So, here we have the latest additons to the growing 3rd world republic that is my garage. Must think of a witty pun-tastic name for it...
First is the airport. I haven't tried to go for the full runway, etc, but have concentrated on having anough stuff to make for interesting scenarios. We have a car-park, terminal building, control tower, some hard-standing for the local airline's (Plummit Airways) DC-3 and some huts to act as crew messes or whatever.
Most of the buildings are scratch-built from 5mm foamcore, the roof vents are from drinks bottles, the fencing is car repair mesh and the huts are from the Timecast 15mm Vietnam range. The airport buildings have windows made from a flyswatter, allowing for some "interesting" architecture.
To liven up the crash site I added a motorbike adapted from a WW2 Peter Pig german one, minus the sidecar:
Fortunately Huey #2 is still airborne for now:
Very lastly, here are the buildings I received in the Kerr & King boxed set. These are lovely and include the walled garden areas. Only think that needs some work are the roofs, which are somewhat too snug a fit. But 30 seconds witha file sorts this out. The pack also comes with some optional domed roof pieces and the second-stored on the big house is removable eith the option of a single-storey and a larger roof piece.
