I haven't posted in quite a long time and in fact, this creation is also relatively old. In the meantime I was focusing on my Flickr account, but somehow forgot Yahoo credentials after a period of no use, so now I am unable to access it. With no means of recovering it I have lost all motivation to do anything connected with LEGO, but now I am slowly switching back to this wonderful page and its less wonderful uploader. :)
So, enough with this emotional introduction, here it is, a microscale airport for popular 1:500 scale airplanes.
Forgive me for I have sinned, but yes, I have quite an extensive collection of this metal planes (mostly Majorette ones, but also a couple of "fancier" Herpa models).
I have a dream of building a huge airport for all the remaining ones, but I will see how much time and will I am going to have to get it done.
I tried to incorporate some SNOT techniques for tarmac markings and some other details to bring it to life.
Behind the terminal building you can find a multistorey parking lot and a small administrative building.
Who says you can't mix LEGO with other models? This airport looks great, I agree the SNOT runway markings look great. I really like the design of the terminal, especially the look of that big glass roof on one of the main buildings. 1:500 scale huh? I wonder what scale/brand my old model planes are, maybe I will look in the attic for them, I know they are still up there somewhere.
Yahoo do enjoy sending you in a loop - the only way you'll get back to your Flickr is to speak to a human. Best of luck with that... I like Lego models for other types of models, gives them a purpose. Nice work!
Very nice work! I really like the how you angled the area around the disc-shaped terminal. I do understand your enthusiasm for the diecast micro airliners, but why not build some in scale 1:160, or even smaller, and a suitable airport!
