Not content with his desert backdrop Adrian Balch took on an even more difficult subject in a model diorama - snow! The result is a great display space for airliners from a range of frosty locations like Austria, Canada, Finland, Siberia and South Korea. Time to break out the de-icing equipment as we head into Adrian's winter wonderland.
This is part 3 of looking at Adrian's diorama work. For the first two parts see:
In the photo below you can get a feeling for how the entire diorama fits together. Adrian has managed to fit a lot of detail into a small area.
Canada gets plenty of snow and in the below series we travel to the 1950s with TCA DC-3s and C-4 North Stars then onto the 1960s with an EPA Herald, TCA Vanguard and Viscount and Canadian Pacific Britannias:
A different kind of cold can be found in South Korea where in this early 1980s shot there are a mix of KAL 707, 747, A300 and an ANA 727-200:
Lastly for this part we move to snowy polar Russia during the early 1990s with a TAROM TU-154 and an Aeroflot IL-62M. In the next part we'll stay with the snow but head back to Europe proper.
