1/500 San Diego International Airport SAN
 
3 Attachment(s)
I am starting to build a 1/500 scale airport based on San Diego International Airport. I have started with the newest part of the airport, Terminal 2 West.
Still lots of painting to do, but I am hoping to schedule some flights here by the end of the month.

Thanks! I will start designing Terminal Two East this weekend and add to the new terminal.

What did you use for the terminal building?

Beautiful! Realistic! Detailed! I love the surface texture of the terminal, the offset of the windows, and the inclusion of all of the building's complex forms. I wish you would give a tutorial on your methods--we would love and appreciate it:love:!
Thanks for sharing this amazing project.
Pete:cool:

Looks amazing! I loved my time in San Diego in the summer of last year, the airport was very good looking and spacious. This diorama recollects my good memories from SAN airport!

That is all detailed from my 3D printer. I have the terminal put together with about 10 different sections that attach together. I even have the thousands of solar panels up on the roof. I am hoping to custom print the boarding gates soon. For now, I am using part of the standard Herpa Wing gates, some of which are a little too high for my RJ's.
As I do more painting, I'll add some more photos.

Amazing job, the terminal building seems the real one scaled at 1:500!
Great design, did you use epoxy resin?

I am using Grey PLA for my 3D printer to make the terminal buildings.
I've attached a few more photos after doing some painting today.

Another question: how did you achieve the texture of your apron? I think the slight surface roughness, and lack of gloss, is simply a fantastic look. One more element of a great-looking airport!

All hand painted. Taking forever!!!
4 different shades of flat paint, both oil and acrylic. And then scotch tape in a grid pattern.
I still have the other side of the tarmac to paint, and at San Diego, that section of the airport has smaller tiles. Going to take a lot longer:eek:

Was there a special technique to achieve the "grout lines" (seams) in between the tiles. I mean, the effect is brilliant--among the best I've ever seen!!!

All hand painted with different shades of grey.
The lines may just be the edge gaps on the tape I used in some of the areas.
