Several months ago I started out on building a new joint use facility located somewhere in the US. What I ended up with was an Air Base in Germany. After some encouragement from our friends over at Evie Airbase the project is moving along nicely.
Flugplatz Eifel is a tactical airbase in the Rhineland-Palatinate The model is in 1/400 scale and is based on the former American Bases Bitburg and Hahn as well as the current Spangdalhem.
The base will house an American Fighter squadron have several spots for cargo aircraft as well as a small terminal for troop movement on chartered aircraft. as well as areas for NATO transit alert aircraft on the NATO side the RAF, Luftwaffe and Royal Canadian air-force have already expressed interest.
The base is currently about 80 percent complete great care was taken to providing the proper GSE.
The Zulu facility has 2 bays and 2 fully armed F-15s on alert
Eifel's main ATC tower fire house and admin building with a visiting RAF harrier on the transit ramp
and finely a view of the Eifel cargo ramp. hope to have some better pictures soon when I get all the GSE painted and the reminder of the base built
