1/500 Diorama Display

I must point out this is not strictly based on Malta International Airport. Although I have taken huge inspiration from the main apron layout to accommodate both widebody and narrowbody aircraft types.

This thread will also guide you through my 1/500 collection. I still have the many models I acquired in the deep depths of this scale from before and have recently added to this seemingly growing collection with more on the way soon.

I've created a system based on when each model was active based in real life, and chosen the middle year when the aircraft were active. For example:

2000-2004 = 2002 as the middle year that airframe was active.

After revising my sources and information this should depict accurately the active years of aircraft based on liveries, and additions to airframes like winglets. I will however apologies in advance if I have overlooked something.

Starting in 1998 - Britannia Airways B757-200 G-BYAR

Re: 1/500 Maltese Inspired Diorama

Great to see your 1:500 venture featuring a lot of iconic, classic British models! The Britannia livery is absolutely gorgeous on the 767!

Re: 1/500 Maltese Inspired Diorama

I have always been a big fan of your photography, and I think the systematic approach that you have decided to take in displaying your models is fantastic. I am looking forward to this!

Lighting in this room is quite difficult so I have been trying to find the right balance for photo's so you may notice variations.

Re: 1/500 Maltese Inspired Diorama

What a pity for the Herpa old generation models, JMC and other would have been wonderful in NG.
Thanks for sharing Adam.

Re: 1/500 Maltese Inspired Diorama

The SAS A340-300 looks great! Was it there for maintenance, or did they not do that at this time in MLA?

Thank you both for your appreciation. I believe the JMC A320 is my only 1/500 model with the stocky gears. One of my very early scale model purchases on eBay.

This is not specifically based on Malta. The general layout is, but in terms of traffic, it's just to feature my growing collection in the best way given the space I have. Heck, I don't even have any Air Malta models yet
