AT-6 Texan Trainer, South African Air Force (SAAF) "7072"
Air Power Series. World Texan Series. This is my second "World Texan Series" (which sounds like both a very limited and at the same time, very broad-based baseball league). The model is great, and looks great, but it didn't photograph as well as I thought it would; or, perhaps, it is the new "matting" used as the base.

The base is cut out of a sheet of GeminiAces recently released 1/400 - 1/200 scale airport extension. I was hoping the new extension would solve a lot of the background problems experienced with other bases, which are usually too orange, or grey, or green, or are too bright, or dull, or fake-looking (such as cloth or tile). I'll give the new base a few more tries, but it may not be dark enough. The best base I've every had is the eztoys Airport Mat Set, but I can't get a large enough continuous section to underlay the larger scales, such as 1/72 or 1/48.

Apologies for the poor pictures, but, then, I wouldn't keep at this if it wasn't for the chance to experiment (and, of course, to buy cameras, lenses, tripods, and (lest we forget) models).
