Funchal Airport updated (1:500).

Do you remember this airport? This is Funchal Airport, my first layout and, probably, my best airport. I tried to realize a perfect replica of this amazing holiday airport and i obtained a masterpiece (from the basement point of view): i added the pillars and the section of the runway above them.
Now i want to update the airport and start to use again for my charter traffic: i want to resurface the runway, the taxiway and the apron, updating everything using my improved skills.

Re: Funchal Airport updated (1:500).

One of the most amazing airport layouts i have ever seen. I visited Madeira a couple of years ago and this one brings a lot of memories back. Amazing

Re: Funchal Airport updated (1:500).

Thanks for the support my friends.
This was my first layout and, especially for the runway, i used some "strange" artifices: for the central and lateral lines of the runway i used the steri-strips ( white scotch tape used in surgery ), while to realize the pillars of the runway i used the plugs of the cannula needles.
Now my idea is to cover everything with a coat of white and then to repaint the runway, the taxiway and the apron; then i will have to create the tarmac grid and i can start to use this wonderful airport again.

Re: Funchal Airport updated (1:500).

This was the first airport I ever clapped eyes on from you Charter. Simply outstanding work. Do you remember when I requested so many photo's to save? The models and airport work fantastic together. I have to congratulate you also for acquiring the Thomson 757-200 Custom model.

This looks A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!

Come one! I think this is by far your best diorama, Alessandro!
It looks absolutely lovely! Top quality!

Is the Jet2 B757-200 a custom model?

I remember Adam, you was so nice asking me a lot of photos of different airlines.
I hope to improve this layout and maybe to add a new parking stand. Now my skills are different than 5 years ago so i hope to do a good job.

Thanks Thom, i also can't wait to start the work improving the diorama so i can start to use it for the charter traffic. It is a pity we still don't have the TAP A319.

Re: Funchal Airport updated (1:500).

I think it looked fine. How did you make the elevated runway?
