Default Airport scenes

Following on from Eirikur Raudi’s excellent thread “Playing with backdrops” I have created some airport backdrops using some of the models in my collection, but can you identify them.
First an A318(flight BA001) at its destination.

Please feel free to add any of your own creations.

Outward bound to JFK it stops at Shannon to refuel, but it’s a non stop return.

Nice work - like your BA A318 - Herpa release, right? The A318 is an airframe that was underutilized with but 80 produced, and BA's LCY-JFK route is unique. An A318NEO would have been an interesting addition. And the Concorde night shot is great - tricky lighting to make a night backdrop work. Keep up the good work, Doug

This time a trip well south of the border, and an airport with a new low cost airline.

Santiago de Chile, Santiago Airport.

The background remindes me on the mountains at Almaty.

Hi. Very nice model plane and composition. By the way, what´s the scale of that model? It lloks great. I assume that is it custom made, isn't it? Did you do it?
Anyway, great job! Cheers!

It is a 1/200 scale custom. This link will take you to the thread I started in the Custom Model section.
