Default Knuffingen Airport...Miniaturwunderland

The "Miniaturwunderland" is the largest Modell-railway in the world, with about a million visitors per year!

It is located in the "Speicherstadt" in Hamburg, Germany.

And now the really important fact:

They are building an airport in 1:100, but not just a moddel, but with all the movements of a normal Airport, go check out the first of thirteen videos of the "video-diary" of the founder of the "Miniaturwunderland" (unfortunately only in german):

YouTube - Gerrits Tagebuch Vol.1 - Grundlagen & kleine Katastrophen

And here's the homepage of this diary with a lot of pictures and backgroundstorys:

Gerrits Tagebuch

Enjoy it as much as I do


Edit:
By the way, grand opening of the Airport is planned for autumn 2010!!!

I've been a couple of times whilst I was in Hamburg.
It's an amazing display and well worth a visit.
I look forward to seeing the airport once it's completed.

Wow, at first I thought this was a private collection this guy was building. It would be cool if Gemini or Herpa could come up with a system of magnets that could run under an airport and cause the planes to move.

if loxx kinda suxx then why did minature wonderland try to copy them. not saying that minatur wunderland isnt freaking amazing. just that i like both just as much. they both have there good points. loxx is 1/87 while minature wunderland is 1/100. sounds are good though.
