Default FedEx MD11 on the runway in the wintertime

I spent a whole day long to make this runway for the winter-setup with real snow . My 1st. runway is a bit big for this setup and I don't want to damage it because it's more complex than this one. Here are some photos of the FedEx MD11 on the runway in the wintertime. Hope you like it and have fun taking a look at the pictures.

Day shots are beautiful, although the brightness of the lights then is a bit unrealistic.

Looks great. Did you steal the lights from the Christmas tree? Maybe you can use a dimmer to achieve a more realistic brightness.

Yes, You're right, the christmas is over and I took it from the christmas tree, my wife is not against it . I just need about 90 LEDs and it fits perfect. I don't want to connect, to solder 90 LEDs and cables for some hours . So I saved 4-5 hours for that

The light was a bit brightness and also my camera setting was not not ideal, I set the shutter speed a bit too long. Therefore the LEDs shined brightness and the color temperature K=3900 for the night shots was also not ideal for this light and background.

Would you like really to buy it? I just made it for myself. It's about 75/45/10 cm. Perhaps it will cost also expensive to ship to the USA and It doesn't pay off but I maybe have to think about it, if someone want to buy it, I have to make it better, smaller and safer for transport.

awesome. I wish more people would get into making realistic scenery for their models, but it can take a lot of time and effort. So that makes it more special when we do get to see cool stuff like this. Well done

I was joking! Would love to have something like that. One day I'll make one. If I were you I wouldn't sell it. Thanks for sharing.
