You can't, maybe you can find someone who does really good customs, but they probably will make you pay a premium, honestly herpa should make more, or GJ should make some in 1:200......like a terminal !

Unfortunately you are pretty much looking at customs here, tho you could find a millitary jet fuel truck in 1:200 if you don't mind scale too much, N scale buses are everywhere.

And I think this thread belongs in Airport Creations, TBH.

If you are not adverse to doing final painting, I have a source of 1:200 airport buses that would fit a 'recent' set up. They are in the UK. I can post a link and an image if I can find my original post that has it all. Let me know if you're into that.

Sorry . . . no help on the refueller.

You can find a lot of vehicles in 1/150 for airports
I use them and they seem to look perfect.
Try a google search for them

No worries, and yes, see below.

That was one of them, but they do have to be finished (painted) by the collector -- BUT -- they are the correct scale. (My first choice)

Now, if you are not into doing the paint, etc, AND you don't mind the scale being a wee-bit large (1:160) check out this thread:

http://www.diecastaircraftforum.com/1-200-scale-model-aircraft/105971-corsair-b747sp-if200-socatec-pics.html


You'll find a number of images in Rui's shots of these modern buses and the link (HERE) where you can scope out, and buy (€25 min) their products. I hope that helps.

On a side note, what does an average fuel truck looks like? Is a generic version out there somewhere or does every airport sport their own design (based on e.g. Dodge, Mercedes, Iveco etc.), built by their local fuel truck garage?
How do they fuel big jets? Surely not by an army of small tanker trucks?
Can anyone enlighten me?

Cheers
Chris
