1/400 Model Airport 2020

For the month of October I have been working on this new project. Very much focused on a modern day era with a few minor exceptions but in a realistic way. More manageable schedules and general layout.

I had the idea of naming this airport Sandall Stone International Airport. Any thoughts?

The main stands include 5 narrowbody stands (up to 757), 2 widebody stands and an additional stand for 767 size aircraft to help utilise space for other aircraft.

The cargo stands consist of 5 narrowbody stands (up to 757), 4 Intermediate stands used for 767 size aircraft and then up to 3 widebody stands. The configuration allows for more utilisation of various aircraft sizes depending on the given types operating.

General overview:

Re: 1/400 Model Airport 2020

Looks very neat Adam. Your craft skills are very good and thats giving this diorama a lot of charm. You are also lucky to have some models in 1:400 scale absent from 1:500, like the gorgeous easyJet A320neo!

Re: 1/400 Model Airport 2020

Your airports have really excellent craftsmanship--their build quality is superb and are a joy to look at! I also really like the seamless integration of the background. Beautiful!!

I have that model on order. Shouldn't be too long before it arrives. I am wondering how I can include this into my schedules with it primarily based on Summer movements?

It is available my friend.
I think you could buy two of them, Enter Air is one of the most important European charter airlines, basing the two models on your airport and starting some flights for holiday airports in Greece (Kos, Mykonos, Skiathos, Santorini, Rodhes, Corf¨), Spain (Tenerife, Fuerteventura, Las Palmas, Palma de Mallorca), Portugal (Faro and Funchal).
Great airport Adam, positve rep. added.
