Roland Garros Airport (Reunion - Indian Ocean) 1:500.

Hello.
Roland Garros International Airport is situated in Reunion Island, Indian Ocean.
It is part of French Overseas Terriories and is served by these airlines:


Air Austral
Air France
Air Madagascar
Air Mauritius
Corsair International
French Bee


Few airlines but mainly widebodies, including all the Air Austral models in 1:500 scale.
Now it is time for some narrowbodies.
I have finished the terminal building, now i will start with the apron.

Interesting project, Ale! At first I thought you were constructing the Roland Garros stadium in Paris!!! On a serious note, this is going to be one of your most unusual works, my friend!!!

interesting one, Ale! How many airports do you plan to construct, my friend? You're now officially the Roman King of Airports, my friend!!! I'm sure there are many airports in the world but, please leave some for the rest of us, Ale!

Re: Roland Garros Airport (Reunion - Indian Ocean) 1:500.

Charter perhaps you can slow down a bit. Nearly the entire first page of the model airports section is filled with your posts - half of which don't even have pictures of the airport yet. You are very creative but many of these creations are very similar in look. Perhaps you could try to vary them with showing more landside area or more of the terminal, otherwise most of them are empty grey ramps.

I am finishing all the airports i have in my mind and i have planned, then i will start to operate with them all.
I am sorry if they are similar, but these are real airports not fantasy ones.
I am working on the various planned layouts until i am on wheelchair because when (i hope) i will restart to walk i will not have time to realize them.
And then i am realizing them for the very few members still posting comments, for the immense number of guests each day following the various Wings900 forums and, especially, for my pleasure.

A 747-400 and 777-300ER are very similar in size, the difference shouldn't be this big

Uuuuuuuh, yes Leo, i did not notice!
What a weird and bad-assembled pic i have chosen.
Or, maybe, the two airplanes (Air Austral B777 and Corsair B747) are in different scale....

Re: Roland Garros Airport (Reunion - Indian Ocean) 1:500.

I love this airport--the concept of creating models of these remote and exotic places lets the imagination run wild! I especially like the appearance of the terminal roof. As I have said before, because we view our dioramas mostly from above, rooftop surfaces are critical and you have done an excellent job on this. And as always, your tarmac / apron representations are SUPERB!! Well done and thank you again for your abundance and generosity on the forum.
