Smile New 1/500 Cargo Airport : step 1


I've started a new project building a 1/500 Cargo Airport. I bought the custom tiles from "Airport Diorama Designs" and got background AD1 as well. I bought "Bison" spray glue for attaching the tiles once printed.

My original board was 240cm x 62.5cm which was a little small so I bought a 244cm x 80cm MDF 2.5mm. Better manoeuver space for the planes!

It's fun trying out the different tiles and lay out of the airport and looking up the neccesary accessoires.

That's it for now. Tips always welcome.

Looking good. For added realism, give the buildings a weathered look. I have the GJ 1/400 foil coming to me at the weekend. Will have to modify the ground layout to my needs but is all good otherwise. Keep posting pics. Always on lookout for inspiration.

Nice! I have never been a fan of pre-fab or "purchased" airport buildings, but I like how this is looking so far.
“I can imagine no more rewarding a career. And any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction: 'I served in the United States Navy.”
