Aftermarket specialist Kits-World Models has launched a new range of pre-printed self-adhesive diorama bases aimed at aircraft modellers.

Kits-World Bases

These will be available in 1/144, 1/72, 1/48 and 1/32 scales and cover a variety of location types, with each researched meticulously in terms of both terrain and season. Initially there will be 30 designs released, with details still being finalised as AMW went to press.

Among the first to be released, KWB 48-505-Wood planked revetments depicts a location suitable for a winter/continuation war scene with Soviet or Finnish aircraft or an Eastern Front German/Soviet airfield. It represents a common attempt to provide rudimentary footings for a parked aircraft, with planks of wood to prevent it from being bogged down in the soft ground. The base size in this scale is 67 x 67cm, and if just the planked sections are used then this could cater for two fighter/light-attack size models, making it good value for money. With care it could even potentially be used for up to four subjects.

The 1/48 scale bases will retail for £17.95 and are available from: www.kitsworld.co.uk
