Noy's Miniatures Soviet era Tarmac and Taxiway

Next in their line of superb photo quality tarmac prints is this one that is typical of what one finds on Russian and ex-Warpac airfields. It is a section of their unique hexagonal tarmac and taxiway sections. These photo realistic bases include some off areas as well as the usual taxi guidance lines. Like all of Noy's Miniatures bases, it is printed on high quality thick paper and based on photos of various Russian built  tarmacs and taxiways to ensure the highest fidelity.

These unique bases were used in the Soviet Union from the 1930s through the Cold War and are still in use in Russia, ex-Warpac countries, ex-Soviet states and other places where Soviet influence was felt.

There are three sizes available, one in all three of the more popular scales; 1/144, 1/72 and 1/48.

The 1/144 scale base shown to the right is perfect for the smaller scale. This base measures 5.8 x 4.1 inches (14.8 x 10.5 cm). It is shown with an Attack Hobby MiG-17F. Price is $3.60 plus shipping







This next one is the 1/72 base. It is larger of course at 12.2 x 8.66 inches (31 x 22 cm). It is shown with the Zvezda MiG-27D. Price is $4.95 plus shipping








The third base is 1/48 scale and the largest of the lot. It is 15.6 x 11 inches (39.5 x 28 cm) and will fit a variety of 1/48 aircraft such as the Czech Model L-39 shown. Price is $6.75 plus shipping
