I still don't know how to display the airport: the first pic is so beautiful and i must obtain the same effect, realizing a section of the terminal building with the jetways parking stand, the main taxiway and the lateral parking stands.
I am finishing Vienna Terminal 3 so i have some time to think about Las Palmas.

I am starting to work at the airport: both parking aprons will be realized, sand and runway maybe.

Wow.. that will be awesome if you build the Gando diorama..
I think if your scale 1:400 will achieve more scenery effect.

Re: Las Palmas de Gran Canaria "Gando" Airport (Canary Islands - Spain) 1:500.

This airport is extremely "precise": it is rare to see a so detailed airport among the real ones, excluding the mega hubs.
For example, there are three lines delimiting the taxiway:
- white line with black line inside
- yellow line
- 2nd yellow line

Re: Las Palmas de Gran Canaria "Gando" Airport (Canary Islands - Spain) 1:500.

How I just love this airport in real life! So many arrivals, both charters and from time to time heavy Iberia planes. I have seen the IB A340-600 many times in LPA. Good choice Charter!
How do you manage to have space enough for all these airport btw??

I love this airport too, for charter/leisure traffic but especially because of the double ramp, jetways and remote. All the charter airlines parking there with their beautiful airplanes (still too many missing in 1:500!), and the Finnair A330-300 old and new livery parked on one of the two widebodies parking stands!
Really beautiful.


I have space to store the layouts, the space is missing for the many terminal buildings; in fact, for those not so elaborate, i tend to realize just a small section of the real terminal building.

Re: Las Palmas de Gran Canaria "Gando" Airport (Canary Islands - Spain) 1:500.

The ground markings on the apron and taxiways are truly a masterpiece! I also appreciate that you have used a gritty, sandy material on the exposed earth surfaces which adds the requisite landscaping that defines the location of this project. When most Americans think of the Canaries, they are thinking 'jungle' but your airport accurately represents the generally 'desert' nature of these islands. Excellent job!!
