Manchester Airport Terminal 2 (1:500 scale).

Ciao to all.
Finally i projected Manchester Airport, Terminal 2. I know the airport is developing and the left side of Terminal 2 is changing, but i decided to create the airport as it was until few months ago.









I decided to build Manchester Terminal 2 because of the famous airplanes line up, one of the most exciting and beautiful of all the airports around the world.
These...









This is just a sketch wrote to understand what i have to realize



This is the size of the Terminal 2 area






These are the structures, departing to the main terminal body, linked to the jetways. They have to be painted.







I have created the tarmac grid and the long terminal building









I will continue creating the parking stands and all the various apron lines and marks.

Re: Manchester Airport Terminal 2 (1:500 scale).

Good luck on your project, an architectually complex project that involves some unusual shapes. I'll be following along.

Re: Manchester Airport Terminal 2 (1:500 scale).

Looks interesting. Especially these glass structures. Maybe they shouldn't be painted?

Thanks Pete.
I have bending problems because the wood panel is too long and too few thick for the lenght. The wood panel is 150 cm x 50 cm x 8 mm thick, painting it with water-colors and then drying at the sunlight it bends; but this time it bended too much so i decided a drastic measure: i have bought three small wood panels, 50 cm x 50 cm x 8 mm each, 1 kg of 1.2 cm long nails and a superglue (the total thickness will be 1.6 cm). I will nail and will stick the three panels in the back of the 150 cm wood panel, flattening it.
Then i will start to draw all the apron lines.

Re: Manchester Airport Terminal 2 (1:500 scale).

Just a question, if you can answer me: Terminal 2 can handle A380's airplanes?
Thanks for the answer.

No Charter. Only Stand 12 (Terminal 1) and remote stands 61 & 63 I believe.

Thanks so much for the answer Adam. So i can calculate the space among the three parking lines of each parking areas and the distance among each parking areas.

This is how i was able to flatten the bending wood panel: three wood panel on the back and a lot of nails.
(In this side of the wood panel i will realize Osaka "Kansai" Airport).



I finished the long, straight, terminal building and the jetways



































The next step is to draw the apron lines.
