Homemade 1:400 Airport Diorama and more!

Hi aviators!

I've just started collecting 1:400 aircraft models and I'm very new to this forum, I like it so much. I'm also trying to build a model airport so that I can display my aircraft with it and I would like to share it with you guys and hope you guys would like it and I would appreciate feedbacks and comments!

I used many of Airport Diorama Designs - Your source for 1:400 and 1:500 Model Airport Foils model buildings for my airport, I enjoy crafting airport so much and the result is really good, love it so much! I would like to thanks JetBlue777 (http://www.wings900.com/vb/model-air...ing-foils.html) for being kind enough to send and share his custom made ground foil with me.
I'm currently designing my own airport tarmac as I want my own airport configurations and I use (two) 1.2m by 0.6m table to combine it to a 1.2m x 1.2m platform!
Model humans, cars and trees are coming in soon to spice up the airport too!
Hope you will like it, Enjoy!

P.S. will update with the progress of the airport soon!



Cheers!

Beautiful pictures and nice start, congratulations!!!

And also, If I were, you, I wouldn't use styrofoam...

Re: Homemade 1:400 Airport Diorama and more!

Thanks Leonardo! Appreciate your comments, I've resized the pictures, hope it isn't too big now.
Other foam board was recommended but I couldn't get it near my area so I use styrofoam at the moment, would definitely change it to other foam if I could get them! Thanks again

hehe you're welcome! Pictures are fine now
Try using plywood panels on your terminal. I think styrofoam is too fragile... I used wood on my airport and I will keep using it when I make other airports

Yeap! I use Balsa wood for the all my building structures, just that the terminal building roof is styrofoam because it looks thicker! and maybe .. looks more like ... a roof hahaha
Styrofoam doesn't work well with UHU glue though, they will corrode the styrofoam

Try using Elmer's wood glue. That's what I use and it works great!
