As I said in the first part of the Aeroclassics GSE review they have made 17 different vehicle types and the aim of this and the next part of the review is to take a closer look at these individual vehicles. Some appear in almost every set that has been released whilst others are much rarer and have been used much more sparsely. In this post we'll look at some of the commoner elements. So let's get started.
When I installed the glass cabinets in place of the open shelves it was clear there was still room for some extra shelving. Even though that was only 3 months ago the ever expanding size of the collection has meant that already I have made some changes to the layout and at the same time taken advantage of a few good opportunities to improve the area as well. Here's an update.
Expansion and growth are the bywords for Chinese civil aviation and so it is only fitting that my Xin Long diorama has reached capacity and needs a new terminal! This post is the start of a series following planning and construction of Terminal 2, which will more than double capacity at my airport.
At the end of January 2006 my wife and I took a short trip out to Great Barrier Island. For those unfamiliar with the geography Great Barrier is New Zealand's sixth biggest island (285 sq kms) situated about 100km NE of Auckland. You can get there by car ferry but the best way is to fly into the main airfield at Claris. So that's what we did leaving as you'd expect from Auckland International.
