A few years back I had one of those ideas, you know the kind - bordering on delusional and totally outside the scope of one's skill, patience and ability. A diorama of a 1/32 Marine Corps Air Station hangar with a legacy Hornet letting it all hang out whilst personnel went to work on her. Let's start with some scratch building: Anyone for a cold drink? Some of the printed items which had to be non-uk (signs and safety labels etc). The whiteboard(s) had the correct date for the diorama, Feb 23 - 2005 which matched up with the VFA-97 decals when it was stationed at MCAS Iwakuni. I even researched what movies were out at this time and created posters for the base cinema. The boxes above were printed on to paper and made these: Paint Shop Pro was used to design and scale the bits and bobs, all the packing, postage, shipping, handling and manufacturer graphics were sourced from the web and scaled down. The pallets were made from actual wood which was aged and detailed. The MCCS notice board: Most hangars have a foam fire retardant system in place which protects everything inside. It's basically a tank or tanks which link in with a fire alarm system and will produce masses of foam to basically cover the entire hangar. Enough of this non-aircraft skulduggery I hear you cry, where's the thing with the wings?
