Wings900 1:500 airport with 1:400 aircraft?

Hello...
I'm going to set up my airport soon. But i have a questions

I looked at on the internet, most of airport accessories sets are in 1:500 but I prefer to have 1:400 airplane model (actually, i have some 1:400 at home). Is it ok if I combine 1:400 aircraft with 1:500 airport accessories? Or i should buy 1:500 airplane to match with airport scale???

I never buy the airport accessories sets before, i will buy my first one soon.

Thanks

1:500 accessories work fine for 1:400 aircraft

Yes i agree, you can get away with most things 1:500 on a 1:400 airport.
There might be the odd thing that looks wrong.....

Re: 1:500 airport with 1:400 aircraft?

I'm a self-proclaimed rivet counter, so the size difference would really be noticeable to me. I have a whole bunch of 1:500 accessories, most of which never looked right with 1:500 planes. The 1:500 accessories fit the 1:400 planes much more nicely than they do the 1:500 planes.

I, too, agree with what everyone else says. Using 1:500 GSE and accessories look fine with 1:400 aircraft. Besides, when you think about it, buildings and vehicles vary drastically in size in real life so there is not "perfect" scale.

Re: 1:500 airport with 1:400 aircraft?

With The Exception Of My High Density Foamboard Tarmacs, All My Airport Terminals & Gates Are 500 Scale, Though I Do Use 400 Scale GSE.
To Echo A-Loser, the Jetways are Too Large For 500 Scale Models & Fit Perfectly Well With 400.
Terminals Do Appear A Tad Small, But Not By Much...Can't Go Wrong!







This Is Completely A Herpa Starter Set 2 Which Includes A 500 Scale Foil. It Works Well Too. Not Most Of The GSE Is 400 Scale, But I Included A Few 500 Scale Peices.





In My Earlier Days Of Collecting I Also Used That Set For Airliners.

1:500 work exceptionally well with 1:400 airplanes but you should buy some 1:500 scaled aeroplanes
