1/400 US Airport - Southwest Airlines Base

Hello and welcome to my venture across the Atlantic focusing primarily on Southwest Airlines from the early 2000s through to present day amongst other airlines and aircraft frames that will also feature.

My love for Southwest Airlines began when ITV2 aired Airline USA. As a B737 fan, this series was very fitting with all the clips of their fleet in action during each episode.

The inspiration from this project is a section from Chicago Midway. I am aware the layout wasn't always like this and given my choice of other operations, this will be purely a fantasy concept.

The base print is by Layover Layouts who does exceptional work.

Overview...

Re: 1/400 US Airport - Southwest Airlines Base

Great Adam! It looks like an older version of Las Vegas, maybe early 2000s. Gotta love the presence of Southwest in 1:400 scale!

Thank you for sharing your vision. It's different but significant to me to welcome Southwest into my collection.
