    So this build is still progressing steadily and I expect to finish very soon. Here are a few earlier shots of what I have been doing with the base. A combination of scratch materials, card kits and other plastic kits for the tarmac and structures

      Okay so I've been busy building since the last post. I can say that my small airfield is now pretty much completed. I will post ongoing updates of events as they unfold on the base. Keep watching

      Early dawn was breaking over Evie. The base had been evacuated during the renovations. But today was opening day as the sky brightened

      By mid morning large lorries delivering goods and supplies for the base drove past the main gates

      They cleared security at the Secondary gates and were flagged through

        Okay people with the worldwide lockdown I've found a little time on my hands to produce a different variety of updates to Evie Air Base.
        It's been nearly 3 years since my last update but I will pick up from where I left off and provide a view of the progress made with there. In my usual unique 'Supermodelnation' style, I have created several short stories that accompany each update. The short stories are not always linked together but each provides an imaginative view of activities on the Base and hopefully breathe life into an otherwise inanimate creation. The remaining posts will all be images converted into short 'films'. Feel free to enjoy the videos and follow the stories.
        Whilst the stories were created some time ago the video compilations are all brand new.
        I appreciate these may not be every model enthusiasts cup of tea, so if not please look away now.
        I hope you appreciate the different form of creativity this brings to this forum (as well as the back breaking hours that were taken to create.

          It is 2017... Construction work is now complete and the long awaited opening day has arrived. The re-opening of Evie Air Base promises to be a grand affair. All the arrangements on the base are set. British regal pomp and pageantry is about to roll in and excitement fills the air. It is around mid-morning when sirens suddenly echo all around the base.

            We are still in 2017 and in the months of August and September when untold havoc and destruction was wrought upon the Caribbean Islands and parts of the USA by three major hurricane systems- Harvey, Irma and Maria. Millions are left homeless. Thousands have died. Evie Air Base is part of the global humanitarian relief effort underway to provide help and support for those that desperately need it

              It is now 2018 and at the time Bashar Al Assad was reported to have dropped chemical weapons on his own citizens. The Western condemnation was swift and definitive. This was backed with a decision for a short, sharp military response to send a clear message to the Syrian regime on what was and was not acceptable cause. Of course Evie Air Base was part of the military operation.
