Wooden Airstrip Base

Kit # 72022 Preview by Rob Haelterman


Clearly meant for aircraft modelers, this simple, one-piece base plate could have its uses for AFV modelers.

The plate represents a section of an airfield, covered with wooden planks, bordered with earth.

Casting quality is good, but a small amount of warping was present (which was solved after heating and straightening), while the edges are a bit rough. I sanded mine smooth and added ornamental wooden strips. Some ground cover was added to the earth section in the corner.
