Default Xīn lóng International 1:400 - New Modern Chinese Airport

Hi all. I have started work on my third model airport diorama to complement my two retro-airports. This time its strictly modern and A380 capable. I've begun a new blog on my website to cover construction of the new airport plus mods to the existing ones. Groundbreaking at Xīn lóng International Airport was last month and here's the first blog entry with photos:

Interesting recycling of materials you found around the house.

I appreciate efforts like this, where the builder documents the step-by-step progress and the materials and techniques used.

Big progress and a step change improvement from my past airports has come with the use of a new tool for the airport markings. Here's part 3 of my airport blog:

Hi all - though I've been working on Wright Field a bit of recent that doesn't mean work has stopped on Xin Long my modern Chinese airport diorama.

In this post I have started on the terminal-pier connector:

Things are coming along well with the model and in this post I move onto the east pier connector:

So does this mean they are closing down Long Dong John International Airport to focus on this new construction?

Airbridges are important for any modern airport so its annoying that I can't get the Gemini ones to work properly. What am I doing wrong?

Great diorama, especially the background.

How it would look if you take a more lower view with your camera?

I've been playing about with some photos. Focus becomes an issue the lower you get but there'll be a post soonish with some results

Updates, updates, updates and corrections. Yes there had been mistakes, but thanks to my dear readers they are hopefully fixed! Also I've been playing with the camera so here are the first real live photos from Xin Long:

not a bad work but as a chinese I think the design is too western. In China, the logo are usually traditional font with red colour.

Xīn lóng International Airport is back in business. She survived the move and with a bit of extra work is now looking better than ever. This is just the beginning as in the next week or so she should have her own website up and running. Check out progress here:

As I mentioned in the last blog update I've been working on the finishing touches to Xin Long and to celebrate that it now has its own website (a sister site to Yesterday's Airlines). Check it out for details of the airport's layout, construction and the first of the photo galleries. There'll be plenty of new photos to come and I hope to use it to showcase my growing modern collection. Take a look here:

Time to get back into the airport dioramas. One thing I almost never see in people's models are plausible taxiways and runways. Hopefully my additions will keep it 'as real as it gets'. Here's the start:

In trying to keep it looking realistic it pays to checkout real sources when designing your airport. Now its time to markup the taxiways and runways that's just what I have done. Phase 2 is nearing completion so check out progress here:

Absolutely love it.

Next year I'm planning to make one using some Gemini buildings, but I am going to adopt your method of painting the taxiways and hardstands. I've tried using foils in the past but the humidity here causes them to warp and/or bubble. I plan to revisit your page in the future and learn more about how you did the straight lines, and what type(s) of yellow you used (among other things).

Anyway, great job. Inspires the sort of wonderment that I like about this hobby.

It's been too long between updates so there's a backlog of progress at Xin Long. In part 2 of my report on construction of terminal 2 we get into the painting and sprucing up the terminal bit, Take a look here:
