I first noticed photos on Facebook with Airline Manufacture products in them a few years back and there has been a steady stream on eBay since then. It has taken me a while to buy much of their product line however as I am happy enough making my own airport layouts and a lot of their other bits are more to do with maintenance and hangar spaces.
That has changed recently and now I own a few of their lights, blast fences, airport taxiway signs and this maintenance rig. I reviewed the lights a while back in a more general blogpost about airport lighting - see 1:400 Airport Accessories - Lighting Poles
The smaller maintenance set (there is a larger more comprehensive one) comes in a cardboard box with foam insert. It appears you can buy a better quality insert for the model to sit on (as above) but mine came with just a card cutout of the tarmac, which is fine.
The set comes with the above 8 components. Two are driveable airstairs, two are tall paint platforms, two are overwing platforms and two are nose/tail platforms. They are finished quite nicely in yellow with black wheels painted on. The detail is pretty decent considering they are 3D printed.
I was pretty happy with the set I received. I don't really have a pressing need for the set I admit but it looks pretty good nonetheless. They fit most types ok even an A380:
Below are some shots of my set with a Panda Models A330-300. The card base that comes with it is as you see a bit small, but it's an add-on really:
Here's the same set with a JC Wings 787 on my own ground foil:
Lastly the set can still work with smaller aircraft with some care. Here it is with an HYJLwings A321:
Overall I'm very happy with this set, which adds a lot of interest to any diorama or collection. Mine is sitting inside my house colours case attending to an A350 as I write this.
