Djerba International Airport (DJE -Tunisie).

Hi.
I had this panel, the old Sharm El-Sheikh Airport, to resurface.



The problem was the sand, impossible to remove, so i thought to another "holiday" airport of north Africa.
The choice was among Tunisie, Egypt and Morocco, the three countries with more holiday places and with more holiday resorts for European holidaymakers.
Egypt has been already "realized" with the mythical Sharm El-Sheikh so i had to decided to realize a mix of three Tunisian airports: Djerba, Enfidha and Monastir and two Morroccan airports: Marrakech and Casablanca.
The project is Djerba International Airport (DJE) with also the traffic of Monastir and Enfidha. Now Herpa should make the great present to realize Nouvelair A320!!!
Here the airlines serving the airport:


Air France
ASL Airlines France
Brussels Airlines
Chair Airlines
Edelweiss Air
Enter Air
Eurowings
Freebird Airlines Europe
GetJet Airlines
Luxair

Nordwind Airlines

Even for this airport the same of Kai Tak: i pasted tempera colors in the wrong way so all the airport (already finished!) was full of cracks! Remove everything and restart everything...

Looking forward to another one of your beautiful creations--you have spoiled us with so many great airports! I am curious--what was the error with the painting--so that others might not reproduce this error?

Thanks Pete.
Tempera colors are mixed using water. To realize grey, a lot of white, few black and water. If the water is too few the mix is too dense and, while it dries, air-bubbles could be created inside, forming a kind of "desert-cracks". With these cracks the dried paint comes off, ruining the layout.
So, what to do? Remove the paint, use sand paper and restart with some paint coats, hoping the "base" (what is present under the paint coat) will resist.

Re: Djerba International Airport (DJE -Tunisie).

For me one of my most beautiful layouts!









Before to start to post the photos of this layout in activity, let me explain something more about the flag reproduced on the background.

I am not Muslim but i wanted something showing the Muslim identity of the airport. Technically speaking it is the flag of "Ottoman Empire" (1517-1923) the maximum expression of Islam, and the "half-moon" is represneted in all the flags of Muslim countries: the half-moon means progress while the white five-pointed star means light and knowledge.

Even technically speaking i should realize this flag

but, as you can understand, it is impossible to realize for me. Contrarily to what we could think (and to what media say us) it isn't jihad-Isis-Al-Qaeda flag but "Ar-Raya al-Islamiyya" is the Muslim flag. Then terrorist organizations took this flag as their symbol.
This airport is based on Djerba layout but i wanted to realize an holiday/scheduled hub for Tunisie, Morocco other Muslims countries. In this way i can use more airlines, even intercontinental.
I thought it was the easier flag to realize and the most known.
Said this, i ask "sorry" to all the Muslim friends of Wings900 finding something wrong in my explanation.

Re: Djerba International Airport (DJE -Tunisie).

Ale...I am afraid you made a BIG mistake.

The flag is Turkey, not Tunisia.

OK, have read above now…..but if it repesents Djerba as a hub, wouldnt you need then TU planes first ? If used as a hub, one Airline will dominate. But dont see it. So who is your home Airline ?
