Air Tahiti Nui introduced its first Dreamliners back in October 2018 and has now replaced all of its previous Airbus A340s with a quartet of 787-9s. With the delivery of NG Models recent release I am pleased to say that Air Tahiti Nui has added the Chinese airport of Xin Long to its route network and the inaugural flight was by F-OVAA. Here are some photos from her first arrival.
It has been over three months since I last reported progress on my latest model diorama and although I haven't given it vast amounts of attention progress has definitely been made. In fact it is pretty much half complete now so let's take a look at the changes.
Since I moved house in 2016, despite having a lot more space for the hangar, my first 1:400 scale model airport had to be taken to pieces. This has left a gap in my dioramas that I'm keen to refill. Changes to my layouts last year have given me the opportunity re-establish a small layout in the same chronological era and so Dowse National is reborn. This post represents the first part in recreating a snapshot of the 60s.
I'm Richard Stretton: a fan of 1/400 scale model aircraft and airports. This blog reports work on my model airport dioramas and discussion of the model manufacturers output.
