Lightbulb Kemayoran Airport - KMO/WIID - Luchthaven Kemajoran 1/400

Hi guys,

It all started when I was searching for relevant literature of Batavia architecture, and all of a sudden I stumble on the old airport Kemayoran.

Kemayoran Airport, also spelled Kemajoran Airport, was the principal airport for Jakarta, Indonesia, from 1940 until March 1985, when it was replaced by Soekarno-Hatta International Airport.

Kemayoran Airport is the setting for the beginning of The Adventures of Tintin comic, Flight 714, by Hergé. Tintin and his friends, Captain Haddock, Professor Calculus, and Snowy, transit there for refueling stop on the way to Sydney, Australia.

Apparently there's very little data about Kemajoran available on the web. and that there was mostly just a general illustration only.

Then, I was tempted to reconstruct a simple Kemajoran diorama in 1:400 scale.. The main target is to find the early overall layout of this airfield.






Kemajoran MasterPlan in 1947 :





Once the masterplan is converted to a scale of 1:400, it turns out the entire area of Kemajoran could reach 6.2m x 4.7m in real measurement due to its unique layout.

Finally, I have to select the area to be focused on.. and it's the yellow box section:





Then I redraw the masterplan layout, with schematic plans including materials to be applied:

You are awesome at extracting details and mapping it. Great work. Looking forward to you building the airport and runway if that is the direction you are heading.

Thanks for your comment, [FlyingFan1], [airplane]

Actually, it took me three years to get the Kemajoran data that I need to realize this diorama.. so, let's skip forward those three years up to today

Re: Kemayoran Airport - KMO/WIID - Luchthaven Kemajoran 1/400

My plan is to make three diorama in three periods: 50s, 60s, and 70s..
But for now I only made a diorama for the 50's period.. if I'll get more data, then I can go make the 60's and 70's.

..and the most important: airplane diecast availability

Let's fast forward to another 4 months:


KEMAJORAN TERMINAL & BUILDINGS in 50's

Hangaar "A":




Hangaar "B":




the method I use




Kemajoran "Aankomst" (Arrival Building):




Kemajoran "Vertrek" (Departure Building):




meanwhile, the landscape is completed.. so now I can do a "scenery" test..
For me, the test is very important for the diorama's beauty

Kemajoran in late 40's





In addition, I also do a "zoom" test .. this test is to determine the amount of detail needed to get a good photo.

Kemajoran in early 70's




Okay, so:
- Landscape: finished.
- Buildings: made.
- Scenery test: done.


Now I wanna find some diecast to fill the diorama that match with the time period (50's)..
..and maybe some airplane also for my next 60's & 70's..

Anyone willing to donate his collection?

Super cool. A DC-5 would be very fitting here due to KLM's activity of the type in the (then) Dutch East-Indies!

Re: Kemayoran Airport - KMO/WIID - Luchthaven Kemajoran 1/400

Thanks for your appreciation, guys.

Unfortunately there's no KLM DC-5 in 1/400 scale, so I think i'll skip it directly to L-749/L1049 era.

I'll keep you updated.

Need more Aeroclassics' PK- planes, especially in 60-70's era
- Garuda DC-8 delivery & red/orange
- Garuda F-28 delivery & red/orange
- Mandala L-188
- Mandala Viscount
- Merpati F-27
