1:600 Terminals?

Fri Sep 28, 2012 3:36 pm

I have quite a bit of 1:600 planes, and I am wondering if you know where to get or how to build a 1:600 scale terminal.

A300/319/320/321/332/333/343/346 B732/738/744/752/762/763/772/773 CRJ200/700/900 ERJ140/145/170/175 MD88

I built my own "architectural model" using foam core and balsa wood. I did it carefully to scale, had plans of my own terminal to go, sort of based on existing facilities but essentially generic. You can find materials at a hobby or art store. Architectural model materials can be had a specialty store, or online vendors. Son of an architect, I had it in my blood to try it.

Here are some professional examples. 1:500 and 1:600 scale seem to be common, so I bet that actual architect model supplies (such as trees and cars) can be found to match. I never tried to add those elements.

This one is 1":40", or 1:480, very close to the 1:500 of Herpa models, which I think they use.

This one is 1"=50', so 1:600 scale, TUL Airport. To me it looks like they are using Schabak models, particularly

This one of Cologne Airport (CGN), 1:500, looks like it's entirely foam core, not much other detail. Easy to do. It works for CGN, layered geometric shapes.

Have fun!

There is always the Herpa 1:500 scale airport accessories that include terminal buildings, jetways, and ground service equipment. I used to have this for my Schabak 1:600 collection. It wasn't exactly to scale but it did the job well.
