FirstLook

 

Miliscale from Israel is a new company that has released a range of cardboard tarmac products in various scales.

These are designed to be used as bases for model aircraft.

They are specifically based on a number of Israeli airfields, but the markings are fairly generic and will be suitable for other nations' military and civil settings from the 1970s until the present day too.

Each tarmac product is presented in adequately stiff cardboard. The finish of the printed surface is appropriately flat.

 

 

The full range is as follows:

  • Item No. Milis72-010-101: "Taxiing". Single 1/72 sheet. F-16 squadrons tarmac.

  • Item No. Milis72-010-102: "Runway 33". Single 1/72 sheet. Concrete runway of the 1970s.

  • Item No. Milis72-010-103: "Running In". Single 1/72 sheet. F-16 engine run in surface.

  • Item No. Milis72-111-101: "Taxiing Value Pack". Three 1/72 sheets.

  • Item No. Milis72-111-102: "Runway 33 Value Pack". Three 1/72 sheets.

  • Item No. Milis48-010-102: "Runway 33". Single 1/48 sheet. Concrete runway of the 1970s.

  • Item No. Milis48-010-103: "Running In". Single 1/48 sheet. F-16 engine run in surface.

  • Item No. Milis48-111-101: "Taxiing Value Pack". Three 1/48 sheets.

  • Item No. Milis48-111-102: "Runway 33 Value Pack". Three 1/48 sheets.

  • Item No. Milis48-123-103: "Assorted". Three 1/48 sheets.

The 1/48 scale "Runway 33" base is shown in a photo with my ESCI Macchi at the top of the page , while the photo below is the 1/72 scale "Taxiing" (with my Xtrakit Meteor F.8).

 

 

Miliscale's tarmac bases are a simple and versatile way to display your modern Israeli or other modern aircraft models.

Thanks to Noy Pines for the sample.
