Northwoods Regional Airport

Just a quick layout I put together over the last few days. Wanted to give handmade terminal making a try, as well as creating a smaller layout that will provide a destination for my CWA airport that some of my regional flights depart from as well as some smaller personal traffic. I think it turned out pretty good. Only thing im not sure of is I used a cheap felt for my grass as i didn't want to use my expensive stuff but i think i may have to find something else as it just doesn't look realistic enough. Still some fine details need to be completed then the traffic should arrive!

Thanks for looking!

A very neat little setup. Love the terminal design.

Re: Northwoods Regional Airport

Neat. The terminal glasses do reflect light strongly, but that certainly has a sunset or sunrise charm to it.

Re: Northwoods Regional Airport

I really like the use of corrugated roofing material--it goes perfectly atop the great little terminal and the overall effect reminds me of some of the famous Frank Gehry projects (think Guggenheim Bilbao, the Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, or the Case Western Reserve University--my dental school alma mater--School of Business Management Building). At any rate, regarding the grass, you might consider keeping what you are already using, but then experiment by dabbing on hundreds of tiny dots in lighter and darker shades of green onto the grass, which would eliminate the current monochromatic effect. If that still isn't realistic enough, or if it looks bad, then you could switch to "Plan B" and use your more expensive turf, or alternatively, SNOW!!.

I think it is cool to have an airport in Wisconsin's Great Northwoods--I spent many childhood summers--and some awesome winter/ Christmas holidays--up there In those days, it was quite an ordeal to get all the way up to Rhinelander, but truly worth the trouble.

Thanks! Yes it is a very nice reflection actually more then i expected. Wish i could get it to reflect in a more natural orange/red but we will make it work!

Thank you very much! You wouldn't believe how hard it was to find something with that corrugated texture locally! Obviously being in the northwoods I still have to add some trees so that may help some and of course some snow would look neat! At first I was actually debating a replica of Rhinelander, but eventually just went with a generic layout. If i can become a little more crafty I may try Appleton or Green bay next!

Re: Northwoods Regional Airport

Really interesting airport! I also like some smaller, kinda cozy airports too. Wish I could also have a secondary diorama. I used to have another one (Golden Spike Regional Airport), but it is now stored and without further plans

Re: Northwoods Regional Airport

Very nice airport! I also like the roofing this way a lot and the reflecting windows give it a special effect. Also the layout of the apron I like a lot. It is a small but nice and functual layout.
Good work! Looking forward to seeing more of it in operation.

Thank you! I cant wait to get some traffic on it as well. Really wish the regional models were supported better but I guess that means some more regional customs may be in the works for me!
