    Like it says. I'm trying to find a model or models of modern HAS. Anything from the more angular European and US designs to the arch shaped RAF. Preferably in 1/144 but 1/72 is OK as I can photocopy/reduce the size to 1/144.

    Also whilst I'm on the subject I'm also looking for Vietnam style revetments for a US air base diorama.

    Oh and any control towers. Modern military for preference but civilian would be good as well.

    I've already got the hangers (mainly a WWII design) by tom tom and the WWII RAF and 50's RAF/USAF tower from Kampfgruppe1/144.

    Any suggestions......

    Maybe this will help a bit. Arched type hangers/shelters for aircraft. They are 6mm or about 1/268 so some resizing will be needed.

    For those not in the military, HAS stands for Hardened Aircraft Shelter, large arched steel and concrete style buildings like you see at European airbases. The Iraqi version usually has a missile size hole in the side if it. Good luck in the search.
