My handmade airports (1:500 scale).

Sat Nov 02, 2019 2:28 pm

Ciao to all.
Since years i am building and selling handmade airports. I use multilayer wood panels then i use paint, tempera colors, Uniposca and Lumocor pens, rulers, skills and...the "miracle" is done.
I have created many airports, real and fantasy, but in the last years i am specializing in real airports and i also started to build the terminal buildings by myself, using the wood.
Enjoy.

Do you have pictures of your IAD? I would love to see it.
About HKT, is it the old one or the one with new terminal?

I will post the pics of Washington "Dulles" in the next hours.
About Phuket i am interested in reproducing the sea, sand, grass and runway (the most important features of this holiday airport) and part of the apron with a section of the new terminal building.
I am finishing the storage space with all the airports i have realized so i can't use big wood panels, at least wood panels big enough to realize large aprons.
My plan is to cover all the world with the most important/beautiful/useful airports i am interested in: i particularly love holiday airports with a leisure/charter traffic, then international/intercontinental hubs with a large European traffic. In fact, even for IAD and SEA i realized section of the airports with international terminal buildings and, for SEA-TAC, even the next to-be-built walkway bridge (i am really proud of it!).
Living in Europe (Italy -> Rome) i am interested in airports used by European airlines for their long haul routes, covering all the continents.

Among the airports i have realized there are also:

Manchester Terminal 2
London City
Salzburg
Innsbruck
East Midlands Cargo area

Among the airports i planned there are also:

Nuremberg
Montego Bay
Seychelles
Reunion "Roland Garros"
Mauritius
Varadero
a cargo hub like Leipzig-Halle
a Canadian airport (Edmonton or Vancouver or Toronto).

As i already said i am realizing section of the airports because the entire airport is too big and i have no space; i have realized big sections of London City, Dubai (for a friend from Dubai), Rome FCO Satellite terminal, Malta.
I have about 15.000 models in 1:500 scale so i have to find an hub for the majority of them...

Nice Terminal B at IAD :) If you want it to be exact, place Alitalia A330 to the second gate on the left of the Mid field ATC tower. They park at B48 :)

The cruise port one is amazing
Instead of typing in "mods", consider using the report function.
Love how every "travel blogger" says they will never fly AA/Ethihad again and then says it again and again on subsequent flights.
