Model Airport Question

Sun Dec 03, 2006 1:21 pm

Hello everyone, just a quick question about model airports. Anyways, I was thinking about making a model airport with 1:400 sace aircraft from Geminijets. Now, by looking through their website, I didn't find many accessiories for making an airport. Anyone else know where I can find some 1:400 model airport accessories? Do you think the Herpawings model airport accessories would still be good with 1:400 aircraft? Thanks!

Thanks for the link, but one question: are Dragon wings and Jet-X models on that site all 1:400 scale? And doi they also come with landing gear because some of the pics dont show the aircraft with landing gear. Thanks!

I think they are all 1:400 scale. They all come with landing gear, however they are removable as an alternative option to display them.

Alrgiht thanks! One of the things I was worrying about was if you could really tell the difference with 1:400 and 1:500 scale. Now, how do I purchase things from Dragon Wings website?

here you go, as you can see i also use boxes and stuff as terminals, but mainly look at the first two, those show the gemini jets place mat and the second shows the herpa starter set.
