Hong Kong old Kai Tak Airport

hi, firstly I have to say I am new to this forum, and plz forgive me for any mistake I live in HK, and I have been planning to build the kai tak airport model for half a year, and have been purchasing model aircrafts which did land in kai tak, however, blueprints and diagram of kai tak in the internet are so limited and after months of serching it's still not enough to draw sketches of the complicated airport. I 'd like to ask where do u guys usually find and download airport diagrams and blueprints? can anyone of you share with me the imformation of kai tak you have? (blueprints, diagrams and scales etc) I will keep up in posting pictures of the airport when started.

Thanks for helping me cuz I love Kai Tak so much...I watch landings and take offs at home of kai tak when i was small~and that makes me love "wings"!

Re: Hong Kong old Kai Tak Airport

Hi,

a lot information you could get from Google Earth. There is a feature where you could measure the real items, like runway length, road sizes, terminal building sizes and all other items. Once you measures you will need just to convert in to your scale and you will get the actual size how big that item should be I took lots of information on Google Earth Very useful

I just looked on Google Earth and it says that this airport is no longer in use? Even the images of shows that this aiport is quite demolished?

But you could try, maybe you will find some info there
Hope it helps!

Re: Hong Kong old Kai Tak Airport

yea, thanks for your help, but really, the terminal or the foils and almost 90% of the airport had been already demolished on or before 2002, and from google earth we can only see the rough look of the entire airport, which is actually now car parks, grass and rural land....(it's said that a brand new cruise terminal would be build within a decade at kai tak)
And therefore I am asking for blueprints or diagrams...........thanks soooo much

Re: Hong Kong old Kai Tak Airport

Hope these helps. This is what I could find on google.
Check them out and see what you can use from there.
It's hard to find blueprints, but a larger resolution of this small thumbnail below would do me just fine.

Good luck.

Re: Hong Kong old Kai Tak Airport

I have lots of photos I took from a helicopter when flying with the RAF in Hong Kong.
Here are some of them which I hope will be of use.

Make sure your photo size is correct ( you can check when you click the attachment 'clip' icon ) than select upload one by one, maximum 10 photos are allowed each thread.

Re: Hong Kong old Kai Tak Airport

Thanks for the tips
We have finally finished the Kai Tak model, and put it in our school's open day. We did not make all the details due to the lack of time, but it's fine :p here are some of the photos~
PS: and the ramps(boarding bridges?) are too big that we can't place 2 of them in same gate
