The pyhsical and mental Demand of building Rodney Heath Airport, Australia
Recently joining DAC I thought I might share a story.
This Past Year I built a what I would think to be easy single runway rural outback airport going by the custom name, Shepparton Rodney Heath Airport. The torment started at a school run, it was hard rubbish week, and I came across a floor sampler, the ones that weigh about a ton and let you see if your floor will look good with a certain wood. I saw this piece and thought.... that would make a good airport (no pun intended) so I ran a 40cm x 30cm 18kg piece of wood about 3-4 km from a sports ground to my school and then another 2km to my house. as soon as I got home I thought. how to make this airport. I wanted to make it look like Shepparton had expanded and so had its airport. I already have a larger airport so I wanted a outback airport. I designed and built the entire airport myself, and also incorporated a small section of the terminal on the top right hand side of the diorama.it took me 5 days to complete what is now a stunning airport!
