Tempest/Typhoon up close with the parking ramp & hangars in the background is fine. If you put the Cold War Revetment as a back drop for a Viet Nam era plane, it will look like the plane is parked in front of the revetment and not IN it.


  3. These look nice backgrounds, but having a revetment for a model would sure make it look like the real thing. For I have been looking for model kit airfield revetment US AIR FORCE SEA time period 1/48 scale for years. I see in a magazine that an manufacture MDC has one at 1/48 scale resin cast – kit # CV48049 sure like to find source. Were I can purchase them in the. United States. Airfield Revetment walls in resin cast kit would make a great Dioramas. I spent two tour in SEA as crew chief on F-105D/F and F-4D. I got models with my tail numbers, but boy would love to see them in proper revetments.
