Smile My first airport (Terminal 1) 1:500

Hey guys, today, I finished my first actual airport building and thought, you all should see it. It's all made from paper and overhead transparencies.

I hope you like it.

Remarkable craftsmanship!! Really?? Out of paper?!? There needs to be a rating system here. I'd give that 243 out of 5 stars.

Great work! If I were to critique it, I would say make the window panes (acetate) darker.

Keep the photos coming. Would love to see some planes parked on your terminal!

I transferred my terminal 1 from my desk to the floor and added another gangway.
Here are some new pics, I just made:

Nice work. A great deal of patience I might add. Dare I ask, will there be a Terminal 2?

First: thanks to you all. It gives me the will to continue my work

And: yes, there will be a terminal 2 soon, but it's planned to be a cheap tiny terminal for low-cost airlines. They did that on my home airport (Berlin-Tegel) and it looks a bit like a construction site...

Today, I added two runways, an airfield, an airport tower (made from cardboard) and a hangar (made from cardboard some weeks ago):



And this was the official opening with the landing of the Ju52 "D-AQUI" by Lufthansa:


In two weeks time, I will have to put it away and start revising for uni

Default Terminal 2 added

Hey guys,
after buying another Air Berlin plane yesterday, I decided to build terminal 2 today. This is, what came out:
First an overview (the black boxes are the new terminal):

A closer view (in the background, you can see a roofed pavement, saying "Welcome to Berlin." in German and English, sponsored by airberlin):


That's my new Airbus A320 (as you can see, the colours are not the best, because it was getting dark already, when I took the photo):


And finally: the moveable staircase, I created today:

It's a very nice airport!

I think you have a little space problem in your house :-)

Can't wait to see more!

Concur! Also, I like how you have made it fit within the confines of the room. Nice little hangar area around the corner too!

Thanks.

I created everything in Word and printed it on either paper (190g/m²) or acetate sheets. For the "terminal building" I made a footprint of every single floor to know, what I need for the inside life and where to put it.
I used ordinary paper glue (stick). Hope, that helps you.
For the runway and taxiway I simply used ordinary paper (DIN A3) and a pencil The most difficult thing was to make it fit in the corner of my room between the window and a shelf.
I would really like to show some more pictures, but I already destroyed it.

I am currently working on a paper model of Berlin Tegel Airport, but I'm afraid it won't be finished until next summer

You already destroyed it? Shame.

I like the features visible inside the terminal, but once you got that far, it looks a little lonely in there. Any chance to put some people inside?

Actually, I only destroyed the runway and the taxiways. The terminal building is still 'alive'.
I don't know, whether I can put people in it. I thought about it but finally didn't do it, because I haven't got any and I have no idea, where to buy them. But it should be possible to put some people inside.

I believe, this was a question, so I put all my vehicles together in one document and printed it out as a pdf.

It contains the moveable staircases, the airport tug and three different kinds of buses, we have in Berlin (MAN Lion's City (double decker), Mercedes Benz Citaro (long and short version)).
I hope, it'll help ya all

Nice airport! I like it that one runway is shorter than another. Gives it a more realistic feeling. Is your airport built on the ground of a room?
