Since i have around 10 days of doing absolutely nothing, i decided to build my own model airport. Started working on it yesterday, and already have one section of it built. Here are the pics of the design (still not complete), and what i have built so far.

So if one builds a 1/200 airport, the runway would have to be 15m long at least... building a 1/200 airport is one of my dreams, but I realized that, before I execute this plan, I should get myself, like, a loft or something.

I collect 1/400 models mainly from Gemini Jets. I have about a dozen or so aircraft right now. Originally I wanted to make a model of PIT but then realized that it would be way too big so I then decided to make my own design. It kinda resembles the old PIT terminal. I will post pics of my design shortly.

Unfortunately carson, my project is on hold right now. Im leaving tomorrow, wont be back for another month.. so it will be some time since i post updates. BUT.. during this time im gonna be working on the electrical system for lights, so it should be more interesting when im back. For the meantime, i added some planes around the terminal and took a pic so you guys can have an idea on how it looks like so far. enjoy!
In the first photo I was wondering where you'd fit it. With no reference points, it looked huge Then on the bed, it showed a more realistic size. Looks awesome though. Can't wait to see the finished product.
