Default Houston George Bush Intercontinental Airport (KIAH)



I'd like to share some pictures of my diorama of the south Terminal C of Houston George Bush Intercontinental Airport (KIAH).

Enjoy.

Awesome diorama! I want to do something like this one day. Are you going to do other parts of the airport as well?

the vehicle tunnel is a wonderful touch. What is your base, that you were able to do that?

Hey Greyst....
It is always a pleasure to see your works....nice works, Bro...

How did you make the tunnel passage way? Did you cut out the base board?

Looking forward to meet you...

No, I am not going to make other parts of IAH. This diorama provides enough space for me to display my Continental fleet.

The base is a plywood. I made a hole on it for the ramp.

Yes, I did cut out a hole on the base board. Then I used plastic sheets to make the ramp. Here's a picture when the ramp is removed.

greyst#41....As I said with the I think ORD or MDW diorama AWESOME! Love the lighting and the detail on your creations. Do you think you are going to have all of the Continentals converted to UA?

No guessing that Continental is the major carrier there!!
Lovely airport - very realistic and captures the scene beautifully.

I don't normally pay attention to 1:400 model planes, but the ones in your diorama look lovely! Probably because the diorama is so good, but that 737 looks very nice! Airport needs a bit of grime and dirt though to add to the realism!

Fantastic work! You've got them all laid out just like the real Terminal C! 777's on the far ends!

Amazing.

I kind of miss Continental mainly because United's old premerger livery was one of my favorites
