    These photos are super stunning!! I particularly like the overview shot where you can see the terminal crowded with (Herpa?) people.

    Although I am quite experienced with 1/600 custom models I don't dare to try my luck with a 1/400 model. Yours looks so good.
    Most wanted in 1/400: Boeing 737-200 Condor (grey), Boeing 737-300 Condor (grey), Boeing 737-300 Euroberlin, Boeing 767-300ER LTU süd, Douglas DC-9-32 Aero Lloyd (rainbow), Caravelle 10R Aero Loyd (rainbow)

    Thanks Martin. Yes, they are Herpa people.

    In 1973 TIA operated a DC-8-63 on freight charters through Perth. As I can't buy a Srs 63 in 1/400 scale the GJ Srs 61 is "standing in" for the -63.

    British Caledonian also operated ad-hoc migrant charters from the UK to Perth in the early 1970s.

    South African of course was a "regular" on scheduled services between Jo'burg and Sydney.

    I need to invest in some mega-wattage floodlights. Can't get enough light through the window and onto the diorama now the summer sun has moved higher in the sky!

    What a difference lighting makes!

    I am in the process of moving my hobby room upstairs to a much bigger room being vacated by my son. In so doing I placed my airport diorama beside a different window temporarily. When I pulled the blind up I noticed how the afternoon sun cast long shadows across the diorama and gave the model a different "feel".

    This could be a late afternoon turnaround of a BA service to London. In the background an Ansett 722 is serviced for a return to the east coast and a US Navy P-3C Orion is overnighting on one of its regular visits to Perth.

    Gavin,

    It's time for you to publish this! These works of art, and advice, are positively
    the best!-The Perth Airport and Railroad Authority'.....I'd buy a copy or two.!

    The stuff you have mentioned in this thread, and many others, are very
    inspiring. Thanks!

    Gavin, which South African 707 model is that as it is in a later livery than the Aeroclassics model and is a -300 series with silver (not blue) engines?
    Adrian

    The missing B.707s still needed to be done: Uganda Airlines, MEA -Q-Jet, PIA -final, TMA of Lebanon (with correct Lemon colour tail)

    DC-8s still needed to be done: UAT, Iberia ('80s scheme), Air Ceylon, Air Spain, Seaboard World (-63)

    Caravelles still needed to be made: Luxair, Air Algerie, Sabena (final 'S' logo scheme}, SAS 'SCANDINAVIAN' late '60s scheme; Libyan Arab Airlines

    You are quite right Adrian! It's a custom I did myself as the blue engined -344 series 707s never came to Perth (lack of range I believe). Refer posts 174 and 179 above.

    Ok Gavin,

    I gotta ask cause you're driving me crazy.

    I saw the post showing your lighting set up but I can't take pics with your quality.
    I have a baby A400 Canon P&S and outside etc. takes really good pics. Come inside and the Gremlins take over.

    It would be easier for me to grow feathers and fly.
    What is the secret pls.

    My quality?

    I have always thought mine were pretty ordinary compared to those of Todd and Faheem and others whose photos are always crystal clear and sharp.

    I just use a Fuji FinePix 2800 point and shoot (2 megapixel).

    The best shots are obviously with natural light - then it doesn't matter what camera you're using, the light works wonders!

    I struggle with the light from my Ikea floods. I always have to adjust the brightness and contrast in Photoshop before posting.

    Think I might visit a camera shop and see if I can pick up some real photographic floodlights.

    Gavin
