    Even excellent, overall dimensions, pod width, wing area, whichever, the display speaks by itself.

    John, would the plastic be to big and hard to work with for 1:500 models? I know those jetbridges and ground equip. must be a little tricky to make. Planes in the 1:500 scale is mainly what I collect, I only have 6 or 7 1:400 planes versus about 50 1:500 planes. I have already invested a little bit of money in a large herpa airport matt and a few buildings. Would it be too weird looking if I continued with homemade buildings/ground equip?

    Thanks,
    Will C.

    Thanks,
    No, I wouldn't say so. Evergreen have different kinds of sizes of plastic. For instance you're just limited for what your local hobby shop have in the store, but if you know what you're looking for, you can order the evergreen stuff. via your local shop. It is both hard and easy as you need to be working in fine details, I have a hard time making my GSE's in 1:400 scale, but with a little inspiration and knows what it will look like in the end, it will go smooth, it sure does help to visualize what you expect it to look like in the end. Working with evergreen plastic is easy cause of the soft plastic, even the solid tubes can be cut easily with a box cutter, for smaller GSE's, you can use a lightweight cutter. If ever you need any help, just pm me. Hope this helps.

    Best regards,
