I built my own full scale airport complete with 2 runways, and 8 terminals including a Cargo area for my ONE cargo plane a Fed Ex A310
I built it out of household idems. It isn't a complete replica...more of a "toy"
I go down there and "play" with it all the time
I built a replica of one of the Atlanta Delta concourses
using Foamboard. All you need is about 3 pieces of foamboard, elmers glue and some markers to color the
white foamboard. Get Black foamboard for the roof,
white for the concourses and jetways. This seems to
work for the 1/600 schabak models. I have about 30
Delta schabaks along with 15 international carriers.
a sure bet. I use the herpa 1/500 model airport it works excellent the scale seems perfect compare it with real airport and plane sizes..I have a complete airport using herpa 1/500 blgds on a 9x4 sheet of formica..I have 51 gates many different 1/600 planes..a cargo terminal using n scale railroad freight bldg i have room for 7 cargo planes..i have a maint hangar ho scale fits many planes. taxi ways for railroad highways..works great I have pix of my airport if you want one let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org
I too built my own airport. Its my own airport design. They are very easy to make. You need a large piece of sturdy lumber, spray paint, and paper grass. The paper grass is the kind you would use for train models and stuff. You put masking tape down on the areas where you want the grass to be. Then you spray paint it black or gray. Then you lift up the tape and paste the grass down. Im still working on the terminals so please email me at CEO@GlobalAirlineNetwork.com with info on how to build easy terminals. Thanks!
