Noy's Miniatures is a company in Israel that produces an nice array of color-printed card stock to represent sections of ramps, taxiways, and runways to display your favorite modern fighter model 'in context'. Their 1/72 sections are printed on A4 stock while the 1/48 scale sections are printed on A3.
In this release, they've created a typical parking ramp as seen at many 1960s-1970s airbases, most notably the ramps of US airbases in Vietnam or Thailand. These were open ramps with so many parking spots that they numbered each spot and painted run-in lines to help weary pilots to safely park their aircraft. Of course these open ramp areas in Vietnam gave way to revetments to prevent a chain reaction of explosions should a line accident or mortar attack detonate one of the aircraft.
This section is great for your 1/48 F-100, F-105, B-57, A-1, or other Vietnam-era air warrior, though you can really use them for any nice aircraft parking where you need a little extra room to spot your crew figures, bomb cart, maintenance van, etc.
