The only person who has created the most airport dioramas and has a great spirit to host these awards would be Charter.

As my time is very limited and I would hate to keep this contest from you this year, I proudly passed this even on to Charter! I thank him for accepting and I am certain he is a worthy heir to this grand event.

May the best airports win.
I will be following this event and expect the polls with anticipation.

Charter if you need any help I will try to back you up

Thanks Alexakos, thanks my friend. I have a request for you: if someone can change my AKA from Eurofly to Charter it would be better. I wanted to be called Eurofly because of my love for the Italian charter airline, but i know that it is better to be called as many members from all over the World know me: Charter!

Airport builders, be ready to show your marvellous layouts for the 2012 Best Model Airport Awards: i have seen many beautiful dioramas, full of details, great landscapes...some real masterpieces.
But my thought is that all the airport builders must participate to the competiton because each diorama is a masterpiece, in its own way. The important thing is giving a "soul" to the layout, a good landscape, a location.
Participate to the competition: the real goal is to allow the greatest number of members to show their beautiful airports. The real winner is who have the courage to participate to the competition sharing his creation!

Thanks Alex.
To all the friends and airports builders that want to perticipate to the competition: you can show the dioramas of all scales (1:200, 1:400, 1:500...1:1000), but you can participate only to one category. For example, if you have built two airports, a fantasy airport and a copy of a real airport, you can't participate to the Best Fictional and to the Best Existing Airport but you have to decide only one category.
Thanks.

I would like to make some considerations about this beautiful competition.
From the first time the great Alexakos (a mind in constant ferment and a great friend) decided to create the "Best Airport Awards", some years ago, there was a big debate about what an handmade diorama must be. First of all we should do some considerations: many dioramas are really handmade, in the sense that everything of the layout is done by its creator (ground foil, runway/taxiway/apron marks, terminal buildings, even the GSE); many other are done using the computer programs and laser printers, and also the terminal buildings are realized using pieces of plastic shaped for the occasion. Then there are layouts with beautiful landscapes: real sand, real grass (not the modeling grass), trees, water (also if i have not yet seen real water used for the dioramas, but i know that this is very difficult to realize).
Of course i absolutely don't want to judge which technique or which layout is better: they are simply two different things.
I want to report here something a member of another Forum told me 2 years ago:
"this is not an art competiton, we aren't looking at paintings or abstract art...".
I don't know if i am agree with this assertion. I agree with the fact that we are building dioramas, and everything must be well done, eye catching, as perfect as possible, but...let me do the romantic: i have seen many wonderful airports, perfectly built, real masterpieces, but i have also seen many beautiful handmade airports, not so perfect but masterpieces themselves!
This to say that everyone can and must participate to the competition: no fear, no concern, no shame, feel free to express your skills and your love for this wonderful hobby.
