For many Heathrow has been a nightmare of old cramped terminals, long immigration lines, traffic jams and delays. I expect people think that with the new terminals it's much better. I disagree, nowadays its a shopping mall and the diversity of airlines has shrunk compared to AMS and FRA. Anyway back when I was a kid it was a place of wonder and I'm tempted to recreate a part of that. For that I'll need a fleet though, so what's available?
One of the great things about Adrian Balch's environment dioramas is that they can be used across continents and decades because of their largely natural look and feel. In this part his fabulous winter wonderland diorama takes the part of Finland, Switzerland and Austria. Get your ear muffs out and dive in to see operations in the snow!
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.
