Default Scale airport

In the future I will build my own 1:400 scale airport. It will feature an A in the middle as you can see. I have many ideas and 1 secret idea that will set it aside from others. I’m not an artist, this is still a work in progress.

Thank you!, I will try to work on the drawings as much as I can. It’s going to take a while from start to finish but I’m determined to do it!

Not to be a buzzkill, but don't lose sight of how colossally big something like that would be.

Just based on your rough depiction there (assuming it's a 200ft wide runway, 100ft wide taxiways, etc).... you project would be no less than 6ft wide x 12ft long.

Did a second layout. Here I’m outlining the difference areas my airport will have, in the green area I will be doing a blast to the past area, an area dedicated to retired planes or airlines that have disappeared. So we can still remember them.
