1/400 Summer Season Model Airport

Since last winter I have been working on this new airport. The idea was to have it completed before or at the latest the start of the summer season. Of course, this did not happen. I also worked on schedules, looking at FR24 and other sources to help me better showcase the models on the airport. This will give a greater idea of operations throughout each update. Each update will be based on a specific hour of the day.

All current updates will be based on Monday. The first during the period between 0800-0900. Some schedules are operational during the night... which without actual airport lighting installed is almost impossible to photograph. I have no intention of installing LED lights but I will attempt some kind of method to try and illuminate some aspects of the airport. This will be a trial and error procedure. For the most part, all photo's will be during daylight hours hence why I have started at 0800.

Here is the first update... some will be busier than others. Some models will only feature taxiing past because I want to give an idea of the scale of the airport as if it was real. Rather than using all stands visible and making it look overcrowded.

Clean setup, overall well done. What did you use to make the cones. Adds a nice little touch of realism.

Re: 1/400 Summer Season Model Airport

Airport threads are always very interesting because of the variety in traffic at each scale model aircraft and your airport is wonderfully interesting...that Virgin Queen looks resplendent at that Gate!!!

Re: 1/400 Summer Season Model Airport

I love the cargo area but the entire layout looks beautiful and full of potential.
Great job with the apron marks and with the beautiful runway.

Thanks Leo. The cargo aspect is an important part for me.

Thank you. They were made by someone else. Just small pieces of plastic it seems. Very delicate little things.

Thank you Charter. All this work is credit to you. Without you none of this would be possible I don't think. Your work helped me fulfill my potential.

Re: 1/400 Summer Season Model Airport

Very nice layout! I really enjoy how you have incorporated plenty of taxiways along with a portion of runway! Everything looks very clean and your grass looks very realistic. Looking forward to more!
