Default Convair Jets at the Gate

It's been a little while since I posted any photos of my airport diorama but just recently I got a pair of Cathay Pacific CV-880s (see http://www.diecastaircraftforum.com/...c-smokers.html) and they have given me the chance to finally pair up the Cathay Pacific GSE I have and create a few quick shots of the 880s in service at some far-eastern airport of the 60s.

First an overview of a good chunk of the ramp - note the China Airlines L-1049 and Garuda CV-990 also:

Some closeups of the 880s:

I love the 880/990, they looked so futuristic. I always see the typical Convair style in the shape, in a sense the "civil version" of the F-102 Delta Dagger :-)

Good stuff Richard. Would like to see more of your retro Cathay Pacific models in this diorama?

That's it for CX I'm afraid at the moment. They seem to be very expensive models like SQ.
