Above is how we left the main terminal at the end of the last post. One thing it obviously needs is a back so that was the next thing to be added. Note I have also begun to add airbridges - though most of these are stolen from my other diorama, Dowse National. I'll have to see about purchasing some more and perhaps customising them a bit too:
The front of the terminal was also not finished. The newly painted darker tarmac needed some paint pen attention and the terminal needed a blast fence in front of it. Also I decided to take a leaf from my old Imogenia and label the terminal as 'Terminal 1':
It's a little hard to see but the blast fence isn't attached to the terminal but to the piece of added balsa in front of it.
Even so there is plenty of work still to be done before Xin Long is accepting passengers. For starters there is:
There may be a bit of a pause now whilst I work out how to do these things but I am very happy with how the diorama has come along. Hopefully you think it looks good to.
